Blindfold Yoga & Nidra Deluxe

  • Wellness Sanctuary 32A Main Street Napier, Hawke's Bay, 4110 New Zealand (map)

❤️ Hey precious lights - the only way out is in. You know that right? 

Join us for this one off adventure within with a specially crafted BLINDFOLD YOGA session led by Sarah Beale (yogini master and Wellness Sanctuary studio owner) and YOGA NIDRA with Kate McLeay (moi - so what can I say .. I love what I do and I’m getting pretty good at it to). 

Blindfold Yoga and Yoga Nidra are Pratyahara practices (a withdrawal of the senses from illusion to allow focus on the path to peace) and have become popular worldwide over recent years for good reason. 

Pratyahara practices lead to a profound state of relaxation, expanded self-awareness, and inner stability. They help us master both the body and the mind.

When you remove the use of the most dominant sense organ of sight in Blindfold Yoga, your other senses heighten naturally. This allows you to get curious and look deeply within to observe your habitual patterns within your practice to what is and isn’t best serving you. You will get physically stronger and you have a window into your deeper, inner-most thoughts. 

The Blindfold Yoga will segway into a Yoga Nidra for Transmutation and Awakening. Yoga Nidra is a systematic form of guided meditation and relaxation to clear the path. To remind and reinforce internal tools to ride the waves of life with intention and attention. Grace and ease. To release stress, build new pathways in the brain and strengthen the immune system. To know how to access peace whatever life brings.
