Combining Yoga Nidra and Ayurveda to reach a state of deep relaxation
Have you ever wondered why you sometimes can really enjoy a yoga Nidra session while on other
days you experience extreme discomfort? How is it possible that certain Yoga Nidra sessions can
create irritation or anxiety? Or why are you some days able to completely let go and relax while on
other days you are restless until the end? With Ayurveda this can quite easily be explained as one of
the main views in Ayurveda is that we are all unique, all different and different people need a
different Yoga Nidra practice. From this point of view you can imagine the close relationship
between Yoga & Ayurveda in general. Yes, it’s for a good reason that we call these Indian traditions
What will you learn?
In this session you will be introduced to the basic principles of Ayurveda as well as the three primary
mind-body personalities (the Doshas): Vata, Pitta, and Kapha. You will get to know what is best for
your particular birth constitution (prakruti) and current imbalance (vikruti) in order to balance
yourself with a uniquely designed Yoga Nidra session. For this we will show you how you can view
your Yoga Nidra practice through Ayurvedic glasses. You will learn what kind of sessions are best for
your particular birth constitution (prakruti) and current imbalance (vikruti) in order for you to adjust
your practice according to your needs at that particular moment
Because the Doshas also express in nature and therefore in the seasons of the year is divided into
periods of time in which a certain Dosha is prevalent. Flowing with the seasons is highly
recommended to stay in balance. Meaning that even if your birth constitution differs we all should
take extra care of our Vata Dosha in autumn. Therefore this session will be focused on how to
balance Vata Dosha with Yoga Nidra.
We will cover:
● Pancha Maha Bhutas (5 elements)
● 3 Doshas (Vata, Pitta & Kapha)
● 20 Gunas (the 20 qualities and the principle of “like increases like”)
● Yoga Nidra recommendations for each Dosha
● Special focus on the season of Vata Dosha
Because experience is the best knowledge there is we will definitely end the workshop with a
seasonal vata balancing Yoga Nidra session including a little massage guided by Eliane.
This workshop is for everyone who is interested in Yoga Nidra and/or Ayurveda. There is no need to
have any experience with Yoga Nidra and/or Ayurveda. Everyone is welcome.
Friday 13 December from 17.30 till 19.30 hrs at the White Door Studio.
Eliane and Kim both swapped their corporate life for a more balanced way of living in which Yoga
Nidra and Ayurveda play an important role. As they realized after being completely burned out that
taking a step back to feel instead of think is of utmost importance to find happiness they are on a
mission to share their learnings. Eliane does this mainly via Yoga Nidra and Kim via Ayurveda. But as
always in life combining two wisdoms creates even more knowledge and that is why they decided to
put their heads together and design unique Yoga Nidra sessions which can be used by you according
to your personal needs in a particular moment.
