At Padma Yoga, my classes are organised in levels. This is intended to help you find the most appropriate class for you. Whether you're a complete beginner, returning after injury, illness or a break, or perhaps, a more experienced student, I should have something to suit you.

Would you like more information about a class or to chat about suitability? Feel free to get in touch on 07443 602108 or email claire@padmayogahebden.co.uk. I have lots of experience of teaching students of all ages, along with people who have chronic and terminal health conditions, mobility issues, etc.

Please note that my teaching style is trauma informed. This means you won't be touched or physically adjusted in a pose without prior consent. Whilst I rarely adjust people physically, sometimes it can be helpful. Should I offer you the option of physical adjustment - I only do this with students I know well - it is absolutely your choice to say yes or no.

Satyananda Yoga - Yoga Nidra

Wednesday 18:00-18:45

Venue: Online from 20th May

Yoga Nidra, the practice of psychic sleep, is a systematic deep relaxation practice which induces the state of pratyahara or sense withdrawal.

The practice is taught in laying on the floor. As you are guided through the stages, your awareness is drawn gently inwards, bringing the body to complete stillness and quietening the mind to induce a state of deep relaxation. In this 'hypnagogic state', the body rests but the mind remains alert.

Suitable for new and experienced yoga students, who wish to increase energy levels, calm a busy mind or who would like to improve their relaxation response.

Wear warm comfortable clothing, have a thin cushion, a blanket and any extra padding you might need. The class does not include any posture work.
