Yogic Sleep Therapy Workshop – August in person and online (2 hour workshop $40) Please register your interest here

DSCN0092Is sleep an elusive beast for you? Perhaps you have trouble nodding off, or maybe you wake up frequently? Would you like to learn some simple yogic practices that will help you to get the rest you need?

Sometimes it takes more that a few postures at bedtime to set yourself up for a good sleep. We need to be preparing for sleep throughout the day! Learn how to do this, how to live according to the Chi body clock and also how to make the most of your dreams. You might be waking/not sleeping as your body is trying to tell you something important. Postures, breathwork, meditation and dream journaling can hold the key to better rest.

Please register your interest here and we will fathom the times and days that suit most people. 

First Light – a 6 week spring clean on all levels August 3-Sept 21 $40 snowdrops

This fire festival marks the first stirrings of Spring. The days may be sullen and grimly cold but there is a marked change to the length of the days, bringing hope that Spring is on the way. This is when we traditionally start spring cleaning, purification and renewal. We shall be doing this with a gentle toning of our elimination organs, simple breathing and meditations and a bit of a declutter and clean of our surroundings on a week by week basis. I consider the 6 weeks between First Light and the Spring Equinox as an opportunity to spring clean my whole life. Just as the increased light shows up all the cobwebs in your room corners, it also beams in upon stale mindsets and jaded bodies. Awaken yourself slowly from hibernation.

Please register your interest here You will receive a weekly detailed email with instructions, recipes and a zoom recording of a class so you can practice daily.

Matariki Nidra Nest – a 6 week slumber party of effortless meditation 21st June-2nd August – via recordings. Free  You can access the recordings here on Arrow FM

Yoga relaxation at Odette Rowe's Wairarapa yoga classes

Curl up this winter for our Matariki Nidra Nest. This 6 week slumber party celebrates the seasonal shift from Solstice and Matariki through until First Light and Pakawera following the path of the lunar cycle. This is a potent time to rest, recuperate and sow the seeds of your dreams for the future. Each week you will receive a nidra recording that you can listen to and explore Matariki in this creative, effortless,  liminal space between sleep and being awake. All you need is a computer, tablet or phone to open the recording and 20 mins to lie down and listen. You can also attend the Nourish and Nidra class live and also via zoom each Monday if you prefer the live experience. If you have never experienced Yoga Nidra before then this is a great time of year to start as our bodies need to rejuvenate over winter. Please book in here
