Chocolate Dreaming: Yoga Nidra & Cacao @ Yoga Quarter

Yoga Nidra for Festive Inner Peace

Peace is not something to achieve, but a state of being. One that we ultimately choose to rest in. In the midst of all the ‘craic' at this busy, often stressful & sometimes lonely time of year, Emma is offering a Yoga Nidra practice geared towards inner Peace and Goodwill to Yourself, so that you don’t ‘crack’ up over the holidays. 

Yoga Nidra, one of the most ancient yogic teachings denotes the the sleep of the Yogi & is blended with modern neuroscience to serve as both a form of total relaxation & a mind-body therapy that is accessible to EVERY BODY - whether you have a yoga & meditation practice or are a complete beginner! The practice brings you into a heart centred way of living, clearing out the crap, the limiting self beliefs, the default anxiety settings, realigning you to a more heart centred way of living, of peacefulness, unconditional love, compassion & forgiveness.

Cacao originating from North & South America has been used for eons as a heart opening medicine by the ancient Mayans & Aztecs. The seed from the cacao plant is the active ingredient used in chocolate, cocoa, nibs etc & has always been considered a rich and potent symbol of love. Today it is considered a super food due to its high antioxidant properties and levels of iron & magnesium. Cacao is also a noteable source of flavovoids which help the cardiovascular system and theobromine - a bitter alkaloid which boosts mood & energy. 

Emma is preparing a hot Cacao drink blending raw honey and spices with ceremonial grade Cacao from Peru where she has spent a great deal of time living close to nature and learning the "old ways" that bring us into better balance with Life. Once we set our intentions & drink the Cacao we will snuggle down & be guided through meditation for a double hit of heart opening! 

For those attending, Emma is offering 50% discount on a professional recording of the practice to tap back in & switch off your ‘flight or fight’ stress response & turn on the ‘relaxation response’ whenever you need to. Best of all, 30-40 minutes of Yoga Nidra is said to be equivalent to three hours of sleep, perfect for those in need of a festive rest and reset! 

Booking in advance essential. Please let us know of any dietary requirement in advanced.
