4-9 November Fasting Retreat with Pure Wellbeing

11-14 November Yoga Nidra Retreat with Ian Melrose This is an ancient Himalayan supine guided meditation, also called yogic sleep. It is a spiritual path, also extremely helpful for relaxation and healing mento-emotional- physical stress patterns. It is not a yoga posture practice. The ‘goals’ of yoga nidra are peace, happiness and joy called samadhi, where there’s connection to everyone and everything.  Yoga Nidra enquires into the nature of everything and answers the question of who we are. Please email ianmelrose52@gmail.com for more details.
