Beyond Asana - the basics

Three useful practices, breath awareness, yoga nidra and meditation

I hope you found these practices useful. If you wish to continue to access the practices please enrol on the course 'Yoga for Meditation'

1. Introduction to Breath Awareness. Breath awareness helps settle the mind and is a useful technique to develop and maintain presence.
2. Yoga Nidra - Deep Relaxation. This technique induces deep relaxation. Often referred to as 'yogic sleep' it is particularly useful for those who have trouble sleeping.
3. Meditation Technique - Kaya Sthairyam. This is a useful technique for those who wish to learn to meditate.
