Radhe (Swami Anandaradha) has taught yoga, relaxation and meditation practices for more than 35 years. A former director of Satyananda Ashram NZ Ltd, she is currently a trustee of Shraddha Yoga and Meditation and has a full time day job teaching Year 9 to 13 mathematics throughout Northland with Te Aho o Te Kura Pounamu (the correspondence school).

This workshop is offered by Radhe several times a year in the Whangarei district (the next one will be in Term 4 at Kara Kokopu Hall) and also at Moonlight Healing in Hokitika (scheduled for July).

The relaxation practice is called yoga nidra, or psychic sleep. This relaxes the whole person deeply as the brain is aware and yet in the state between that of waking and sleep, one hour of this practice being equivalent to 4 hours restful sleep.

In the workshop, a 20 minute and a 1 hour version of this practice are done. A popular technique, yoga nidra is utilised by many practitioners and teachers of yoga as well as in related fields such as therapy and counselling. Done lying down, there is no effort required.

The meditation practice taught in this workshop is Ajapa Japa, involving breath awareness and silent repetition in the mind of the mantra that the sound of the breath emulates. As breath awareness is the main component, this is an easy technique to learn. This is taught in stages in the workshop; regular practice for 10+ minutes at least once a day at home, preferably twice a day, increases the benefits.

There will be a short break of 15 – 20 minutes in the middle of the 3-hour workshop. Juice and teas will be provided. This is not obligatory, but you are welcome to bring along any healthy snacks or fruit.

Wear warm, comfortable clothing. Bring your water bottle, rug, cushion/s.

Cost of the workshop includes a memory stick or CD with the techniques on it. 10% reduction for paying in advance.
