Yin & Nidra for ADHD and busy minds
People with ADHD and busy minds can struggle to switch off. Some meditation techniques can be challenging when the mind is racing from one thing to the next!
Yoga Nidra, also known as Yogic sleep, is a type of guided meditation which guides us through different brain wave states into a place of deep rest, where we aim to find a state of consciousness where the body is deeply relaxed and the mind is awake. Scientists and researchers are discovering more and more evidence of how different forms of meditation and ‘non-sleep deep rest’ are beneficial to brain health, focus, concentration and general wellbeing. Recent research highlights how even a short session of Nidra can stimulate the brain's adaptive capabilities, fostering resilience and mental clarity.
During this workshop we will embark on a relaxing journey tailored for the restless mind. Designed specifically for those navigating the challenges of ADHD or busy minds, in this transformative session, we'll explore the gentle yet powerful practices of Yin Yoga, allowing for deep release and relaxation in the body's tissues. Then moving into our Yoga Nidra, we’ll ease into a state of conscious relaxation, offering respite for overactive minds. In this workshop we’ll benefit from the healing power of these practices to cultivate a sense of calm amidst the chaos, providing a moment of inner peace and restoration for those navigating the complexities of ADHD.
Perfect for:
People with ADHD and anyone seeking solace from the demands of a busy mind.
About Sarah
Initially drawn to the physical element of yoga, I started practicing Vinyasa yoga. After a short while I started to recognise the non physical benefits that yoga brings. The positive energy, mental clarity and sense of calm that yoga gave me became so important that I went on to complete my 200hr Vinyasa teacher training. I’m passionate about making sure that yoga is accessible and inclusive for everyone. I’m especially keen on creating safe spaces for apprehensive yogi’s, bigger bodies and people who think they don’t fit the image of a Western Yogi. I like to teach classes to a bold soundtrack, with focus on relaxation, strength, flowing movement and body gratitude. My Yoga is not purely about the physical element, Yoga is a great system to help you through life and I try to weave a little philosophy into each class! I am learning to honour the roots of Yoga and make sure that my practice and my teaching is useful to our busy Western lives without appropriating the culture.
