"What a blessing to have this beautiful practice right on my doorstep. My spiritual journey began in ernest some 50 years ago. It's taken me down some amazing paths of discovery & nutured me through times of challenges disappointments loss & sadness. In recent years the practice of Yoga Nidra has been coming up repeatedly through various obscure references that lead me to research it in more depth. My daily meditation/mindfulness practice has been so beneficial but I sensed there was even greater depths still untapped. It has been my experience when embarking on something new, books videos utube etc on the subject are very useful however for me I seek out a more personal hands on approach. And so along came Anna & Yogartnidra. What an amazing experience to be guided by her soothing voice to the deeper levels of consciousness to a place of total peace calm & stillness. My previous knowledge of such depths have made me skeptical & nervous thinking perhaps of the Beetles & Indian gurus transcendental meditation, trances & zombie states of consciousness. With Anna I feel completely safe in allowing my body & mind to relax & rest. That feeling continues long after the session is over which is something I've never experienced in other mediation practices. So whatever brought you to the Sunshine Coast Anna I am very grateful. Blessings Trish."

Yoga Nidra is an accessible practice available in some form to almost everyone. The practice takes place lying down. It requires no special skills, other than to follow the instructions which consist of a systematic process for complete relaxation of body and mind by taking the awareness to different aspects of experiences such as breath, sense awareness, parts of the body and different layers of mental awareness. Gradually all tension in the body and mind is released in a careful and deliberate way that creates profound relaxation.

The intention (sankalpa) or affirmation, which is part of yoga nidra, allows us to shape our own future (steer your life in the direction you want to go rather than where habits tend to take us). The practice creates a profound release from the mind's entanglement in the sensory world. The effect creates energy and a freshness in body and mind.

During a 45 minute guided meditation session, facilitated by Anna, all you need to do is rest on your mat with a pillow and blanket and use your breath, body and awareness techniques to help you move into progressive states of relaxation and eventually resting in stillness.

This session includes watercolour painting ‘meditation creations’ after the Yoga Nidra.

Anna is an internationally certified yoga nidra facilitator (Amrit Institute) and trained by Kamini Desai, author of 'Yoga Nidra. The Art of Transformational Sleep'). Anna is a Member of Yoga Australia and part-time Kindergarten teacher on the Sunshine Coast. Anna became interested in the health benefits of Meditation and Yoga Nidra during her yoga teacher training in an effort to assist with her own health issues including menopausal hot flushes (which have now reduced from 20 a day to maybe 1 or 2). She is one of the few Facilitators on the Sunshine Coast. Anna was a presenter at 2018 YogaFest Sunshine Coast, Noosa Regional Art Gallery 2018 'Imagineate Festival' and the Noosa Yoga Festival, Nov, 2018).

Yoga Nidra slows the rate at which you age (Ref. Shealy, C. Norman. "A review of dehyrdroepiandrosterone (DHEA)." Integrative Physiological and Behavioural Science 30.4 (1995):308-313.
