Yoga Nidra

In Yoga classes we practice Yoga Nidra. It is where the body sleeps, the mind relaxes and consciousness is alert, in yogic terms it is a psychic sleep. You don't have to be a Yoga student to practice it. It's easy, mostly because it can be practiced anywhere; lying down on a bed, on the floor; reclining in a chair.

The main thing to be aware of in this practice is not to fall asleep. There are techniques to use if this happens, and it does happen to most people at some point during the practice. If you fall asleep it is simply an indication of tiredness or exhaustion. Even though you may have the best intentions to stay awake your body gets its needs met by drifting into and out of a sleep state.

When you fall asleep in the practice you are doing Stage one. This gives you a powerful healing and rejuvenation, however, it doesn't provide you with the full potential that Yoga Nidra can give. On a lighter note we can also call it "Yoga Nod Off".

There are many stages in the complete Yoga Nidra experience. Three main stages are:
Stage One. Rest, recover and rejuvenate.
Stage Two. Master your old patterns, negative memories, emotions and desires.
Stage Three. Awareness of your deeper, true self.

When you consistently practice Yoga Nidra, you eventually disconnect from your exhaustion that keeps you at Stage One. When you remain awake through the entire practice, deep releasing of long-held tensions and anxieties begin to happen.

Yoga Nidra Stages Two and Three often require additional instruction and guidance. My own Yoga Nidra - Meditation CD is an effective practice for rest and recuperation, for the management of negative mental and emotional patterns, and for awakening your Sankalpa, your resolve.

Kate Nirlipta is an inspiring beautiful teacher, she taught me how to balance my unbalanced guna's, she gave encouragement with her compassion and I had special emotional moment through her session class. Thank you for guiding me to understand the "Svadhyaya" and the yoga lifestyle about "cleaning the mirror" and "spreading the light". Always love her meditation, relaxation and evening activity. Love the healing power of song "I am the light of my soul" every time I hear the song my heart & soul feels like a blooming lotus flower. I feel so blessed to have you as my teacher and you have helped me to spread my wings…absolutely transforming. Terima kasih banyak ibu cantik. Love always

I am delighted to recommend Kate Nirlipta to anyone at all who is interested in experiencing heart based wisdom through embodied yoga. She is simply the best yoga teacher I have been fortunate enough to learn from. Her approach remains influential in my own practice and teaching. Kate first inspired me fifteen years ago to practice yoga. I was an ex dance teacher still grappling with issues resulting from a car accident and a crushed T12. Her sensitive and knowledgable teaching helped me discover a new way of experiencing my self and my body and began my love affair with the transformative power of yoga on all levels. She also introduced me to the incredible practice of Yoga Nidra . Last year in 2012 I attended a yoga teacher training intensive in Bali largely for the opportunity to again learn from Kate. Her mastery as a teacher and her heart felt warmth and compassion was acknowledged and highly valued by all in the course who were wide ranging in age and cultural backgrounds. She embodies her teaching and has encouraged us all to find our own authentic way to do this in our practice and the classes we offer. I'm deeply grateful for the opportunity to learn from her and would encourage anyone of any age or experience to take to opportunity to learn from this outstanding teacher.

I love yoga with Kate! Yoga day is my favourite day of the week, a special time I dedicate to myself.
Kate has shown me that yoga is so much more than postures and stretches.Her knowledge and experience is shared gently with love and kindness.The Breathing Space studio is filled with loving, healing energy. Natural light floods the room, the birds sing in the garden and the ocean waves area gentle sigh in the distance. A very special place to practice yoga and meditation.
I feel blessed to have found Kate and her classes. Her yoga is the real deal, truly a mind, body and spirit experience. Thank you Kate.
