Yoga Nidra

 Yoga Nidra is also known as 'Yogic Sleep'. It is a conscious relaxation practice that is intended to induce total physical, mental and emotional relaxation. The practice of Yoga Nidra encourages us to simply let go. As we journey through the practice we want to welcome all sensations, emotions and thoughts, in doing so we can become less attached. 

No prior yoga or mediation experience needed.

All you need is a quiet space where you are able to lay or sit in a comfortable position.

Meet Your Instructor

Welcome to Yoga Nidra with Lisa. I walked into my first Yoga Nidra class in 2017 and I immediately fell in love. It did feel a bit strange at first, getting all comfy and cozy to lay in a room of strangers, but after the class I felt so at peace. I have never experienced such deep relaxation as I do in Yoga Nidra; it is just what I need to help  relax from the fast paced crisis work I do during the day.

Thank you Lisa for putting such time and energy into amazing classes. I absolutely loved it. After spending time with meditation, your classes are by far my favourite of anything I've tried.


I found Yoga Nidra when I needed it the most. I had no prior experience with yoga nidra and it gave me time to relax, to think about my state of mind and all the emotions I was experiencing and it helped me build confidence to move forward. Lisa's sessions were calming, safe and they catered to the individual members in the class. She was also very accommodating with my busy schedule. I learned a lot from Yoga Nidra with Lisa!
