See below excerpts by Victoria Woodhall:
“Can a Braingasm class calm even the most racing and sceptical of minds? Paul Selvey, the lithe and seemingly ageless yoga teacher and Yoga Nidra expert who designed it, certainly thinks so. So far, the class has always been full.”
“First up, five minutes of Brahmari or humming bee breath, where we hum out a kind of continuous ‘om’ sound, which sends vibrations to every crevice of my brain. It feels pleasantly zingy.”
“Then comes a ‘brain kriya’. Paul asks us to chant a specific mantra as we bring attention to three different parts of the brain: ‘hrimmmmm’ for the frontal lobe and then ‘shrimmmm’ for the left hemisphere and ‘klimmmmm’ for the right. ”
“Then, the main event, the yoga nidra, which Paul describes as a journey into the subconscious. ‘It’s somewhere between a deep sleep — although the mind is fully awake — and a meditation.’ It starts with a guided body scan, where I have to picture every part of my body in order to let it go. I’m so heavy I can barely move, but my mind is light and I’m following Paul’s voice into the dark cave as I continue my journey.”
“They leave smiling, with bright eyes and a chilled demeanour, clearly satisfied.”
