These movement practices are based on the principles of friendliness, deep listening and welcoming of all experiences – a profound honoring of precious body, and exploration of bodysensing, subtle practices and wisdom teachings throughout. Instead of you being in service to the movements, allow the practices to be in service to what you need most... which of course changes with the changing cycles of the day to day, the year to year, the decade to decade...

IRest® Yoga Nidra is a guided meditation that can be experienced as a deep relaxation and/or a meditative inquiry. A modern formulation of the ancient form of yoga nidra meditation, iRest Yoga Nidra is provides an opportunity to pause in an oasis of self-reflection, and to cultivate the ability to skillfully navigate the many challenges that life presents. iRest Yoga Nidra is particularly helpful in connecting to an unshakable place of calm, balance and stability as you navigate family and/or work stress, live times of transition or crisis, or wish to complement a journey of healing.

The practice is extraordinary and I’m so, so, so, so very grateful to be able to connect once again with yoga in THIS way, with YOU as a guide, with the others who join the group because we all have this in common. I cannot express how happy I am to have this opportunity in my life for reconnecting with myself, the world, and with you. You’re extremely present during my practice even through the frame of my iPad screen (see image). Thank you for coming into our lives in this new way. I welcome these sessions in my home with a big big heart and am so happy we have the technology to connect us. I have to say, I hope to keep doing this for a long time....
I needed these practices more than I ever thought. The rhythms of your class, your voice, your reminders, your peace. Thank you endlessly for offering these online. I'm holding far more stress in my body than I thought possible and I can't thank you enough for providing a way to help release it and rejuvenate. It was so soothing to nourish myself and let go of the stress. I feel extremely lucky to be able to introduce my practice back into my life right now and grateful for it to be led by you.
I wanted to tell you how the practice and yoga Nidra helped me find peace in this strange time! It was such a revelation to be able to let go of all the expectations and the stories that I have been holding on to. What should be, what shouldn't be. I am so grateful to you, as always, for being the gateway to another perspective. You truly are a gift!!!!!! Thank you for making this recording and for bringing your practice into my living room. Even though I missed chanting as a group, there was the silver lining of being able to do the practice in my pajamas and bra 😂. I let go of all body image and let my curves hang out. It was blissful.
I am not being very articulate about how grateful I am for your recording. It could not have come at a better time!!!!! Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
I really like your classes, there is something special about it difficult to put in words. I can say though that with you, after 15 years of yoga, I am really starting to integrate the concept of respecting my pace...I also love the creativity you put in it, this makes me want to be more creative. I think you don't just teach yoga, you live it, with such integrity and kindness, that it has this huge impact!
Thanks for these wonderful classes! Although I really enjoy in person classes and the charm and magic of this modality, I surprisingly really enjoy the online version of your classes too! I didn’t think it was for me, but you did a great job at making it interesting and warm but also practical. These online classes are amazing, especially the fact that recorded classes are available, super convenient for new parents ;)
With Clearlight's teaching, I have learned to develop a yoga practice that I can rely on to bring me back to a state of equanimity in what is a very busy life! Her classes are truly a place of non-judgement, sincerity and encouragement. Her long experience and mastery of teaching yoga are evident. Although I maintain my health, strength and flexibility with yoga, her classes are not about comparing or achieving - they really feel like an opportunity to reconnect to my physical, emotional and mental experiences from moment to moment.
The sessions online with you have been soothing, helpful and enlightening for me. You are a real powerhouse as a connector and facilitator. I like the part of connecting to the body and inner spirit and energy and have become aware of new things and feelings. Thank you Clearlight!
We had wonderful session together last night. My husband said he felt rested like having been on a holiday. Thank you for giving these online practices. It is truly wonderful.
Merci pour l'écoute, pour ta compréhension en peu de mots de l'aventure dans laquelle je suis plongée. Je vois de plus en plus la lumière au bout du tunnel, probablement car je me retrouve de plus en plus. Les cours de yoga font partie de ces retrouvailles avec moi. Je tenais à t'en remercier!
I have absolutely loved connecting on the Mondays. Your classes are such a boost to my mental health and it is so incredible to be able to do them from a distance.
As a lawyer and a single mom of a young child, my yoga practice with Clearlight since 2010 has been the beacon of my focus on what really matters. So many incredible things have manifested in my life, simply by being part of the transformative space Clearlight provides her students with during every class. Her teachings are as much part of my daily life as breathing.
I have been returning to my mat for ten years now and I always feel the same pleasure and wellbeing. Clearlight’s voice, guidelines and moves are relaxing, comforting and fortifying. Yoga is a way to escape from the busy life of a working mum of three kids; a time for me to get the energy I need for the rest of the week.
