Combine deep relaxation and nature to increase well-being, focus and creativity

A workshop that will bring deep relaxation and calmness into your full day


Sometimes life can feel full. Some days may be filled with feelings of stress or anxiety. Your to-do list at home and in the office are long. Your co-workers, boss and family want your attention.

But what if you can just step out of your familiar (work) environment for a moment and give yourself the gift of self-care. Something to use as a counterbalance to everything that feels overwhelming and to the challenges that are there on a daily basis, emotionally, physically and mentally.

Now is the perfect moment to take that time.


Afterwards you will:

+ feel relaxed and rested
+ have more focus, enhanced problem solving and creativity
+ experience an increased sense of well-being


It gives you peace and space in your head and simultaneously activates your creativity. You will feel rested and can continue your day with healthy energy.

This is for …


This workshop is great to use within companies as part of their wellness approach or as a team day. Support your employees with a healthy lifestyle and self-care or use it to strengthen the connection within the team.


EcoNidra can be a nice part of your self-care practice. A moment for yourself, deep relaxation and restoring from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Sign up for a class here.


Econidra is also available for a private group. A moment of relaxation with a group of friends or family for example. Possibly combined with a walk through nature or a creative activity.

The workshop


The EcoNidra Session


Imagine yourself laying down on your back and being guided on a series of journeys through your senses, body and nature. The techniques of the practice allow you to relax in such a deep way that you may feel more refreshed than after a couple of hours of sleep.

Accessibility and duration
EcoNidra is just like YogaNidra accessible to everyone. If laying down isn’t possible for you, you will be able to join in a sitting position. During the session you will be guided by my voice and listening to the sounds of nature.

The session will last no longer than an hour. This includes some time before and after the EcoNidra itself which lasts about 45 minutes.

The preparation depends on how and where the session will take place. Details will be sent in advance.



Choose your additional options


  • A short walk in nature
    We can start with a short walk in nature. It helps to make the transition from everyday life easier. And offers an additional way to invite nature into your day. 

  • Integration through writing or art journaling
    Using (journaling) prompts to reflect on your experience with the econidra sessions and to make the benefits part of everyday life. You can write your answers or use any other creative way when words are not a right fit for you. 

  • Guided reflection
    You can use this guided reflection to deepen the connection in your team, to exchange experiences with each other in a group or 1:1 with me. I will facilitate a safe environment where everybody is free to share what feels good. No judgement, no obligations, just sharing and listening.

Working with Nathalie

Educator and mentor

I am a certified yoga nidra and econidra facilitator. I also have 20+ years of experience in (mental) health care and education as a behavioral scientist, schoolpsychologist and family therapist.

Rest, selfcare, nature and creativity are important components of the work I do. EcoNidra is a unique addition to this. The method provides a beautiful experience to relax deeply, restore and connect with yourself, your needs, desires and intentions. Nothing too spiritual, just very down to earth and practical.

What EcoNidra is based on


Family of Yoga Nidra

Econidra contains techniques from yoganidra. There is a focus on breathing, awareness of your senses and of your body. You slow down and unwind and eventually enter a state of deep relaxation.


EcoNidra adds elements of nature. Nature and its sounds have positive effects on humans. They relax, help unwind and reduce stress.

Thank you for your interest in working with me.
