Yoga Nidra, “the sleep of the Yogi” is a state of deep relaxation with inner awareness that can help you experience a profound release of tension and stress and help you connect with the deep sense of peace that comes from pure and complete relaxation. It is an effortless state of being experienced as a state of pure joy and bliss.
Studies show that about 80% of all illnesses stem from stress. On the most basic level, regular practice of Yoga Nidra is a de-stress program, that can help you experience a profound release of tension, rejuvenate you, refresh you, and help enhance your overall sense of well-being. After a session of Yoga Nidra, you may feel as clear and refreshed as though you’ve enjoyed 3-4hrs of deep restful sleep.
In Yoga Nidra, you will be guided deep into meditation using ancient, systematic relaxation techniques that help brain waves slow down, bringing about a state of extreme relaxation- physically, energetically, and mentally/emotionally.
Based in the Tantric technique of “nyasa,” this practice brings together the Indian Yogic methods of alert and relaxed concentration, compassionate observation, and guided visualization to help withdraw the senses from the external world and move the awareness into the deeper layers of the mind.
In this highly receptive effortless state of being, the ego is left behind opening the doors to receive insight from the deeper levels of inner knowing. Resting in this state of awareness, Yoga Nidra can help you awaken to unconscious barriers such as unhelpful habits, long-held fears, self limiting thoughts, and destructive emotions and empower you to release these deep obstacles and energy blockages that can prevent them you from realizing your highest potential. In this state of conscious relaxation, we’re able to tap into the brilliance of our intuition so that we can solve life’s challenges with greater ease, more understanding, and clarity
In this effortless state of being, we can connect with our highest wisdom. We’re empowered to actualize our most heart-felt intentions. In Sanskrit there is a word for our most heart-felt intentions – Sankalpa. Sankalpa is a resolve that is a reflection of your highest truth, a seed you can create and then plant in the fertile soil of your mind during the practice of Yoga Nidra.
In this class, you will be guided on a meditative journey using ancient, systematic relaxation techniques including body awareness, imagery, and visualization. This class will be offered with a short period of asana (floor postures) and pranayama (directed breathwork) to help prepare body, heart, and mind for the deeper work of the Yoga Nidra practice.
Yoga Nidra is a powerful holistic healing and de-stress practice that brings renewal, restoration and rejuvenation to the physical body. Research studies show that this process of conscious relaxation stimulates the parasympathetic nervous system response in the body, helping to reduce stress hormones and anxiety levels that can lead to many stress-related chronic illnesses and diseases.
Yoga Nidra is a tool for you to use regularly to harness the power of the wisdom within. Come explore this journey and experience for yourself how this practice can help you manifest the life you want aligned with your most heart-felt intentions.
