What is Yoga Nidra?
Yoga Nidra (which means "yogic sleep") is a powerful form of yoga practiced for thousands of years as a process of awakening to one's True Self, the indestructible center in each of us that is already peaceful, joyful, wise, soulful, luminous and loving.
How is it practiced?
Using specialized relaxation exercises, breathing techniques, meditation and guided imagery, the teacher will lead you far beyond deep relaxation to a place of natural peace and quiet that is tremendously healing.
The first stage of relaxation brings about a calm mind while the body feels heavy and deeply relaxed. During the second stage, you'll experience an inner stillness. As relaxation progresses, the heaviness lifts and you'll begin to feel light and buoyant. It is somewhat like lingering in the interval between being awake and asleep. Eventually, you will be able to remain alert and aware with a spacious, timeless feeling that is extremely peaceful while your mind and body sleep.
What will I experience?
At its minimum, Yoga Nidra will lead you to experience profound relaxation, the release of chronic stress, restful sleep, resolution to many of your life's conundrums and a greater sense of harmony in your daily life and relationships.
In its ultimate revelation, Yoga Nidra points directly to your True Nature, to peace that is beyond description and that is your birthright. This peace is not an empty promise or only for a selected few but is present and available to you right now. It is a delicious, profoundly healing practice that is available to everybody.
