Yoga Nidra—known as yogic sleep—is a meditation and conscious relaxation practice that is intended to induce total physical, mental, and emotional relaxation. An hour of yoga nidra can be as restorative as four hours of regular sleep. Experience a totally relaxed, blissful state, and profound benefits including:
Ease insomnia - Decrease anxiety - Alleviate stress - Reduce PTSD, chronic pain and chemical dependency - Heighten awareness & focus - Transform negative habits & behaviors - Foster feelings of peace, calm, & clarity.
Although there are many different ways of teaching and practicing yoga nidra, ours include stages to relax the body, mind and emotions:
- Body awareness
- Breath awareness
- Emotional awareness
- “Waking up” or re-integration
Each step is intended to take you deeper into an altered state of consciousness—the state between asleep and awake—where you’re fully conscious but your body and mind are fully at rest and ease. When you set a conscious intention at the beginning of your yoga nidra practice, and then let go and allow for deep relaxation of the body, mind and emotions, your unconscious opens up to new ways of thinking, healing, and fulfilling your conscious intentions.
