What is Yoga Nidra?

 

Yoga Nidra

It’s cellular. Transformative. Mind shifting.

Yoga Nidra is an ancient practice that can be traced back to around 1000 BC. As our planet becomes bombarded with more and more technological advances and our lives rapidly become outpaced, we humans have a deep need for this practice more than ever.

It is where the Quantum meets the Spirit.

It’s easier than meditation, yummier than yoga and when you practice on a regular basis you restore your body, and rewire your mind.

It’s like coming home to yourself after a long, hard day.

There is no need to sit uncomfortably upright and fiddle around during this meditation, no, we lie down, in Savasana, comfortable, relaxed, easy. Quite often when people begin this practice they fall asleep, and that’s okay, but eventually one sinks in and learns to move through the slower brain waves landing in an altered state of awareness. This is where the magic happens.

Studies show that one hour in Yoga Nidra is as restorative as four hours of uninterrupted sleep.

Yoga Nidra is a practice that slowly, gently lifts away not only your stress but it wiggles loose any layers of illusion that distract you, from you. During the practice you are able to reconnect deeply to your Highest Self realigning to who you know you are here to be.

During this time of connection you have access to deep insights, your inner vision, subconscious programming and greater self-love.  Your old thinking can disappear, behaviors can change, and your awareness shifts to greater self care, this is nothing short of a gift to give yourself.

When the mind and body connect, the nervous system can reach a state of calm and ease, your hormones shift and your body and life become balanced.

Yoga Nidra is is a state of consciousness between waking and sleeping, a guided journey through the Koshas or layers of the body to transcend your conscious thinking. We move from the everyday living brain state, High Beta Brain and access  your Alpha + Theta brain wave states. When we reach these states, we can clear out old unconscious programming and amplify your potential to create positive and life-affirming neural-pathways in your brain which translate seamlessly into your every day living experience.

Intuition, greater creativity and deep healing

transpire in these deeper brain states.
