Yoga Nidra is a yogic sleep, a deep state of consciousness between the waking and sleeping state. This meditative practice induces a full rest and relaxation experience using body scanning, breath awareness, guided imagery and and setting a sankulpa; a intention for healing and transformation.
In this guided meditative journey your brain shifts from its awake state of active beta brainwaves, to deeper delta and theta brainwave patterns. These deeper brain wave patterns guide us to different realms of consciousness, intuition, vision and inner wisdom.
Yoga Nidra also helps to regenerate the nervous system from sympathetic/stress induced response to parasympathetic function; rest, digest, and healing mode.
Yoga Nidra can be practiced anytime, and is done lying comfortably on the bed or floor with props/pillows. It’s a guided meditation technique that can last anywhere from 20 minutes to 2 hours.
Anyone can practice Yoga Nidra! You do not have to practice Yoga asana or any other form of Yoga to get the benefits of this practice.
