Watch for the Yoga Nidra Club Kick-off in November !
Yoga Nidra means Yogic Sleep
Yoga Nidra, or “Yogic Sleep”, is a deeply relaxing guided meditation experience. During this practice, you are guided to a deep state of consciousness that enables you to work through past emotional scars and samskaras (deeply ingrained patterns). Yoga nidra can also assist you in manifesting your deepest desires.
The best part is that you don’t need to do anything but lay still and listen. As your thinking mind stills, your intuitive, inner wisdom will take hold, quietly processing your hurts and scars. By the end of your yoga nidra practice, you will feel extremely relaxed & rejuvenated.
How to Practice Yoga Nidra
You will be lying still throughout your meditation practice, so it is often helpful to do 10 – 20 minutes of pranayama (breath) and/or asana practice beforehand to prepare the body and mind. Create a comfortable, quiet environment where you will not be disturbed. A small blanket roll under your neck and a bolster or cushion under your knees can help support the body. Pulling a blanket over yourself is great, too – your body will cool during meditation.
Pick a practice duration that fits your schedule and a theme that suits your current needs. It best to use the same yoga nidra for awhile before switching to another.
