YOGA NIDRA FOR DEEP RELAXATION
WHY YOGA NIDRA?
Through the practice of Yoga Nidra, you can deeply relax and let go of physical, emotional, and mental tension. Significant stress reduction and better self-understanding developed in regular Yoga Nidra sessions can help you to rejuvenate, support new healthy habits, maintain body-mind balance, and reach your full creative potential.
Benefits of Yoga Nidra
WHAT IS YOGA NIDRA?
The practice of Yoga Nidra [Sanskrit: योग निद्रा; where yoga means union and nidra means sleep] originates from India. It is an ancient technique encouraging deep conscious relaxation, in which you are neither completely asleep nor really awake. During this systemic practice, one enters a deep state of conscious sleep to let the body rest in complete stillness and rejuvenate.
In Yoga Nidra, one turns inwards and, for a moment, disconnects from the external world. The senses, intellect, and mind have an opportunity to relax. In that state, the brain activity reduces and the body can naturally heal. By observing our internal reality, we can calm down, learn self-compassion, and come back to ourselves.
Through Yoga Nidra, we get a chance to create more self-awareness and reconnect with our bodies. Ultimately, Yoga Nidra can lead to the discovery of your full creative potential and self-realization. Becoming free from the fluctuations of the mind and observing the Self can bring more joy, ease, and freedom in your everyday life.
Yoga Nidra can be practiced by anyone, individually or in groups. In general, it is safe to take part in Yoga Nidra sessions. However, you should consult your doctor and/or Yoga Nidra teacher before you decide to enter the practice. Especially, if you struggle with severe mental or physical disorders.
Nothing can replace a restful night’s sleep. Still, Yoga Nidra is excellent too for maintaining overall good health in times of stress and while your sleep patterns are challenged by various (expected and unexpected) life events.
