PRIVATE YOGA ~ YOGA NIDRA
What is Yoga Nidra
WHY PRACTICE YOGA NIDRA?
There is a paradigm shift from thinking and doing to feeling and being during this type of meditation. Yoga Nidra literally translates to “yogic sleep”. Through guided meditation into this state, the body restores the senses and mind to their natural function and awakens a subconscious awareness that allows you to feel a sense of connectedness. It is said that doing 45 minutes of yogic sleep accounts to the benefits of up to 3 hours of actual sleep.
BENEFITS OF YOGA NIDRA
The practice of Yoga Nidra has been found to reduce anxiety and tension. It helps cope with the negative effects of an overstimulated autonomic nervous system including high anxiety, headache, chest pain, sweating, palpitations and abdominal pain. Yoga Nidra can have powerful psychological benefits as well in healing mental or emotional wounds, and assists those dealing with depression and dependency.
