About the Event
Yoga Nidra has been found to have many benefits for the body and mind. Some of these are improving restful sleep, a deep sense of rest and practice do stress management. Regular practice of Yoga Nidra rejuvenates the whole body – going into a deep state of rest and relaxation, hence healing and rejuvenation of the body and mind.
During this practice the body functions become minimal, metabolism slows down, breathing becomes slower and more relaxed, heart rate regulates, and hormonal function increases, leading to releasing of the toxins from the body.
20 min of Yoga Nidra practice can be the equivalent of 2h of restful sleep.What is Yoga Nidra?
Everyone can practice Yoga Nidra. It is beneficial, especially for those who struggle with sleep, trauma, anxiety, panic attacks, PTSD, emotional and physical pain, burn-out, and stress. It helps to experience a greater sense of peace and self-awareness.
Yoga Nidra practise evokes a state of internal awareness.
During the practise, you are lying down without a physical movement and with the intention to not fall asleep.
I will guide you through a detailed and specific script. The goal is to move into a deep state of conscious awareness of the body and mind and deepen the state of relaxation and rest. After setting the intention and "Sankalpa" – heartfelt desire, resolution, you are guided into the practice of rotating your awareness throughout different parts of your body.
In the words of Swami Satyananda:
“It is a state in which you are neither asleep nor awake. If you fall asleep, it is not Yoga Nidra. If you remain awake, then it is also not Yoga Nidra. If dreams overtake you, it is not Yoga Nidra. Yoga Nidra is a state in which there is awareness of the conscious, subconscious, and unconscious fields of your mind all at one time. It is a perfect therapy. It removes all psychological abnormalities and sanskaras, and helps you to become your normal, natural self.”The practice of Yoga Nidra helps to:
