Yoga Nidra...

is about simply releasing tensions, deepening awareness, opening to your true nature and just being.

Relax into Being

Modern life is often absorbed in ‘doing.’ To do lists, rising responsibilities, longer work hours, less sleep and sensory overload are some of the reasons it’s harder to devote quality time to empty out and ‘be.’ This ancient and guided sleep-based meditation has the power to relax, heal and transform your awareness of being. Regardless of your meditation experience or where you are in life, anyone can do & benefit from it. This is ‘True’ physical, emotional & mental tension release that relaxes your thinking mind and allows you to peel away the layers of a conditioned life. By just lying down and listening, you can open doors to a deeper connection within & transform perspectives on what really matters in life. Practice and you will nurture your life intentions and direct your energies towards realizing them with clarity.

Yoga Nidra Benefits

Reduced Stress

Negative stress for prolonged periods of time without true relaxation can lead to illness & dis-ease. Yoga Nidra returns the body’s functions into equilibrium and rejuvenates and clears the mind. Practicing only a few minutes a day can help identify real vs. imaginary stress situations.

Improved Sleep

Whether its difficulty falling asleep, restless sleep or waking up in the middle of the night, to experience the deepest and most healing sleep, brain waves at delta (slow) are optimal to overall well-being. Yoga Nidra can induce this kind of deep peaceful sleep within a single meditation, strengthening the immune system and boosting serotonin and melatonin levels naturally, so that sleep can happen more naturally and regularly.

Resolved Anxiety

The root cause of anxiety is fear. Fear branches out into different types that keep the mind occupied with repeating negative thoughts and put the ‘fight or flight’ response of the nervous system into overdrive. This can lead to more serious physical and emotional illnesses long-term. Yoga Nidra calms the mind, relaxes the body, strengthens personal coping skills and awakens joy and a sense of well-being that diminishes anxiety and panic.

Chronic Pain Relief

The deep state of body & mind rest Yoga Nidra induces enables conscious perspectives of chronic pain to shift, which then reflect positively in body and behavior. This can result in less dependency on man-made meditations for chronic pains like migraines, arthritis, shoulder & neck conditions.

Enhanced Pregnancy Ease

Expecting mamas may experience everything from physical body changes and hormone shifts to sleepless nights and fears & worries about their birth. Yoga Nidra gently connects mama to her center, which deepens connection to her baby and brings about more calmness, energy and clarity for both mama and baby. With a regular Yoga Nidra practice, these qualities can also aid mama during labour, birth and beyond.

Personal & Spiritual Growth

Yoga Nidra’s process enables you to effortlessly open to past experiences and impressions as an observer rather then participant. Unresolved experiences & impressions are welcomed & transformed through intention. This is a key to resolving unwanted habits & behaviors and opening to your ever present True Nature, which is free of all 'doing' and rests as pure conscious 'being.'
