Not Enough Shut-Eye? Try Yoga Nidra – It’s Transformational Sleep Time!

Not Enough Shut-Eye? Try Yoga Nidra – It’s Transformational Sleep Time

Yogic Sleep

Yoga Nidra, Yogic Sleep, Guided Relaxation – It’s all Transformational Sleep!

Most of us do not get enough rest. As a culture, we’re always connected, often stressed, and our nervous systems are constantly in a fight-or-flight, sympathetic state. Yoga nidra is an effective and efficient way to access the “rest and digest” parasympathetic state, which is where healing happens.

Yoga nidra is often referred to as “yogic sleep,” a paradoxical state of being between sleep and consciousness that’s conducive to deeply emotional and physical healing, rewiring your brain, and self-exploration. The practice of yoga nidra starts with a personal intention. So while it truly depends on the intention, yoga nidra will help you rest, restore, de-stress, increase awareness, undo bad habits, and eventually understand your true calling and higher purpose.

​In addition to the benefits of the actual practice, yoga nidra is accessible to everyone, can be done almost anywhere at very low cost, and is a simple way to start a meditation practice.

An entire Yoga Nidra session is done while lying down in final relaxation.

Come joins us in Beginners Yoga on Monday night at 6:15 PM where we do some mindful movement, breathwork, guided rest and gratitude!  $10 at Wesley UMC, 3515 Helena Avenue, Nederland, Texas.

How to Ease the Back Pain. Shh! You Need to Know. It’s Yoga.

How To Ease Back Pain. You Need To Know. It’s Yoga…

The economy is in the dumps. Gas prices continue to shoot upwards. Your kids may be off from school and driving you up the wall.

It’s summer, very nearly fall time. It used to be vacation time. If only you can take a vacation from stress.

Now you can. Right now while you read this post.

Sit up straight and take a deeper breathe than you normally do. Hold it for a second or two, and let the air out with a sigh. Go ahead. No one will notice.

Now, do it again. Take a deeper breathe than before. Hold it for a moment or two and just… let … it … go.

Most people tend to breathe very shallow in their chest. Shallow breathing promotes stress and tension. Deep breathing melts it away.

In a few minutes of deep breathing, you can actually eliminate all stress and tension, lower your blood pressure, and instantly gain a lot more positive attitude.

My name is Gail Pickens-Barger and I teach yoga in Nederland, Texas. Forget what you’ve heard about yoga. You do not have to twist yourself into a pretzel to do yoga. It’s for everyone. Whether you are in shape or not.

And the benefits are immediate.

It’s the start of a new school year, so this is the best time to get started eliminating your stress with yoga.

Come to my Monday night Yoga Class at 6:15 p.m. at Wesley United Methodist Church, starting Monday, October 15th, 2018 and I’ll show you some simple techniques that will eliminate your stress. And with continued yoga practice, your stress will be gone for good.
