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.
