Benefits of Yoga Nidra.

Great for Beginners to meditate, those of us needing guided rest for better sleep, easing of pain, and more.

So just to provide a little bit of context, and a little bit of predictability, our Yoga Nidra or our Guided Rest Practice is a form of guided meditation. Still, there is nothing for you to do, except to listen and follow the guidance of the teacher’s voice.

Aside from being relaxing, restorative, and restful, studies have shown that yoga Nidra can also:

  • ease insomnia
  • decrease anxiety
  • alleviate stress
  • reduce PTSD, chronic pain, and chemical dependency
  • heighten awareness and focus
  • transform negative habits, behaviors, and ways of thinking
  • foster feelings of peace, calm, and clarity
  • reduce stress
  • improve sleep
  • help heal trauma
  • reduce chronic pain
  • plant seeds for future growth

People you know may be amazed at the transformation in you.

They’ll want to know the secret.

It’s not a pill…or a drink….

In fact, it’s not a gimmick at all.

It’s just that you’ve discovered the ancient secret that has relieved pain and stress for millions of people.

It’s yoga.

You may have a picture of yoga as a bunch of hyper-thin women doing crazy bendy pretzel poses in tight clothing.

Nope.

Physical yoga is instead a combination of physical stretching, strengthening and toning poses, breathing techniques, and deep relaxation practices that are accessible to everyone and every-body.

It’s a system of healing the body that has worked for thousands of years.

You’ll feel the benefits after just a few sessions. Sessions are available either in a class setting or privately in your own home, whichever is a better fit for your lifestyle.

How to ease back pain with gentle yoga with Gail Pickens-Barger
How to ease back pain with gentle yoga with Gail Pickens-Barger

I bend, so I don’t break. Get moving!

I bend, so I don’t break. Get moving!

I bend so I don’t break.

I bend, so I don’t break. What about you?

So true. If you rest, you will tend to rust. When I taught yoga in Victoria Texas, I had 6 people come to my gentle yoga class that had fibromyalgia.

They told me they hurt if they don’t come, they hurt if they do come to yoga. But the hurt coming out of yoga was of a lot of body relief. They craved coming to class. I think that is because yoga not only works on the body, but the mind, and of easing of pain for some, and getting better sleep.

I think about that class that I had in V-town a lot because that was early on in my yoga career, and I just was a bit confused by their comments about different types of pain.

Now after teaching for over 20 years, it makes a lot of sense to me, as I am now inhabiting my body with levels of pain issues. Oh, if I don’t move, move move, it is big time hurt city. I still hurt, but pain levels between 7-9, now regularly sit between 1-3. That is significant to me.

What about you?

I invite you to come to my #freeyoga class held on #mindbody sponsored by the Veterans Yoga Project I’ve got the link below. Be sure to sign up at least an hour maybe two before your first class, so that you get the verification email in time to do class. You’ll get an email link to come into the class 30 minutes prior.

Gentle Yoga for Low Back Pain is what I teach. 60 minutes beginner-level class.

Yeah, you don’t have to bend like a pretzel or touch your toes to get massive health benefits from a regular yoga practice.
