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

Questions? Complaints? Comments? Complements? Let me know.

If you have chronic neck or back pain…

If you carry stress in your neck and shoulders (not that any of us do…!)

If you wake up feeling listless and sore, wondering what is going on with your body anyway…

Discover the natural, safe, and enjoyable way to get relief from the above, as well as achieve the following benefits:

…cope better with stress, both daily annoyances and monumental life changes.

…feel happier and more energized.

…increase physical strength and flexibility, no matter what your age or physical condition.

…feel more creative – and like you have more time for your creative projects.

…feel relaxed and at-ease in your body and in your life.

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.
