About the event
Yoga Nidra (sometimes called yogic sleep) is a very old form of yoga that allows one to achieve a state “being” between waking and sleeping, somewhat like the place that feels like "going-to-sleep”. In this state the body is completely relaxed and by following verbal guidance you will become increasingly aware of your inner world, your “body mind”.
When practicing Yoga Nidra you remain in a state of light “withdrawn awareness” as the sense of hearing stays connected and responsive to the instructions.
Yoga Nidra is among the deepest possible states of relaxation while still maintaining full consciousness. The practice is easy to do, with the only possible negative outcome being falling to sleep!
The practice of Yoga Nidra has been found to reduce tension and anxiety, including headache, feelings of ‘ungroundedness’, tremulousness, sweating and abdominal discomforts, to name just a few. At the root of all healing is our core relationship with self. Practicing Yoga Nidra deepens and strengthens this relationship and increases our self awareness on all levels.
