Great for any student level
Yoga Nidra is a powerful technique, in which you learn to relax consciously. The practice induces complete physical, mental and emotional relaxation. Even though the word nidra means sleep in Sanskrit, to experience true and absolute relaxation one must remain conscious.
The state of relaxation is reached by turning inwards, away from outer experiences. When the consciousness can be separated from external awareness and sleep, it becomes very powerful and can be applied in many ways, such as, developing memory, increasing knowledge and creativity, or finding our true nature. Yoga nidra had also been proven to help with hypertension, stress, insomnia, anxiety and headaches, plus a number of other common health issues.
Yoga nidra is practised in savasana, as scientific studies have shown that this is the position most conducive to relaxation, since it reduces sensory stimulation to the minimum. During this class we will start with some gentle yoga asana to prepare the body for the yoga nidra session.
