Yoga Nidra offers an easy way to be in harmony with our own powerful energy. When we tune in to our own energy, we find the power and grace to release what no longer serves us.
Perhaps you want to let go of something physical: the ache of a loss or life change, or negative mental chatter. Or maybe you simply crave the experience of deep peace and rest. This deeply meditative practice invites an effortless release of patterns of tension in body and mind, leaving you with the feeling of freedom.
What’s even better than a nap when you’re tired and stressed? Yoga Nidra! One hour of this powerful meditative “yogic sleep” practice is worth FOUR hours of sleep! Take a moment to step out of the busy-ness of your life for an effortless practice that supports the body’s ability to heal and recharge at a deep level. In a place between the waking and sleeping states, you can let go of tension on the physical, emotional and mental levels, and emerge feeling deeply rejuvenated.
Research conducted at universities and medical centers (including Stanford University and Walter Reed Army Medical Center) shows that regular practice of yoga nidra can prevent and reverse numerous ailments and diseases, including strengthening the immune system, regulating blood pressure, balancing the nervous and endocrine systems, and aid for insomnia.
