SOULFUL YOGA NIDRA MEDITATION

YOGA WORKSHOP

ABOUT THE WORKSHOP

Yoga Nidra or Yogic Sleep, is an immensely powerful ancient Indian meditative practice. As a form of systematic guided meditation, the senses are withdrawn to allow scanning the body and tap into a state of relaxed consciousness. The mind then begins to settles in a place between wakefulness and sleep through the subtle layers of your physical and energetic bodies providing with a sense of wholeness. 

Yoga Nidra practice helps to reduce the stress and tensions we carry with us in our everyday lives.

Yoga Nidra is very powerful method of resolving suppressed emotions, feelings, memories etc. as it offers a space to explore what you need in the moment.

Many chronic conditions and diseases of modern times can be managed by Yoga Nidra- like hypertension, migraine, ulcers, digestive disorders and asthma.

Incorporating this into your daily schedule is also said to relieve pressure from the coronary system.

The practice helps shift the balance of autonomic nervous toward the parasympathetic nervous system. The parasympathetic nervous system is what governs our relaxation response, commonly referred to as “rest and digest” response.

Yoga Nidra practice starts with setting a Sankalpa (an intention or positive affirmation) that can facilitate life altering changes in one’s thought patterns, relationships and achievements. A Sankalpa helps create new pious impressions in the mind and can move us to a state of clarity, aligned with our true nature, and connected to the wisdom of the divine.
