Winter Yoga Nidra for Deep Rest, Thursday 1/13
This Yoga Nidra will be a journey of deep rest and relaxation. Imagine yourself cocooned in the coziest blanket feeling protected, warm and safe in our sweet, candle lit studio. This Nidra will journey into the deep midwinter to evoke feelings of peace and quiet for the mind using beautiful spoken imagery.
Yoga Nidra is a form of guided meditation also known as “yogic sleep” or “effortless relaxation”. It is practiced lying down, to draw attention inwards.
We learn to surf between the states of wakefulness and sleep, where our body finds its natural state of equilibrium (homeostasis) – the breath balances and becomes quiet, unconscious and conscious aspects of the mind reveal themselves, and we fall into an innate state of deep, blissful awareness.
As we rest here, we can turn our attention easily and effortlessly to the very nature of awareness and consciousness. We start to experience the ‘deeper’ features of yogic teachings that previously we perhaps considered intangible, such as feeling our interconnected wholeness and becoming aware of our true, unified nature – expansive, inclusive, and deeply restful.
Yoga Nidra takes us effortlessly into a state of harmonious, restful being. From here, we can be healed, restored and awakened to our deepest, all-knowing, all-welcoming self. This practice has been scientifically proven to support mental health and aid symptoms of PTSD, Anxiety, insomnia and stress. 45 minutes of Nidra is equivalent to 3 hours of sleep. Deeply healing.
