Yoga Nidra, or “Yogic Sleep”, is a state between sleeping and waking. You will be guided on a systematic journey to the deep, quiet layers of the self. Practitioners can experience a deep state of relaxation while maintaining “a trace of awareness”. Yoga Nidra calms the mind, restores the nervous system, and increases resilience.
This class will begin with gentle yoga postures to help you transition from the external world toward the more inner landscape. The second half of the class is a guided relaxation/meditation done lying down in a comfortable reclining position.
Aside from being relaxing, restorative and restful, studies have shown that Yoga Nidra can:
- Ease insomnia
- Decrease anxiety
- Alleviate stress
- Reduce PTSD
- Decrease chronic pain
- Heighten awareness and focus
- Transform negative habits, behaviors and ways of thinking
- Foster feelings of peace, calm, and clarity
