Yoga Nidra is a practice of deep relaxation. It is said that 40 minutes of yoga nidra can be equivalent to 3 hours of sleep. When we utilize practices like yoga nidra that can support us in deeply restoring and relaxing we have more energy to be awake and aware during our lives. Upon waking from Yoga Nidra, you will feel refreshed and deeply connected to your wellspring of life source within.
The reasons in this moment are countless.
Yoga Nidra is a priceless gift for your nervous system. As a society, many of us live on the edge of “fight or flight”. The practice of yoga nidra helps to soothe the frayed edges of a culture and lifestyles that are constantly demanding more of us.
Yoga Nidra invites us into a deep remembering of who you are. We are welcomed back home into our bodies and into our essence. After practicing yoga nidra, you emerge from this sacred rest ready to step back into your life from a place tethered to soul.
If you have trouble sleeping, practicing yoga nidra before bed can support your body to prepare for rest. In a world that thrives on fear and a faster and faster pace, yoga nidra is a radical act of self-care and self-love.
To prepare for yoga nidra:
– Create a Yoga Nidra Nest – A place where you can lay down and be in maximum comfort.
