Yoga Nidra/Yogic Sleep
Yoga Nidra, translated as “union with the deep unconscious, untethered state” is a guided lying down practice where space is held to heal and access the subtle flow of energy (prana). It is a conscious state of deep relaxation where the body is asleep yet the mind is awake in active trance and participation. This yogic practice reveals the power of stillness where you activate a specific healing process on an energetic level. One session is thought to be as healing and nourishing as 3 hours of deep sleep, yet there is clear guidance into healing particular aspects of your body, be it trauma, accidents, disease and physical conditions & imbalances, disorders, problems sleeping, addictions as well as healing consciousness, chakras, koshas, emotions, memories, routines, patterns or thought forms. It is perfect if you need a personal time to go deep, to be still and to be silent, healing the sympathetic nervous system.
Done lying down, please bring anything that makes you feel comfortable for the deep sleep state (personal blankets, pillows, shawls). We too have proper props and blankets for you to attain deep rest. This session will remove blockages and support deep healing. It will empower you to access the creative principle where potentiality and creating quick shifts is possible.
Very deep results often come about from these sessions. For this reason it is encouraged that you are silent after class and process the visions and sensations you had.
All levels and bodily conditions, ages and abilities are encouraged to come. Proper tools are available to make it accessible for anyone and no experience is necessary beyond a willingness to surrender and heal past impressions. The first 20 minutes will be an explanation of the affects of Yoga Nidra as well as it’s origin and 60 minutes will be a deep healing, lying down, where you are asked to no longer move once the visualization session begins. There will be a chance afterward to either continue sitting in silence or to comment on your experiences or ask questions.
