yoga nidra, a practice of deep rest & inner peace
true healing occurs when the mind / body is able to rest
Yoga Nidra is an ancient practice of meditation that can lead to inner freedom.
It employs several practices which work at the physical, energetic, mental and
emotional levels, allowing us to reconnect with our deepest self. These practices
help to harmonize the two hemispheres of the brain and the two aspects of the
autonomic nervous system (sympathetic and parasympathetic).
When practiced regularly, Yoga Nidra can:
- Induce deep relaxation at all levels: physical, mental and emotional
- Change the patterning of the mind along positive lines
- Improve the quality of sleep
- Lessen health issues linked to stress such as insomnia, hypertension, depression
No prior yoga or meditation experience is necessary.
