What is Yoga Nidra and how can it benefit me?
When I was first introduced to yoga nidra, I had no idea what it was, although I was very intrigued by it right from the get go. I will admit that the first few sessions I went so deep into relaxation that I must have slept through part of it, yet I knew there was something wonderful and magical about it. After that first class I felt so relaxed and at peace. I wanted more of that feeling. I was hooked, and therefore drawn to explore it, dig deep into it, find out what it was that seemed to be transforming my life, one session at a time. So I practiced more, did my darndest to stay conscious throughout the full guided meditations, and see what it was that took me into this deep relaxed mode. What happened when I got so relaxed I was able to explore my subconscious level; how was this Nidra re-shaping the way I see the world, providing this deep sense of relaxation, this slower heart rate (as low as 45 bpm)...just the whole package...how was this happening?
I was so intrigued that I signed up for training on this type of guided meditation to learn more about the process. I have discovered a whole new lens with which I see things, especially within myself, which in turn affects the way I see and interact with the world around me. What a gift it's been for me, this discovery of YN (yoga nidra) and my true self. I now feel compelled to share this gift with others, anyone wanting to enjoy the experience it offers them, individually.
YN is used in some of the following fields:
Relaxation: YN is the best, most affordable, and most permanent method of inducing deep relaxation of the entire human structure and personality.
Sleep: YN induces and imroves sleeping patterns. It is a non-chemical tranquilizer that quickly removes insomnia.
Meditation: It is used as a meditation technique, to open the potential of the mind and awaken the faculty of intuition.
Physio-psychological rejuvination of the entire human organism: The physical, mental and pranic levels are deeply recharged.
Psychosomatic Illnesses: diabetes II, hypertension, migrane, asthma, ulcers, digestive disorders and skin diseases arise from tensions created in the mind that later manifest as physical symptoms.
These are just a few of the ways YN can be used to benefit our human experience. If you're as intrigued by this as I was, come out and join me for a guided meditation session. See how you experience it, how you feel, and determine if this is something that resonates within you. I will be offering YN sessions at Peg City Yoga starting in January; Tuesday evenings at 8:45pm. While this may seen a bit late in the day, its perfect for enticing you into sleep. Head straight home from the practice and crawl into bed. You will quite likely experience the best sleep you've had an awhile! Keep an eye out for more offerings: different evenings/times/ and venues TBA soon.
