What Is Yoga Nidra?
Yoga Nidra is one of the most effective and least
explored techniques for unleashing the power of your unconscious mind.
The literal translation of Nidra is sleep. However, Yoga Nidra is a dynamic state, not the unconscious sleep of nighttime. While ordinary sleep can renew the body and refresh the mind, Yoga Nidra has the ability to alter your unconscious programming.
Yoga Nidra is a unique marriage of science and spirit, combining alert awareness and the deepest relaxation. It takes your brain to the alpha state and eventually the deeper theta wave state. Here, without effort or strain, you can to tap into your own source of intuition, creativity, health and abundance.
- This Integrative Relaxation Method requires neither years of practice, nor intellectual understanding to access its power. All that is required is a focus of
attention and an abiding trust in the process of
revelation through direct experience.
On the most basic level, Yoga Nidra relaxes, rejuvenates, and renews the physical body. It also empowers you to eliminate unconscious obstructions and energetic blocks that prevent you from living your life to the fullest. Through regular practice, Yoga Nidra enables you to effortlessly realize your intentions and achieve an integrated state in which your body moves toward self- healing. It works by immersing your brain in the healing rhythms of the alpha state to the deepest level of the delta state.
Here, you simultaneously access the power of the logical left brain and the intuitive right brain, and align your sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous systems to restore the body and mind to homeostasis. This is a state of oneness, where you tap into creative powers beyond the ego-mind and have access to healing on a physical, mental, and emotional plane. Scientific research has proven the benefits of Yoga Nidra on lowering stress and promoting overall health.
