What is Yoga Nidra?
Yoga Nidra is like savasana (long deep relaxation)…only even longer and better! Nidra is a specific non-posture yogic technique of deep mindfulness and “meditation” for self-awareness and self-renewal...like taking yourself in for a tune-up! You will be laying down comfortably through the entire class – and maybe catching up on some much-needed physical and/or mental rest. As you do so, your instructor will guide you on a journey through your own body and into your deep self. To make it even better, the journey will be personalized by you. You will be gently encouraged to create a Sankalpa, your very own affirmation or intent. This powerful technique can have a positive and profound transformative impact on your everyday life.
Research on Yoga Nidra shows that it has some pretty amazing side-effects (see http://www.irest.us/ for details). It can be helpful for people dealing with everyday stress, chronic pain, anxiety, depression, chemical dependency, a frazzled nervous system, interrupted sleep or insomnia and even PTSD. What a great way to consciously choose to work “on the mat” in order to help yourself “off the mat.”
Please note: Props are available but, if you want, you can bring your own pillows, blankets and eye-coverings. Bring an extra $10 if you would like to purchase your own hand-made eye pillow.
