Yoga Nidra

About Yoga Nidra

Yoga Nidra is considered to be the state in which the Gods reside. This is because the goal of Yoga Nidra is to attain complete relaxation while maintaining consciousness. The ability to do this allows for our deepest levels of creativity and healing energies to come to the surface. One session of yoga nidra is equal to approximately 3 hours of sleep in its ability to rejuvenate. Most of us when we sleep never really relax and truly let go into the deepest recesses of our unconscious and our connection to creation. This is what yoga nidra provides, the deep connection to our unconscious that leads to wholeness.

The Practice

During a yoga nidra session you simply lie down and follow the instruction given without strain or undue effort. What comes easily, you do, what doesn't, you let it pass. You will also be asked to choose a resolution, something that you would like to develop in your life that will have a positive effect on your path to healing. The seed of this intention when spoken at the beginning and the end of yoga nidra gets planted deep into the unconscious where it motivates changes in behaviour and lifestyle situations that support your deepest heart's desire for healing to unfold. Yoga nidra is suitable for all, and only requires the inner desire to discover relaxation and wholeness. Yoga nidra is suitable for all levels and only requires the inner desire to discover relaxation and wholeness.
