What is Yoga Nidra?
Yoga Nidra is a technique designed to facilitate the relaxation necessary to explore the deepr layers the self. When the body feels safe, supported and relaxed we can navigate the various layers of emotions, thoughts and beleifs that shape our reality. There are many different techniques however waht they all share is the creation of an intention (sankalpha) and a gradual progression inwards from physical sensations through the “being” state of unchanging awareness.
Why Yoga Nidra?
As we navigate the ever-increasing pace of our lives today, many of us find ourselves in a cycle of depletion and exhaustion. We move in a culture that rewards us for multitasking and encourages us to obtain value through external means. More and more we are defined by a yard stick that measures our success in units of money, body image, and power. Sadly these things are quite like eating white bread. They look delicious, even taste sensational slathered in butter … but ultimately there is nothing really in there to provide nourishment for the long haul. There is just enough filler to keep us alive and going back for more. Yoga Nidra opens the door to another possibility; a sanctuary, a refuge, an oasis of stillness that allows us to truly rest. Through an understanding of this practice we become aware of the patterns that shape our belief system. Through awareness we find the capacity for change. In our willingness to change we create a better way to live.
