Yoga Nidra is both a practice and a state of being. This profoundly healing practice seeks to unwind the three-fold tensions: muscular, mental, and emotional. Yoga Nidra is a deep guided meditation in which the body is guided to let go and relax deeply, while the mind retains a trace of awareness. Experienced on different levels, this practice can focus on relieving stress, healing, cultivating capacity to transform, or touching into the inner light of consciousness.
Yoga Nidra is an effective tool for:
Cultivating better sleep
Learning to calm and rest the body and nervous system more effectively
Sowing the seeds of change
Harmonizing the deep unconscious
Awakening inner potential
Restorative yoga makes use of props to create positions of ease and comfort that facilitate relaxation and health. The beauty of restorative Yoga is that you are fully supported by a variety of props, so you can fully relax and release in the asana (posture). A typical restorative posture is held anywhere from five to twenty minutes to allow the body to fully relax into the support of the props, and bring the mind to a quiet relaxation.
Because the body and mind relax, literally becoming softer, we also create space to get in touch again with our natural qualities of compassion and understanding of others and self.
Restorative Yoga benefits, summarized:
Deeply relaxes the body
Stills the mind
Improves capacity for healing and balancing
Balances the nervous system
Boosts the immune system
Develops qualities of compassion and understanding toward others and self
Enhances mood states
