More now than ever, we may feel our bodies, minds, and spirits calling out to us. With chronic stress on the rise at a groundbreaking rate, the effects can be catastrophic on our physical body, on our mental and emotional clarity, and on our openness to the Divine. We all long to reach a state of deep relaxation, and most of us need it, whether we are aware of it or not. Sometimes, shavasana just isn’t enough. An excellent addition to any class, Yoga Nidra can allow us to reach a state of inner bliss and integration that is indescribable.
What is Yoga Nidra?
Yoga Nidra, or Yogic Sleep, is an ancient form of meditation in which you will journey to the deepest levels of relaxation, and still remain fully awake. In this deeply relaxed state, an integration of spirit and mind allows you to tap into both your subconscious and higher frequencies of consciousness which are often inacessible due to many things, including stress, anxiety, and depression. In a state of Yoga Nidra, you are able to move past these disturbances of the mind and actualize a higher state of consciousness in which you are at complete peace.
Why is Yoga Nidra Beneficial to me and/or my clients?
On a biological level, Yoga Nidra has been proven to induce deep relaxation of the nervous system, lower blood pressure, reduce stress hormones, and slow down the heart rate. Further, focusing on the Third Eye activates the pineal gland, releasing melatonin which has been proven to boost the immune system, lead to more restful sleep, and reduce stress, among other benefits.
On a psychological level, Yoga Nidra can be used as a tool to release both conscious and subconscious patterns you may hold that are of no benefit to your wellness. When you reach a state of Yoga Nidra, you are able to look at your habits from a higher and more objective place of knowing. This allows you to answer questions and rework your life in ways you may not have been able to otherwise.
Here at Santosha Yoga, we are offering a teacher training for anyone who’d like to incorporate the ancient art of Yoga Nidra into their practice. Among many other settings, Yoga Nidra can be incorporated into yoga classes, acupuncture and massage therapy sessions, the psychotherapeutic process, and most importantly into your everyday life as a way to relax and find clarity.
