What is Yoga Nidra?
Yoga Nidra is a meditation practice that uses the biological process of sleep, that your body already knows how to do, to access the deepest state of consciousness where it can attain deep restoration and healing on all levels of your body and being. You will experience a unique combination of awareness and profound relaxation. As you practice, you become immersed in the healing rhythms of your mind’s Alpha and Theta brain wave states where the body naturally can restore itself.
Yoga Nidra has the power to balance the sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous systems to counteract stress and remain calm and relaxed. Yoga Nidra requires neither years of practice nor intellectual understanding. You will be guided through the mediation so it’s easy for everyone irrespective of age or physical strength. With practice it gives you the capacity to move through life with greater ease and peace no matter what the external circumstances are.
Yoga Nidra is Highly Affective in Healing from Trauma
Trauma has a big impact on mental health, sleep, and physical health. While trauma disorders require professional treatment, Yoga Nidra is a useful supplement. It can help you relax, heal and get a better night’s sleep.
Multiple studies including a study performed by the Department of Defense with traumatized war veterans have shown that the practice of Yoga Nidra significantly reduces anxiety, anger and emotional outbursts and increases self-awareness, a sense of peace and relaxation. Similar studies have found that Yoga Nidra is beneficial for managing depression, anxiety, substance abuse, grief and insomnia.
