Yoga Nidra or Yogic Sleep is a yielding and nourishing practice, which uses a combination of breath and visualisation techniques to invite you to connect with your body, mind and emotions and to rest in a very deep state of relaxation.
It is so rejuvenating, that one hour of Yoga Nidra is said to equate to almost five hours sleep.
It also induces the healing rhythms of the alpha state, where our minds are more receptive, creative, and less critical, bringing a sense of calm and equanimity to our inner and outer worlds.
Kamini Desai, Director of Education at Amrit Yoga Institute, explains:
How is Yoga Nidra practiced?
Lying comfortably on your back with plenty of cushions and blankets to make sure you stay warm. You may also wish to cover your eyes. If you have lower back pain, a bolster or cushion under your thighs is recommended.
Once you are comfortable, you simply let go and listen to the sound of my voice as I guide you on a deeply relaxing journey through your body and mind.
Yoga Nidra can be experienced at my Day Retreats
