Yoga Nidra is the art of conscious, deep relaxation. It is a guided meditation that takes you on a journey through the layers of the physical and subtle bodies. Also known as ‘yoga sleep’, this old yoga practice can bring about deep healing, open doors of perception, promote creativity, restore energy, help with trauma and ptsd, and improve sleep and overall health.
Yoga Nidra has been shown to have physical, psychological and neurological benefits.
When practicing Yoga Nidra, the body is in a deep relaxed state, essentially asleep, but the mind is awake. As you enter a trans-like state, you can access the subtle flow of energy (prana,) and set intentions for whatever it is you need. Whether it’s addressing physical or emotional imbalances, addiction, patterns, or just personal time to be silent and still. It’s thought that 45 minutes of Yoga Nidra can feel as nourishing as 3-hours of deep sleep. The practice can help calm your sympathetic nervous system, leaving you with a sense of release, calm, and perhaps, bliss.
Susan’s formal training in Yoga Nidra was at the Sivananda Ashram with Dr. Marc Halpern, founder of the California College of Ayurveda and co-founder of the Ayurveda Medical Association. He spent 28 years healing himself with Nidra and offers a best selling c.d. and book on Yoga Nidra and Ayurveda.
