A systematic form of guided relaxation that typically is done for 30 to 40 minutes at a time, Yoga Nidra translates into “yogic sleep” or “dynamic sleep”. The Yoga Nidra practice allows the body to deeply relax while the mind stays inwardly alert. It has been referred to as “reaching the border between waking and sleeping states.”
This practice will be taught in a lying down position made comfortable with a pillow under the head, a blanket over the body, perhaps a bolster under your knees and an eye covering.
You will be guided through several stages. You will start by connecting to your heartfelt desire, setting an intention and finding your inner resource. Then you learn to focus your awareness on your breath, bodily sensations, emotions, and thoughts while being guided through a full body scan. Throughout, you are encouraged to tap into an underlying sense of peace that is always present and to cultivate “witness consciousness,” observing and welcoming whatever is present without getting caught up in it.
Yoga nidra allows us to reach the most profound level of relaxation possible. It provides a doorway to a place where we can see ourselves and the world in the most positive light.
