In the word of Richard Miller, (clinical psychologist, author, researcher and yogic scholar) "Yoga Nidra will lead you to experience profound relaxation, the release of chronic stress, restful sleep, resolutions to many of your life conundrums, and a greater sense of harmony in your daily life and relationships."
During the practice of Yoga Nidra (translated as "Yogic Sleep") you nourish your TRUE self, stimulate your parasympathetic nervous system which helps you release tensions in your body and mind and find equanimity.
I discovered Yoga Nidra many years ago as I was diving deeper into the world of Yoga. As I am usually a "doer", the idea of a motionless practice has always brought me a little discomfort. Sitting there (or in this case laying) with myself, trying to shush away my thoughts usually made them get louder, so I was pleasantly surprised when I was able to listen to a guided meditation where my thoughts, while still being present, seemed further into the distance. I didn't feel them affecting me as much anymore. I was able to find peace within me and release my worries, anxious thoughts and tensions from the first time I practiced Yoga Nidra. I felt so much lighter, the world around me seemed more vibrant, lights brighter, everything was sharper, BUT what I noticed the most was that I was at peace...What a feeling!
It took me a few more years after becoming a teacher to realize that I could share this practice with all of you. I made me feel so good inside that I couldn't just keep it to myself, I had to share.
If you want to experience the practice of Yoga Nidra with me, I am offering workshops year long.
