What is Yoga Nidra?
Yoga Nidra is a complete relaxation practice which translates (from Sanskrit) literally as yogic sleep. However,you won’t sleep as you know it! Rather, you’ll rest in a state of consciousness at the point between wakefulness and sleep. Lying comfortably in Savasana (Corpse Pose) you will be systematically guided to a place within yourself where you’ll experience deep physical, mental and emotional relaxation. Yoga Nidra could be considered the perfect antidote for busyness, stress, anxiety and other less desirable effects of living in the modern world.
Who Will Benefit From a Yoga Nidra Practice?
Anyone! The deeply relaxing experience that is Yoga Nidra can help you:
- feel rested, relaxed and rejuvenated;
- gain clarity of thought;
- feel more peaceful; and
- awaken creativity;
You’ll especially enjoy Yoga Nidra if:
- you have a ‘monkey’ mind, finding it hard to relax through other techniques;
- you find it hard to take time out for you; or
- your favourite pose is Savasana!
We Will be introducing Yoga Nidra into our time table form February 2017
Jo Maloney Will be Running our monthly Yoga nidra Class here at Yoga Sol in the heart of Ferny Hills. The last Friday in the month is the new time slot for this deeply Relaxing class. A great way to rest and de-Stress at the end of the month. Your class passes can be used for this amazing experience
This is a 1 hour class with 45 mins of Yoga Nidra.
Although 45 minutes sounds like a long time to be lying still, it does not feel that way when you are experiencing Yoga Nidra. If you are not comfortable lying in Savasana for an extended period, bolsters and blankets will be available to help support you and/or we can find an alternative position if that will be best for you.
