Yoga Nidra, a Sanskrit term meaning "yogic sleep" is a combination of deep relaxation and mindful awareness.
It's an ancient technique where the practitioner enters deep states of conscious relaxation, turning the awareness inward and returning to the present moment.
In yoga nidra we will be laying down, listening to a set of instructions, combining small gestures such as making fists and releasing, with light breathwork such as in meditation.
This space of deep relaxation allows our senses, intellect, and mind to relax. We become free from the concepts of time, space and reason. When this happens, brain activity reduces and the body goes in the healing state.
The body functions become minimal, metabolism slows down and the hormonal function increases, therefore allowing the body to get the chance to begin the repair activity and expel the toxins out of the system.
Due to this, the body starts to conserve energy. This process removes fatigue and rejuvenates the brain. As the body enters a healing state, you can clear up the toxins at a cellular level, refresh the mind and remove baggage from the subconscious.
After the session, you will refreshed and energized as if you have slept for many hours.
If you have your own Yoga mat please bring along, otherwise we have a few available for use!
