The more you practice Yoga Nidra the more you will enjoy calm, balanced emotions, a refreshed and energized body and a focused, concentrated mind.
What is Yoga Nidra?
Yoga Nidra is a sleep-based meditation designed to remove mental and emotional disturbance and rejuvenate the body. 45 minutes of Yoga Nidra is as restorative as 3 hours of sleep. Yoga Nidra is composed of a structured series of breath, body and awareness techniques which progressively drop you into deeper brainwaves where your thoughts effortlessly move further away from you. It is in this gap between the thoughts that you can effortlessly experience restful meditation. The body can deeply heal and rejuvenate, excess mental stimulation ceases and you awaken energized and focused. The more we rest as the silence behind the mind, the less we are disturbed by its unhelpful chatter—even while awake. Like meditation, Yoga Nidra can be used for medical, restorative and spiritual benefits alike to support one’s own goals and intentions.
What makes Yoga Nidra unique?
Most styles of meditation simply involve observing and allowing thoughts from a place of silent stillness. However, Yoga Nidra effects shifts from the state of meditation with the use of intention. In Yoga Nidra you are free from identification with deep-seated thought patterns that are constantly shaping and creating your mind, emotions, and even your body. With the use of intention you can consciously plant a seed to shape and create the state of your mind, emotions and body from the subtlest states of being very quickly and easily. It is like making changes to water versus ice.
This style of Yoga Nidra is called the Integrative Amrit Method (IAM). The big difference is the focus on energy as the point of entry into meditation. This released energy in the body increases the healing potential available during an IAM Yoga NidraTM and typically takes most practitioners into deeper states of meditation more quickly. That is why this style is often known as “the deep one”.
Techniques: Yoga Nidra is as ancient as Yoga postures. It was developed by ancient sages as a science and practice to reach ones optimal human and spiritual potential. Each technique of Yoga Nidra has specific benefits such as balancing blood sugar, clearing meridians and initiating the Relaxation Response. Furthermore, these techniques are structured to work from the gross to the subtle to lead you effortlessly to the subtlest dimensions of being. Each Yoga Nidra meditation is comprised of a series of body, breath, and awareness techniques. I have selected techniques that will support deep healing on a physical, mental, and spiritual level. Tap the description beside each meditative image to discover the techniques that are included.
Intentions: Yoga Nidra helps resolve external symptoms by going directly to the root of those symptoms. It uses the power of intention to help you make lasting changes in your life. When you are in the deepest state of relaxation, I will read an intention. An intention, or sankalpa, is similar to an affirmation, except it works at a subtle level, rather than engaging the conscious mind.
