iRest ~ Yoga Nidra
Yoga Nidra is a harmonious sleep-like state that is reported during deep meditation. During the sublime 60-minute guided meditation classes, you’ll follow the voice of the narrator, Joy, while lying on your back in Savanasa (corpse pose). You will be guided through various breathing techniques, body part focuses and visualizations to help you enter the deepest possible state of relaxation while still maintaining full consciousness.
WHAT ARE SOME OF THE BENEFITS?
Yoga Nidra Meditation provides full relaxation of the nervous system; builds a healthy and strong mind; improves learning and concentration; restores emotional balance; and can contribute to relief from insomnia, PTSD, OCD, anxiety, depression and everyday stress. Ongoing research continues to prove its effectiveness.
WHO IS IT FOR?
Yoga Nidra is for everybody, regardless of age, fitness level or experience. This practice has vast appeal for anyone who struggles to let go. It’s also great for any student who has read about deep states of meditation or experienced it on their own, but has never been able to recreate it. NO EXPERIENCE NEEDED!!!
WHAT YOU’LL LEARN
Learn to quiet the mind and surf between the states of wakefulness and sleep. Through the practice, your brain waves will enter into alpha waves, which are very similar to a sleeping state. You will remain awake and conscious while slowly descending into a deep relaxed state.
