What is Yoga Nidra Meditation?

Yoga Nidra = a Yogic Nap

image2

Yoga nidra (meaning "yogic sleep" in Sanskrit) is a sleep based meditation practice that takes you on a journey through the different layers or "koshas' of your body using techniques such as body scans, breath work, visualizations, and more. In yoga nidra we are harnessing the healing power of deep sleep while maintaining a trace of awareness.


During yoga nidra, you appear to be asleep but really you are in a state between wakefulness and sleep where the mind is very receptive and open.  In this state, your brain wave patterns progressively slow down, just like when you fall asleep. 


Part of why yoga nidra is so easy to practice is because it is based on something you body already knows how to do so well- SLEEP.  



Yoga Nidra is Accessible to Everyone-- No Yoga or Meditation Experience Required!

Yoga nidra is a practice of non-doing.  In today's busy world of go, go, go, it is time to rediscover rest.  You don't have to do anything in yoga nidra but lie down, relax, and listen to the teacher's voice. No yoga experience is required and anyone can do it, regardless of physical ability. Even first time meditators can enter into a state of deep relaxation through yoga nidra.


There is no right or wrong way to practice yoga nidra.  Yoga nidra takes you on a personal, inward journey so everyone's experience is different. 


Yoga nidra meets you where you are depending on how you are feeling that particular day or your level of experience with the practice. All you have to do is lie down and listen. yoga nidra meditation guided meditation Atlanta

Benefits of Yoga Nidra Meditation--NAP + MEDITATION

image4

 As my teacher Karen Brody says, "Yoga nidra is rest medicine." When you practice yoga nidra, you are getting all the benefits of a nap plus the benefits of a deep meditation practice. Relearn how to deeply rest and break the cycle of constant "doing" that can lead to exhaustion.


Among its many benefits, yoga nidra may help you:

* reduce physical stress

* finally feel rested

* resolve sleep issues

* heighten your creativity and focus 

* manifest your intentions

* release emotional blockages 

* balance your energy centers 

* explore your inner world

* rediscover your true self

DEEP REST YOGA JUNE/JUlY/AUGUST 2019 CHARITY= PROJECT CHIMPS

All proceeds from Deep Rest Yoga Thursday classes in June, July, and August 2019 will be donated to Project Chimps, located in north Georgia.  


Did you know that after a decades-long fight to end the use of chimpanzees in laboratory research, all chimps, both wild and captive, in the United States were listed as endangered under the Endangered Species Act (ESA) on September 14, 2015? As a result, hundreds of chimpanzees in private research institutions needed to find forever homes


Project Chimps is the newest chimpanzee sanctuary in the United States and was founded to provide lifelong exemplary care to more than 200 former research chimpanzees at its sanctuary on 236 acres of forested land in the Blue Ridge Mountains of north Georgia. Today, Project Chimps is home to 59 chimpanzees and they are working on raising money to bring 150 more to their permanent sanctuary.
