Yoga Nidra is also termed "yogic sleep". Engaging in Yoga Nidra two times a day can have a tremendous effect on your health. There are profound benefits for people recovering from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder or for anyone who wants to live in a calmer state of mind. By engaging in a regular practice of Yoga Nidra much like meditation, the participant can learn to identify and witness their own harmful thoughts instead of internalizing them. Every time we emerge from Yoga Nidra, we are less engaged by the drama of our racing thoughts for Yoga Nidra calms the incessant inner noise. It is even shown to heal the effects of toxic thinking from the past.
Yoga Nidra is the release of all doing, and in the absence of doing you find you are already whole. You don't need to do or be anything to be loved and accepted. Reconnect with your inner self and with your higher power in this deep state of rest enabling you to cope with the stressful demands of life with more grace and ease. In addition, studies show that Yoga Nidra reduces cortisol in the system which is associated with accelerated aging. Entering into the delta brainwave state is the most recuperative state for the body to heal itself.
Yoga Nidra is completely safe. If you have worries, listen to one of the recordings before proceeding.
Below are some Yoga Nidra sessions that I've recorded. You don't have to do anything. You need only to listen to my voice, but don't even need to focus too hard. Just be aware of my voice and try to avoid falling asleep, unless of course you are enjoying the sleep meditation.
