Do you have trouble with traditional meditation?
Finding it hard to quiet your mind of the "to-do list" or "shouldn't have said that" thoughts?
Yoga Nidra is a sleep based guided meditation that can help with that. In a Yoga Nidra session you will be guided through a sleep meditation, consisting of a series of simple instructions including breathing ques, visual imagery and a scan of the body. This will allow your mind to quiet down and your body to ease into a deep state of relaxation. Focusing the mind on breath and bodily sensations prevents that "to-do list" from seeping in and occupying your mind.
Within a short time the brain will switch from beta to alpha waves, signaling the transition from activity to relaxation. You will worry less about what your body looks like and investigate more about what your body feels like. Yoga Nidra is designed to take you inside your body and actually help you feel what’s going on in there, physically and mentally, which can enable deep healing of emotional and traumatic energies that have been stuck there. I AM Yoga Nidra is designed to bring you to that safe space of healing and restoration.
There’s a guide, a Guru that knows more than all the healers in the world, and this Guru is found within the center of your own Heart. And when you can get quiet, be still and truly listen, that is more powerful and more beautiful than anything anyone else can ever give you.
