“What is Yoga Nidra”
Yoga nidra is a great treasure, a potent meditative resource for healing, insight, and empowerment. It’s a state of consciousness in which we are invited to re-encounter the essential truth of who we really are. Yoga nidra provides us with the opportunity to experience deep freedom. It welcomes us all home to ourselves.
There are a number of different approaches to yoga nidra currently in use around the world, and they are all valuable, effective means to reconnect to this direct experience of truth and freedom. I feel passionately that yoga nidra is one of the most vital forms of twenty-first century medicine and spiritual practice, and I am committed to sharing it as widely as possible.
Yoga Nidra is practiced entirely in the position of savasana that allows a practitioner to remain in complete physical stillness for 45 minutes. The practitioner is then guided into complete physical and mental relaxation. It is estimated that 45 minutes of Yoga Nidra provides the equivalent restful quality of 3-4 hours of sleep. This is because Yoga Nidra is a deep meditative practice that invokes alpha, theta and delta waves in the brain.
These states are reached by gentle guidance through the 5 layers (Koshas) of our being. Annamaya (Physical Body), Pranamaya (Energetic Body), Manomaya (Mental Body), Vijnanamaya (Astral Body) and Anandamaya (Bliss Body).
It is through bringing awareness into these layers that we can access the subconscious and unconscious as well as the entire subtle body. In turn it is also where we can begin to create positive change to all levels of our being.
