About Yoga Nidra
Yoga Nidra is also known as “yogic sleep” because it translates to sleep meditation - a practice of conscious relaxation designed to release tension in our body, mind and energy field. Yoga Nidra draws our attention inwards, where we learn to find the balance between wakefulness and sleep. It is usually practised laying down with a teacher guiding the session.
In a Yoga Nidra class, we are guided into a state of deep relaxation where we can turn our attention easily and effortlessly to the very nature of awareness and consciousness. By focusing our attention on different parts of our body and relieving them of tension, we are reconnecting with our wholeness and becoming aware of our true, unified nature as we come to a peaceful, restful state of being. Yoga Nidra is a method of transferring consciousness from our outer environment to our unconscious mind.
We remain at a waking level of awareness while focusing on the brain and allowing thoughts to come and go, focusing more deeply on ourselves and letting go of any other distractions. Yoga Nidra clears accumulated impressions in the mental body which are clogging the system, after which our mental body is better able to operate and focus more on the intake of new information.
