This guided deep relaxation practice is an evidence-based method from the ancient yoga tradition which supports the body’s natural ability to regenerate and heal, as well reduce stress. During yoga nidra, the body is in relaxed stillness while the mind remains alert. The practice fosters exploration of different areas of the mind, including consciousness, subconscious and super-consciousness through a guided process. During the experience, participants relax the body in traditional ‘savasana’ similar to the end of a yoga session, and are guided through a visualization and sensory journey by the facilitator.
Yoga nidra is a rejuvenating deep relaxation practice that can be ideal for students who require great stamina to stay up late and maintain focus to complete work. The ability to remain deeply relaxed while in a state of alert awareness has many therapeutic benefits for the mind and the body, and is one of the key tools in the development of self-awareness.
