Yoga Nidra with Sacred Sound Healing
January 28 @ 3:00 am
Yoga Nidra, also known as yogic sleep, is a meditation practice performed while the student is lying in their most comfortable position. You are guided into a space between wakefulness and sleeping. The waves of the mind are stilled, and brain waves progressively fall into less active states including delta waves which are the deepest and most restorative waves. The practice elicits both a psychological interruption and physiological restoration using a series of body, breath, and awareness techniques. Once the thinking and doing of the mind is removed, you can experience yourself in the purest vibration where you’re in direct communion with your higher self. It is also an intention-based practice where the student can implant an intention for themselves which is aimed at interrupting and redirecting thought cycles. Yoga Nidra is excellent for trauma recovery and those seeking to relax, restore and rejuvenate physically, mentally, and emotionally. Studies have shown that 45 minutes of Yoga Nidra is as restorative as three hours of REM sleep. Don’t forget your eye pillow!Sounds that may accompany this practice may include the use of crystal bowls, chimes, ocean drums and/or other gentle sound healing instruments. These vibrations assist the student in reaching a state of bliss and restoration.
