A studio for everybody and every body
Yoga Nidra is translated as “Yogic Sleep” and is a meditation technique rarely taught in the West.
Reclining in a comfortable restorative posture, students in this class are led through a guided meditation that involves rotating awareness through various points in the body which enables profoundly deep states of consciousness to be reached. Through this process, the tensions that plague the physical, mental, and emotional bodies are purged, vital energy is renewed, and chronic habitual patterns are transcended…leaving the Yoga Nidra practitioner reinvigorated and in a state of deep peace and ease.
“Be still and know that I am God.” Psalm 46:10
The body probably has never before felt this level of restoration and relaxation — while awake — due to the judgmental, busy thoughts that often dominate our way of thinking. Yoga Nidra, however, is the state of being where true peace is cultivated from within, and it is in this state where healing of the body takes place spontaneously and the life force energy is free to flow. This process takes you to the deepest level of rest, physically and mentally.
Yoga Nidra awakens this inner healer by activating the pineal gland which, in turn, increases the production of melatonin.
This natural hormone helps:
- eliminate stress
- induce restful sleep
- prevent premature aging
- reduce high blood pressure
- improve the immune system.
