Yoga Nidra …
… is when a person accomplishes expanded awareness in a state of deep relaxation. Practiced by ancient gurus, sages, yogis, and the like for thousand of years. It is mentioned in classical texts such as the Hatha Yoga Pradipika, the Puranas, the Devi Bhagvat, and even the Yoga Tadavali.
The process to reach the state of Yoga Nidra begins with a guided meditation. Little by little, like the layers of an onion, you are slowly lead to the state of consciousness between being awake and being asleep. All the while keeping awareness and wakefulness, you will stay on that edge right before falling asleep.
During the state of Yoga Nidra, you will then be guided to set a powerful intention for healing (aka a sankalpa). This intention penetrates deep into both the conscious and subconscious mind providing your physical, emotional, and spiritual body to let go of any energetic blockages allowing your natural life force to once again move freely as intended.
Yoga Nidra has been proven to help with ailments such as:
ADD / ADHD
Hypertension & Post Heart Attack care
Autoimmune Diseases (i.e. Lyme disease, Chronic fatigue syndrome, Fibromyalgia, Rheumatoid arthritis, Systemic Lupus, etc.)
Pain cause by trauma (physical or emotional)
End of Life Transition / Hospice
And much more
