Yoga Nidra

Today, I am in need of Yoga Nidra. That is the type of yoga that falls into restorative. The yoga is from 30 minutes up to 60 minutes long; where the instructor talks the student through a guided exploration that basically turns into “awakened” sleeping.

I’ve trained in Yoga Nidra and find it remarkable that not many studios offer such a practice. The beauty of this practice is that the day melts away and there are no urgent movements, there are no poses, other than Savasana, to get into. Once you have settled into your full relaxation pose, you are ready to begin your practice. Slowing down the day, centering the breath and then listening to the body, Yoga Nidra is unlike any other experience in the various types of yoga and has been documented as emitting the same brain waves as deep sleep. My little one gets into it too!
