(Yogic Sleep)

Yoga Nidra Intro Workshop

Yoga Nidra is the state of conscious deep sleep. This is a restorative form of guided meditation that facilitates entry into this state. It is where the mind remains conscious while the body experiences the effects of deep sleep. For most people, Yoga Nidra is practiced lying down, however, you can take any position that allows your body to feel comfortable and supported (this is important for those who experience pain).

Yoga Nidra is that moment where your busy mind surrenders and “falls” asleep each night, except that in Yoga Nidra, the mind stays aware and witnesses the body sleeping. 

Yoga Nidra refers to the sleep of the yogis—conscious deep sleep.

Why Yoga Nidra?

Rollie discovered Yoga Nidra a few years ago at the suggestion of a colleague. She felt that Yoga Nidra would be a great addition to the modalities that she offered at the time. She soon discovered that her stress levels quickly began to lower. This practice had such a profound impact on many of her clients that she began to offer Yoga Nidra virtually during another lockdown.

Stress is not something visually but it is something that you can feel in your entire body, mind and emotion. And when we leave stress untreated, it becomes the #1 contributor to disease.

There are many ways that we cope with stress rather than release it by watching too much TV, eating too much food, and some turn to other substances such as alcohol or drugs. All of these are temporary fixes that don’t do anything to help release tension or even address the root causes of your stress.

Yoga Nidra helps you reach a state of conscious rest that’s entered through restorative meditation practice. This state encourages the body and mind to release the effects of stress. It helps you unwind and restore the right to the core of your nervous system.

All you need to do is lay down on your back and listen. If laying down isn’t an option, you can enjoy the benefits of Yoga Nidra in whatever position makes you most comfortable. It’s really that simple.
