Yoga Nidra (Deep Relaxation) Class 1
Experience deep relaxation arising from the subconscious release of tension on all levels to your being – physical, mental, emotional, and energetic – through this guided meditation practice of Yoga Nidra.
Describing Yoga Nidra is a bit like reading a description of honey before you’ve ever tasted honey. The actual taste experience is beyond words. However, from experience, understanding helps the mind relax and allows a much deeper experience.
This is an open level class and is 34 minutes in length.
Yoga Nidra is a most profound and natural state of meditation. Through the process of being guided into being conscious of different sensations throughout your body… and of opposing experiences, such as warmth & coolness, agitation & calmness, fear & equanimity, sorrow & joy, separation & oneness…You are invited to rotate your attention through these different changing sensations through pairs of opposites, until you embody these opposing experiences and sensations with neither attachment nor aversion, and with complete awareness.
The OUTCOME or Benefits to this deep meditative process is –
– feeling completely free of conflict,
– feeling radiantly joyful
– being totally relaxed and at the same time expansively Present
Many of us know of the fragile peace that’s easily disturbed by the onslaught of daily life – Yoga Nidra is a form of meditation that can assist you to cultivate or remember that space of pure awareness – that unshakable steadiness that exists in each one of us – and that is present in all circumstances and situations
Bearing in mind, that the true test of inner peace or consciousness is not in the meditation hall or studio, but in our daily life.
At the core of Yoga Nidra and all yoga and mediation practices – is NOT a dogma, but rather, a system that blends with many universal principles that are concerned with knowing one thing – WHO WE TRULY ARE.
