Yoga Nidra is an ancient yogic process of meditation and deep relaxation that can be practised for many reasons: to induce profound relaxation in your body and mind; eliminate stress; overcome insomnia; solve personal and interpersonal problems; resolve trauma; and neutralise and overcome anxiety, fear, anger, and depression.
During Yoga Nidra you will enter a profound state of receptive relaxation, all the while remaining totally aware and alert throughout its process.
This allows you the freedom to access higher levels of consciousness with the ability to allow your inner intelligence to naturally reveal solutions to life’s problems.
It is quite common for spontaneous physical and psychological shifts to occur during Yoga Nidra as negative conditioning is dissolved simply by becoming aware of it.
Other benefits include:
• improves the quality of your sleep and the amount of your sleep
• eases chronic pain
• soothes your autonomic nervous system
• enhances your mental focus and attention span
• improves your creativity and whole-brain functioning
• gives you more ease and peace of mind in daily life
• helps create new neural pathways in your brain leading to healthy habits & routines
Since my teens, I have been curious about “what makes people tick”.
I took up meditation in my mid-twenties and started facilitating support groups based on the study and integration of Universal Principles in my early thirties.
I have studied and practised a wide range of mindbody & stress management techniques over the years and had my own private practice mainly to demonstrate and impart these ideas to others.
I started teaching Yoga Nidra as part of a Stress Management course I was running at Bromley College of Further Education, and it out of all those I taught, it proved to be the most popular form of meditation.
