Yoga Nidra ~ What is it?

Yoga Nidra

Yoga Nidra

Yoga Nidra is nothing weird, complicated or difficult! Purely an effective Deep Relaxation Class!

As Tanya Main, from The Yoga-Lounge explains:

Nidra is a Sanskrit word which can be translated as sleep, and yoga nidra is known as yogic sleep or sleep with awareness. It is a powerful technique of inducing complete and systematic relaxation on the physical, emotional and mental levels of our being. It uniquely unwinds the nervous system, which is the foundation of the body’s well-being. One can rejuvenate in a short period of time – 30 minutes of yoga nidra is as restful as two hours of conventional sleep! Practised lying down, it does not involve monument, just listening and relaxing, therefore it is suitable for any physical condition.

However, our practice may involve some gentle stretching before we settle for the relaxation.

Yoga nidra can be used as a preventive and curative therapy for stress-related diseases. Stress is a contributing factor in everything from backaches and insomnia to cancer and chronic fatigue syndrome. Some estimates say that stress is related to 40-80% of all doctor visits!

Unfortunately, most of us have illnesses or conditions brought on by stress or made worse by it. Yoga nidra has been successfully used in the management of many stress-related diseases and is proved helpful in both acute and chronic conditions.

Yoga nidra is also a successful therapy for psychological disturbances of all kinds, such as anxiety, depression, mood swings, etc. as it helps remove emotional imbalances, mental fatigue and tensions.

You can find Yoga Nidra Classes at The Yoga-Lounge with Tanya Main at her new studio.
