Yoga Nidra is a powerful, ancient form of guided meditation that induces relaxation & healing of the body, mind & spirit. It rests and renews & offers the opportunity to release accumulated tension. Yoga Nidra provides benefit to those suffering from: Chronic Pain, Fibromyalgia, Depression, Chronic Fatigue, Post Traumatic Stress, Insomnia, Anxiety, Restlessness, Digestive and stress-related disorders.
Most of us don’t get adequate rest, are over-stimulated & suffer from accumulated stress. The effects of this may be evident in difficulty concentrating, muscle aches/pains & feeling worn down. Over time, this can create illness & disease. Regular meditation can help restore your vital life energy, prevent disease, improve your mood and create more ease & peace of mind in daily life.
Treat yourself to this DIVINE SLEEP. Yoga Nidra guided meditation sessions last between 45-60 minutes and can be equivalent to 3 hrs of sleep. Plan to have pillows & blankets and dress in comfortable clothing. (This is a Guided Meditation, not an active Yoga class)
