What is Yoga Nidra?
Yoga Nidra is a technique designed to facilitate the relaxation necessary to explore the deepr layers the self. As humans we need to be in the right state in order to non-judgementally navigate and explore the multi-dimensional and complex terrain of sensation, emotions, thoughts, and belief systems and unconscious narratives which shape our perception and reality. When we feel safe, supported, and content for now, we might begin to gently open towards deeper experiences, and healing. Conscious opening and closing allow us to feel secure as we progress from the shoreline, wading deeper into the waters of the subconscious.
There are many different techniques however what they all share is the creation of an intention; deep hearts desire (sankalpha) and a gradual progression inwards from physical sensations through the “being” state of expansive awareness.
Why Yoga Nidra?
As we navigate the ever-increasing pace of our lives today we have become a society of human doings versus human beings with many of us find ourselves in a cycle of busy, depletion, and exhaustion. We exist in a culture that often rewards us for multitasking, productivity, and performance over attention and care, and encourages us to obtain value through chasing external means of value and consumption. More and more we are defined by a yardstick that measures our success in units of capital such as money, body size and shape, and power. Yoga Nidra opens the door to another possibility; a sanctuary, a refuge, an oasis of stillness that allows us to truly rest and connect with our deeper heart’s desire and possibility. Through an understanding of this practice, we become aware of the patterns that shape our belief systems and unconscious habit loops (adapted ways of relating to our moment-to-moment experiences). Through awareness, we find the capacity for change.
