What is Yoga Nidra Meditation?
Yoga Nidra is a practice done systematically and scientifically to temporarily disconnect the mind and senses from the outside world to bring one a deep sense of peace. You don’t have to know anything about yoga to enjoy this practice. It is a relaxation technique.
What will we do?
You should try and have a good night’s rest the evening before. We will be lying on the floor, so you will want to wear comfortable clothes, and bring a mat, pillow, and blanket and anything else you need for comfort. It is preferable not to eat beforehand; however a small light meal at least an hour or two before would be okay. The practice begins with a short lesson by Maheshwar pertaining to the process of interiority and indwelling. This will be relevant for anyone, from any background or any religion. We will do some breathing and chanting before lying down on our mats. After you make yourself completely comfortable, the group will be led through a systematic process of relaxing each part of our body. When the body is able to completely relax, it brings a deep healing and peacefulness to the mind and establishes harmony in all parts of our being.
What are the benefits?
Many of the illnesses that affect people today are directly caused by the tension so prevalent in the world we live in. These tensions are held in the body and mind, creating stress related disorders and draining our physical energy.
Yoga Nidra is a scientific way to eliminate root causes of negativity and disease. This systematic method of very deep resting/awareness is known to have powerful results which can heal body, mind, and emotions and help in the process of self-transformation. Healing benefits address hypertension, depression, insomnia, ulcers, digestive disorders and headaches, to name a few. Physical, mental, and emotional exhaustion can be brought under control. A new sense of awareness of the healing ability inherent in each of us becomes apparent. True peace can only be found within our own self, not in the outside world. Through this process you will find a positive reinforcement that you can take with you into your everyday life.
