welcome & namaste,
In this 10 Minute Yoga Nidra, Ally Boothroyd will guide you through a relaxation and visualization for the element of earth (prithvi), the muladhara (root/base chakra), and vata dosha elevation (wind/air element elevation). A gentle forest visualization will calm, ground and balance vata, sooth anxiety, nourish the anna maya kosha (physical body) and invigorate muladhara chakra. Yoga Nidra is a form of meditation that helps with insomnia, anxiety, stress, adrenal fatigue, ptsd and so much more. Yoga Nidra translates as psychic sleep and is a systematic method of inducing physical, mental and emotional relaxation, while maintaining awareness at deeper levels.
Close your eyes and allow yourself to be guided into deep relaxation.As described by sparklingyoga: Yoga Nidra means Yogic Sleep, a state of deep sleep while you remain conscious. It brings an amazing clarity of mind, calmness and stillness. It is one of the deepest forms of meditation leading to supreme quietness and insight. The depth of Yoga Nidra is far beyond just relaxation. During a Yoga Nidra session, you leave your waking state, go through the dreaming state and into deep sleep state, yet remain fully awake.
Scientific research has demonstrated that restorative power of just one hour of Yoga Nidra is equal to 4 hours of healthy sleep. Tension and anxiety melt away with a profound experience of muscular, mental and emotional relaxation. Yoga Nidra is a state of receptivity and creativity, blissfully rejuvenating and restorative practice that will guide you into inner calm and a state of ease and relaxation.
"I have found this course so amazing on so many levels! I have found myself doing things with more ease. Working on beliefs that do not serve me, I am feeling myself blossoming into my authentic self. I find myself taking uncomfortable action with more ease (i.e., opening and sharing my heart, being on camera in front of others). I find myself putting more trust in my abilities as well as the universe. Surrendering the best I can, I am letting the small stuff go. Thank you for this course! It isn’t just about learning how to guide a beautiful practice. It is also about becoming intimate with your own being and allowing your light to shine from within!"
