Deep Rest for the Mind and Body – Himalaya Yoga Valley – Online Yoga Studio

Deep Rest for the Mind and Body

 

Within this part of the class, your parasympathetic nervous system will be stimulated to counteract the body’s fight or flight response and will help to decrease built up stress or anxiety. We will finish with a full Yoga Nidra or “Yogic Sleep”. This is the systematic method of inducing complete physical, mental and emotional relaxation. You will be lying down and will be talked through a body scan, breath awareness and visualisations to access your theta brain wave state for deep rest, transformation and healing.

Suitable for: This class is open to all levels.

Effects: This class is a total rest for the mind and nervous system and is proven to be a wonderful way of relieving stress. 1 hour of yoga nidra is considered to be as restful as 4 hours of sleep.
