Did you know that Yoga Nidra can help you sleep?
This World Sleep Day, Viriam Kaur wanted to share more on yoga nidra and how profoundly beneficial it can be for your sleep and overall wellbeing.
“Yoga Nidra is a profound relaxation technique that takes us into a deep state of healing. The benefits of Yoga Nidra are multifold – but it’s said that not only can it help us establish healthy sleep patterns, if we practice a 30 minute Yoga Nidra it is the equivilent of three hours of sleep – so it is an advanced power nap. Not only is it rejuvenating, but it is deeply healing and creates a space of greater lucidity and creativity.
Although Yoga Nidra means the yogic sleep – it actually takes us on a journey through the dream state and for some into the deep Delta waves of deep sleep. We are invited in our practice not to fall asleep but to ride the wave of sleeping and waking – the dream like space or reverie – a liminal space. Here we tap into our own healing and creative wisdom.
Yoga Nidra uses specific language which guides us from the analytical thinking mind into the liminal space of creativity and healing.”
