What is yoga Nidra? 

Yoga nidra is often referred to as “yogic sleep”. It is a state of being between sleep and consciousness that allows for deep emotional and physical healing, rewiring your brain, and self-exploration. Yoga Nidra is considered by some to be an antidote to our modern lifestyle. Our modern day to day practices have us always connected via smartphones & stressed from the constant go, go, go mentality that has become our “norm”. Because of this, our nervous systems are constantly in a fight-or-flight mode or sympathetic state. Yoga nidra is an effective way to access the parasympathetic state or rest mode. This state allows students to heal, restore, & de-stress. An hour of yoga has been shown to be just a restful as a few hours of actual sleep. The best part about Yoga Nidra is that ANYONE can participate and benefit from it! There is no experience necessary. Just show up and enjoy.
