About the event

Yoga nidra is a powerful relaxation practice that can act as a natural, but powerful stress reliever. Some people use yoga nidra for sleep improvement as well, although when practiced correctly, you don’t actually fall asleep. The ancient yoga practice helps you draw your consciousness inward so you can move into a more self-aware form of “sleep.”

If you crave those last few minutes of a yoga class when you settle into savasana for stillness and relaxation, meet your new best friend: the little-known practice of yoga nidra. An ancient practice to tame the nervous system, you’ll find your mind in a more collected, peaceful state as a result of the exercise.

At first glance, this class may seem like nothing more than lying on the floor wrapped up in super comfy clothing, a blanket and a heated eye mask.

There is power in stillness. Modern-day science is catching up to what many have known for ages: yoga nidra, also known as yogic sleep, improves your health in many ways including a 65% dopamine boost.

Many who practice yoga nidra report feeling fully rested in as little as 30 to 60 minutes of practice. Studies have proven one 30-45 minute yoga nidra practice will revive your mind and body as if you had 4 hours of deep sleep.

There are some complex things going on on the neurological level as the instructor guides your breath and focus throughout different parts of the body.

Yoga nidra helps shift your brain into the zone between sleeping and waking states; it’s like your body sleeps while your mind remains conscious and clear. Brainwave studies show higher alpha and theta brainwave power in participants who practice yoga nidra. This refers to brain waves shifting to beta ways, which reflect high levels of thought, to being completely relaxed, alert and hanging on the edge just before entering sleep.

Perhaps the most important benefits of yoga nidra is that it’s a practice available to all of us. (No crazy twists or standing on your head!) It’s also one of the easiest yoga practices to develop and maintain.

Since it’s practiced entirely in savasana, which means you’re lying down, there’s really no “wrong” way to do it. (If lying down isn’t accessible to you, you can also practice yoga nidra in a chair.) And since it’s guided, you’ll probably have less frustration compared to sitting down and trying to meditate cold turkey.

This guided relaxation helps improve sleep patterns in many people. Can’t sleep? Yoga nidra for sleep enhancement will likely grow stronger the longer you practice.

Open mind and a bottle of water

Essential Oils & disposable heated eye masks are provided at no additional charge.
