Yā devī sarva-bhūteṣu nidrā-rūpeṇa saṃsthitā
To the Divine Goddess who reside in all existence in the the from of Sleep
Yoga Nidra, an ancient teaching dating back to the Tantras uncovers the transformational & healing power of deep rest.
In its contemporary style, the practice has been blended with modern neuroscience to serve as a form of meditation, total relaxation & a mind-body therapy that is accessible to everyone. Whether you have a yoga & meditation practice or are a complete beginner, Yoga Nidra is an easy way to meditate with incredible therapeutic results.
When practiced regularly, Yoga Nidra brings you into a heart centred way of living, clearing out the crap, the limiting self beliefs, the default anxiety settings and realigns you to a more heart centred way of living so you may navigate your life to its fullest potential.
Some of the potential benefits of Yoga Nidra:

Improve sleep & decreases insomnia
Help with pain management
Heighten energy levels – it is said 45 minutes of Nidra is as restorative as 3 hours of sleep
Create a profound state of peace & well-being
Work with deep rooted belief systems & habitual patterns (samskaras) that no longer serve you

Meditative / spiritual inquiry
