Yoga nidra, considered both a practice and state of dreamless sleep, uses systematic relaxation aiming to unify the physical body, mind, and energy in a way that allows us to realize and reset the way we think, act, and experience daily life. This specific practice is crafted using gentle movement, pranayama, visualization, and relaxation techniques to build ojas.
Find meditation challenging? No problem. The majority of the experience is guided. All you have to do is arrive with comfortable clothes, a yoga mat if you have one, and an open mind. This practice is typically done laying on your back - if this is uncomfortable, it can also be done seated. A rolled up bath towel or extra yoga mat is suggested for use behind the knees, and those with neck and upper back pain might find a rolled up hand towel comforting under the curve of the neck. If you're curious about any possible physical modifications please don't hesitate to ask!
