Bulletin Highlight: Yoga Nidra Rewires your Brain
“Yoga nidra is the yoga of aware sleep. In this lies the secret of self healing. Yoga Nidra is a pratyahara technique in which the distractions of the mind are contained and the mind is relaxed.”
— Satyananda Saraswati
Yoga Nidra, or “yogic sleep,” is a powerful experience of progressively relaxing and revitalizing the body on all levels: physical, energetic mental, and emotional.
It has the power to help you access unconditional joy, achieve deep restorative peace and awaken your intuition.
The advanced practice can also help clear lingering unresolved memories and release negative patterns.
How it Works
Yoga Nidra is a powerful, scientific method, based on ancient Tantric teachings. The technique encourages prolonged deep relaxation state of “alpha wave” activity. These brain waves pattern is present when our brain is at rest and clear of unwanted thoughts.
Advanced practitioners are also able to access the “theta” & “delta” wave patterns of dreaming and deep sleep states with full consciousness, Such access can lead to permanent rewirement of the brain.
