Restorative Yoga and Yoga Nidra?
Restorative yoga is an excellent opportunity to disconnect from the frenetic activity of daily life and let your speedometer return to 0 mph. It offers a welcome respite among all the turbulence of life and helps to prepare the mind and body for the inward stroke of meditation and deepened awareness.
Assisted postures with props, cultivate space for a deeper experience of the poses and the breath. Awareness of the physical sensations, the thoughts or emotions that arise, or sounds in the environment, can all take on a much more profound significance in the depth of the restorative practice. Simply put, you’re able to notice and feel more of the world through your yoga experience. You will slip easily from approximately 55 minutes of restorative into Yoga Nidra.
Yoga Nidra is an ancient but little-known yogic practice that’s becoming increasingly popular as both a form of meditation and a mind-body therapy. It is a systematic form of guided relaxation that typically is done for 30-35 minutes at a time Lying down.
In a yoga nidra session, I guide you through several stages. You start by developing an intention for your life and for the practice. Then you focus your awareness on your breath, bodily sensations, emotions, and thoughts and welcoming whatever is present without getting caught up in it.
