The Practice of Yoga Nidra
Yoga nidra or "yogic sleep" is a state of consciousness between waking and sleeping. It is a state in which the body is completely relaxed, and the practitioner becomes systematically and increasingly aware of the inner world by following a set of (audio) instructions. This state of consciousness (yoga nidra) is different to meditation in which concentration on a single focus is required. It is one of the most effective and least explored techniques for unleashing the power of your deep unconscious. For while ordinary sleep can renew the body and refresh the mind, Yoga Nidra has the ability to alter your unconscious programming.
The Amrit Method
The Amrit Method of Yoga Nidra requires neither years of practice nor intellectual understanding to access its power. All that is required is a focus of attention and an abiding trust in the process of revelation through direct experience. It is a unique combination of alert awareness and deep relaxation.
On the most basic level, Yoga Nidra relaxes, rejuvenates and renews the physical body. It also empowers you to eliminate unconscious obstructions and energetic blocks that prevent you from living your life to the fullest. Through regular practice, Yoga Nidra enables you to effortlessly realize your intentions and achieve an integrated state in which your body moves towards self-healing.
Yoga Nidra for Stress Relief
It has been estimated that stress is the underlying cause of as much as 80% of illnesses. Stress comes in many forms, many of them so much a part of our routine that we fail to recognize them as problems. These hidden stress triggers continually barrage us, and cumulatively they result in a wide range of health issues. Yoga Nidra takes you beyond the barriers of the five senses. In this realm, which we call the “Zero Stress Zone,” you have the power to actualize your intentions, affirmations and prayers. This practice initiates shifts from the deepest core of your being and provides you with powerful tools to eliminate stress and banish self-destructive unconscious fears, beliefs and habits. Your life begins to synchronize with your intentions because you no longer fight yourself.
