What is Yoga Nidra?

Yoga Nidra ("yogic sleep")  is a state between sleep and consciousness.

During the practice of Yoga Nidra, we are able to reprogram subconscious and unconscious patterns and core beliefs. 

By repeating a sankalpa / intention during deep relaxation,  we align our conscious beliefs and desires with our waking impulses and behaviors.

Guidelines (please read before playing the recording)

Practice in a place where you will not be disturbed                                                                                                           Turn off your phone.  Be warm enough and comfortably dressed.  If you are practicing before bedtime, consider doing your bedtime ritual before beginning this practice so you can get right into bed afterwards.                     Though it can be practiced while seated, I find it most relaxing while reclined.

Have props ready before beginning the practice                                                                                                              Place a bolster, pillow or rolled up blanket under the knees to support your low back.

Cover yourself in a blanket to keep warm. 

Place an eye pillow or scarf over the eyes to direct the focus inward, thus enhancing relaxation.

Creating your SANKALPA                                                                                                                                                    Consider formulating your sankalpa BEFORE beginning the recording.  You could write it down, so as to continue using it ongoingly. 

Aligning our daily activities with our sankalpa brings direction, focus and awakens a feeling of purposeful living. Success is fortified by staying with the same sankalpa from practice to practice until it becomes a reality for you!

Your sankalpa is stated simply and clearly,  in a positive, forward-directed statement.

Repeat this whole-heartedly, AS THOUGH IT IS ALREADY HAPPENING.

Your sankalpa penetrates the subconscious mind where it will then take effect. 

Examples:    "I am trusting"

                      "I have abundance"

                      "I welcome health and wellness"

                      "I embrace all of who I am"

                      "My body is strong, resilient and comfortable"
