Yoga Nidra is becoming more and more “popular”. It’s been known and used by yogis as part of holistic yoga practice since I began my yoga practice over 35 years ago. It’s now being presented as a “mainstream” class where you can take a nap – but it’s oh so much more than that!
Have you ever noticed that incessant chatter going on inside of your head? It’s like having a constantly talking voice going on about everything and nothing….eating up so much of your time, attention and more importantly, your energy.
Yoga Nidra is the practice of getting so deeply relaxed, resting beneath the thoughts, free from all the opinions, preferences and judgments of the mind. When we rest in this effortless state of being and deep peace, all judgments of the mind disappear and the body, mind, and soul can restore in ways that are profound.
Have you been thinking of starting a holistic health and wellness program but you’re not sure where to start and you’re scared of wasting time on the wrong steps? Let me be your guide! I’ll show you the right steps on how to build a lifestyle to feel better, look better and function better every day of your life.
The Attitude of Gratitude is the Highest Yoga Bhajan
MEDITATE to Reduce Stress
Did you know that stress fills the body with toxins? Stress can actually make us crave all the wrong things! But rather than going on a major detox, did you know that meditation is actually more effective, and much faster than going on a detox diet?
Meditation is the perfect stress reliever. Take a few minutes and try this simple meditation:
Sit or lay down.
Allow your body to feel slightly heavy.
Bring your attention to your belly button and see a little light flickering. Now take a deep breath in and as you do visualize the flame stretching and reaching up. Now breathe out slowly and completely. Visualize the flame becoming a ball of light expanding out from that original flame and transforming anything that is not in your highest and best good and releasing it fully.
Continue this for a couple of minutes.
Bring your hands to your belly – where the original flame flickers brightly as if it is now content, whole, complete. Take a breath in and now imagine as you breathe you are being held by the earth and visualize all people, thoughts, ideas, energy that are in alignment with your highest and best good are attracted to you.
Bring your awareness to your heart.
Put a smile on your face.
Now notice how you feel. You can do that anytime you desire.
