What Is Yoga Nidra?
Yoga Nidra, taken from the Sanskrit words meaning ‘yogic sleep’, is both a state of awareness and a practice. As a practice it is both a technique that helps to promote deep relaxation and a practice of effortless meditation. As a state of awareness it falls somewhere between sleeping, waking and dreaming and offers the potential to reap the benefits of both deep meditation and sleep simultaneously (win).
During a Yoga Nidra practice the brain moves through different states of awareness and as such exhibits different brainwaves activity as guided by the various stages of the practice. Between each of the stages are opportunities to access the subconscious through the doorways of the liminal states of awareness that can arise such as the hypnogogic state (usually found just before falling asleep) and the hypnopompic state (usually arises just before waking).
Yoga Nidra has immense healing potential due to this capacity to access the subconscious, induce deep states of relaxation, bring normally unconscious functions under conscious control and provide a safe container within which to explore trauma, pain, suffering and challenging emotions without being triggered into emotional responses.
And all of this unfolds quite naturally without needing to do anything at all and with no prior experience, understanding or information required in order to receive the benefits.
Honestly this practice is gold.
One of my favourite memories from a yoga nidra class was as we were checking in at the start I asked why people practice. One of my favourite very softly spoken yoga teachers was in room and she answered to everyone's surprise: I just come here to get high. I now introduce new people to the practice by calling it drugs for sober people.
Yoga Nidra can be incredibly effective at helping to:
- Undo the negative impacts of stress
- Release deeply held physical or emotional tension
- Soothe anxiety and calm the nervous system
- Ease sleep difficulties and insomnia
- Effectively help manage and integrate trauma
- Help with neuroplasticity and the creation of new neural pathways
- Improve memory and recall
- Boost creativity and productivity
- Improve overall health and wellbeing
And so much more, the possibilities are endless and the benefits long lasting and profound.
