Our Yoga Nidra specialist, Leontine relates the beautiful practice of Yoga Nidra.

Yoga Nidra is a form of guided meditation also known as “yogic sleep” or “effortless relaxation”. It’s usually practiced lying down with a teacher guiding the session. During the practice, we move attention from our daily sensorial perceptions to our inner experiences.  These include body sensations, movement of breath while recognizing feelings and emotions that may arise in our minds.   As we come to rest deeply during this process, we may experience ourselves as if floating between being awake and asleep. Our brain waves slow down and our nervous system finds back natural balance, bringing us a deep sense of ease and calm contentment. As the deeper layers of our conscious and subconscious awareness naturally reveal themselves, so do new perspectives.  We become aware of our underlying essential nature; of wholeness and bliss. We wake up to our deepest self, which is a transformative experience of homecoming beyond words.

Yoga Nidra brings us effortlessly into a relaxed and balanced state where healing can take place on various levels.  A place where we can align with the wisdom of our body and the truth of our hearts. Yoga Nidra is becoming very popular all over the world for good reasons, as broad research is supporting evidence of its powerful effectiveness in healing trauma, depression, sleep problems and many other health related issues.
