Tonight’s practice took the form of Yoga Nidra a form of guided meditation also known as “yogic sleep” or “effortless relaxation”. We focused our attention on the Autumn season and “letting go” of the things that no longer serve us
The practice draws our attention inwards, and we learn to surf between the states of wakefulness and sleep, where our body finds its natural state of equilibrium, the breath balances and becomes quiet, unconscious and conscious aspects of the mind reveal themselves, and we fall into an innate state of deep, blissful awareness.
This practice of Yoga Nidra takes us effortlessly into a state of harmonious, restful being. From here, we can be healed, restored and awakened to our deepest, all-knowing, all-welcoming self.
