What is Yoga Nidra?
Yoga Nidra is an ancient meditation practice that harnesses the biological process of sleep to create an effortless disengagement from the thinking mind. Using a series of breath, body, and awareness techniques, you enter a space between waking and sleeping, a unique combination of alert awareness and deepest relaxation. Here, you easily enter the gap between you and our thoughts and re-establish the experiential knowing that you are more than what the mind thinks.
Studies have shown this practice puts the brain and body in a more resilient state in which you can change your relationship to pain, stressful situations, and habits, becoming more resistant to stress.
This type of meditation is accessible to absolutely everyone!

DOPAMINE - reward and focus, decrease impulsivity, helpful in Parkinson’s
DHEA - associated with anti-aging, lower risk of heart attack, diabetes, cancer, osteoporosis, rheumatoid arthritis, obesity, and chronic fatigue. Enhances memory and alleviates depression
