Sleep Yoga guided meditation
you have been to a yoga class you will have experienced some yoga nidra
before. Some teachers begin the class with yoga nidra as well as
practise it at the end of the yoga class. In the final yoga relaxation part of most yoga sessions the
teacher will invite all the students to lie on their mat in sarvasana,
dead body pose. The students are then guided through a well planned
sequence of deep peace relaxation talk, this settles the healing energy
and helps everyone to unwind.
If you ever have the opportunity to attend a Relax Renew Replenish yoga nidra session I would strongly advise you do so.
It is a very, very blissful relaxing experience not to be missed. The
teacher will talk you through a routine in which you will be asked to
pay attention to your breath and also pay keep a gentle awareness onattention to what is going on throughout your
body. There is so much to it, I don't really want to spoil it for you,
so my advise would be to pop along to a class when you can and immerse
yourself in the experience.
I will just say that you will notice
the tension you are holding in your body and be able to let it go,
exhale it away on your outward breath. You will also notice your breath
slowing and deepening, developing into a rejuvenating deep smooth wave of breath as you inhale and exhale.
have commented that they were not sure if they went to sleep or not,
but were aware that they experienced a deep sublime form of relaxation, a
state of heightened awareness while still being
mindful of hearing everything the teacher said, including following the
instructions at the end to stretch through fingers and toes. They were
incredibly bemused by the fact that the hour spent lying on their yoga
mat doing essentially nothing went by in a flash.
Yoga nidra is
an excellent remedy for insomnia and anxiety. A number of students have
shared the fact that they suffered from insomnia for years but after
yoga nidra they were able to fall asleep happily in their beds and sleep
for 7 - 8 hours or more.
