In a society that expects you to always be on, doing, and productive, rest can be seen as a radical, revolutionary act. If you’re someone who often lets rest and relaxation fall to the back-burner of your to-do list, this episode has been made for you!
Yoga Nidra, also known as NSDR or non-sleep deep rest is a self-care practice which originated in India and has been developed for over thousands of years. It’s been gaining traction and coming closer to the spotlight in the West over the last couple years and it is my goal with this episode to continue bringing light to the gift that is Yoga Nidra.
In this episode, you’ll learn all about what Yoga Nidra is, when and how to practice it, and be given the opportunity to try on an hour-long practice. Be sure to listen until the end to learn just some of the scientific and spiritual benefits that Yoga Nidra has to offer.
It’s time to slow down to the speed of wisdom and unlock new levels of concentration, relaxation, and peace. Your highest potential awaits!
