MINDFUL through MEDITATION
Meditation - Yoga Nidra
Meditation is tough, even for some Yogis.
Yoga Nidra is a practice of non-doing, to pause the mind and the body.
Yoga Nidra is a guided meditation technique that uses the bilogical process fo sleep to guide you from high brain wave activity to a slower and slower brain wave state, using breath, body and awareness techniques to disengage from the thinking mind. It is here that you can change your relationship to pain, stressful situations, habits and enter a deep relaxation stage.
All the magic of restoration happens in this deep meditative state, and the more we practice, our brains come out of the constant fight / flight response mode and into a peaceful state of calm awareness, a space from where we act rather than react.
