What are the benefits of Yoga Nidra?
Hello curious person
The benefits of Yoga Nidra are countless and completely unique to you. You are taking the time to allow your body and mind to enter a deep state of conscious rest. Although you are not sleeping during this process, the benefits are similar to that of sleep. This time allows your nervous system to calm to a state of rest and digest (the opposite of the more commonly know fight or flight) which is vital for maintaining health.
Common benefits of Yoga Nidra:
Releases tension from body/mind
Reconnect with yourself
Increases energy levels
The above list contains some of the benefits that you will find published on hundreds of websites and blogs - all of which I agree with. However, I feel the biggest benefit of Yoga Nidra is that your experience is completely unique. Your mind will illustrate the visualization, sense each area of your body and experience sensation all in your own way. Whilst this is happening, you will take away whatever you need from the process.
I will soon be sharing a client's personal Yoga Nidra experience!
