Restorative Meditation - Yoga Nidra with Brigitte Parvin
Yoga Nidra is the art of conscious deep relaxation. The body is asleep but the mind is awake and an active participant in the healing process. In this state, you can access the subtle flow of energy called prana in your body and use your awareness to remove blockages and support the Healing of your body and mind. With proper guidance you will be astounded at what you can do to restore your energy and heal yourself.
Here is a step-by-step guide to do yoga nidra.
Find a quiet space for you to comfortably lay down on your back and not be disturbed for about 45 minutes. You may choose to lay on a yoga mat if you have one.
Open your legs hip distance apart and your arms out from your body at about a 45 degree angle with your palms face up. You can also choose a position comfortable for you.
Tip: It is a good idea to cover yourself with a blanket to keep yourself warm.
Lying down straight on your back in Corpse Pose (Shavasana). Close your eyes and relax. Take a few deep breaths in and out. Remember to take slow and relaxed breaths.
Tip: If you feel any discomfort or pain in lower back, adjust your posture or use a pillow to elevate the legs a little, for more comfort.
Yoga nidra is thus a joyous, effortless way to just let go, relax, and enjoy the experience that follows.
