Yoga Nidra – magical yogic dream (part 3)

REVIEWS ON THE FIRST EXPERIENCE OF A NIDRA YOGA
In fact, everything presented in this article can be found on the Internet or in the book of S. S. Sarasvati “Yoga Nidra”. The most valuable source will still be practical experience, and your own. However, it is always interesting to know, “how does it happen with others?”
Two yoga nidra practitioners shared their experiences:
Irina describes her experiences after two sessions of yoga nidra.
“Nidra, as I understand it, is staying in a state between sleep and reality, wandering in the back streets of the subconscious. For two times I was “abused” ad libitum. It’s hard to describe, as if you were watching some incoherent film. Continue reading

Yoga Nidra – magical yogic dream (part 2)

At the same time, you should know that during the advancement of your consciousness you inevitably go through the sphere of hypnosis, which can disconnect you from yoga nidra. However, if you have not lost your awareness of the yoga nidra process, this vigilance continues automatically. During the practice of yoga nidra, consciousness remains active, we develop the ability to consciously observe, but not analyze. The main difference from hypnosis is that the practitioner does not lose his free will. If the process is not to his liking, he is always free to stop it. In addition, the very “grain” that is laid in the fertile soil of the subconscious or the so-called “sankalpa” (affirmation) – the practitioner formulates for himself. The instructor is just a guide offering you a specific technique and never forcing a process and not subordinating practitioners to his will. Continue reading

Yoga Nidra – magical yogic dream (part 1)

Do you agree with the statement that relaxation for modern Westerners is an art that needs to be learned? Or are you convinced that relaxing means coming home, leaning back in an armchair, closing your eyes … Maybe splashing something relaxing in a glass or turning on a relaxing TV / computer? Many believe that it is enough to go to bed and relaxation will come automatically. But why, then, having overslept a seemingly sufficient number of hours, do you wake up tired and broken? Stress becomes habitual, we stop noticing it until it “shoots” with increased pressure, asthma, an ulcer or other bad sore. Thoughts, anxieties and worries are brewed in the head even at night, burdening dreams. Yogis call this dream “Nidra.” But there is another type of sleep, free of burden – this is YOGA NIDRA or yogic dream or “dream without dreams” as it is also called. Continue reading

About Yoga Therapy

Yoga therapy is a “narrowly focused” yoga, which synthesizes knowledge of modern medicine and physiology with ancient yogic knowledge about a person and is aimed at eliminating a particular disease / pathological condition – that is, yoga is used as a method of treatment. With the help of yoga exercises (asanas), breathing practices (pranayamas), purification practices (shatkarmas) – you can create a miracle to restore your body and health. All that is required is to have enough discipline to practice regularly. An hour and a half practice a day is, in my opinion, a good alternative to a scalpel or tablets, which usually “treat one and cripple the other” and have a temporary effect. Yoga therapy is a natural, natural way to restore health. Yoga therapy is literally an investment in your health and longevity. Continue reading

YIN YOGA. What it is?

What is yin yoga?
Yin yoga is a passive practice, based on a sequence of asanas that are maintained over long periods of time (from 2 to 20 minutes).
Due to a long stay in each asana, very deep layers of tissues that are usually not affected by the practice of yoga are included in the work and released. And with them, energy blocks are released, blocked emotions rise and transform.

Thanks to this approach, the deepest study and purification at the emotional, energy, physical and psychological levels takes place in Yin Yoga. Continue reading
