Relaxation Meditation: Yoga Nidra

Hi beauties! 

Let’s talk about saving yourself, when life is just too much… 

I have been struggling with my sleep lately. Night after night, I crawl into my white cloud like bed, and lay there counting sheep… until even they fall asleep. 

I will be the first to admit that sometimes I almost drown in all my tasks.  We don’t always have the option to SAY NO. So, as gracefully as possible, we pick up one more ball and juggle. 

It is in times like this, that I reach into my Mary Poppin’s bag of tricks, and pull out a Lifebuoy.

Yoga nidra (Sanskrit: योग निद्रा) or yogic sleep is a state of consciousness between waking and sleeping, like the “going-to-sleep” stage. 

It is a state in which the body is completely relaxed, and the practitioner becomes systematically and increasingly aware of the inner world by following a set of verbal instructions.

Benefits: Deep relaxation, powerful meditation, and restful sleep. 

If you are wrestling with sleep, or just feeling overwhelmed, take some time and try a nidra.

The MOST important thing you can do for your health, when life is crazy, is ensure you are taking some down time.

This nidra is available on youtube, and you can also download it using the link provided.

Whether you have five minutes, or time to simply closing your eyes and taking one breath… find a moment of peace.

May you find rest and well-being in every moment of stress.
