In Sanskrit, “Nidra” means Sleep, and “Yoga” means Unite. “Yoga Nidra” is a conscious and awakened way to fall asleep.
Yoga Nidra is an ancient and well known meditation and body-mind therapy. With step-by-step calming, vocal guidance, the instructor gently guides you to consciously experience unity with your physical body, gently allowing your body to embrace rest, then sleep.
If you have never experienced Yoga Nidra, I invite you to have the direct experience yourself with my friend, Yoga teacher to Yoga teachers, transformational life coach and spiritual guide – Craig Villani. I have had the honor of being led by Craig in Yoga Nidra Meditation many times and rather than tell you how incredible the meditation is, I would like you to experience it for yourself.
This is my personal, favorite meditation for my family and I: Yoga Nidra with Craig Villani
Ever since we have had to shelter at home, there has been a distinct loss in the quality of my sleep. I find myself up late at night and spending three times more the time I would usually spend on my computer screen. These are life changing times, and yet, we can be conscious and awakened of how we choose.
We may not have power over a global pandemic – we do have power over how we care for ourselves.
Every day we learn more and more about how necessary sleep is for our physical, as well as mental health. Good, clean, healthy sleep has never been MORE important than now. I invite you to experience Yoga Nidra and have good, quality sleep every night.
