Yoga nidra is a special relaxation technique that has a deep effect on the body, the energies and the mind. Nidra, meaning sleep, is a deep relaxation form of yoga, and a technique to awaken the connection between body, mind and soul. The practice is like a deep sleep while you are still awake. This ancient practice is becoming more popular as a form of meditation and mind-body therapy, and has multiple physical benefits.
- Reduce your stress
Suffering from hypertension, hypothyroidism or poor sleep? Deep relaxation exercises are known to reduce blood pressure, ease stress and improve sleep. They can also stimulate thyroid function, reduce the symptoms of chronic fatigue syndrome and adrenal insufficiency (although there is a lack of scientific evidence to back this up) and aid in the recovery of muscle fatigue and repair.
- Bring joy into your life
The practice of yoga nidra has some pretty powerful psychological benefits as well. It can help heal psychological wounds and assists those dealing with depression and dependency. It brings a profound sense of joy and well-being.
- Connect with yourself
Taking this one step further, yoga nidra is also a way to connect with your deeper, spiritual self. It restores the body, senses and mind to their natural function and awakens a subconscious awareness that allows you to feel no separation. Oneness, wholeness, tranquility and well-being are experienced on a universal level. This beautiful sensation comes to those who are available to receive it; an all-encompassing unconditional love for self and the universal self, which are understood to be the same thing.
Chanting simply means singing (rhythmic speaking) certain sounds or words. It calms our emotions, helps you to meditate better, produces positive energy and aids in enhancing our overall health. Here are some of the benefits chanting has on our body, mind and soul.
