Mindfulness Meditation and Relaxation for stress, anxiety and other issues

Using different techniques to suit your individual needs, such as Yoga Nidra, Meditation and Relaxation we relax the body and mind. Yoga Nidra was developed by Swami Satyananda Saraswati in 1940 and was developed from a tantric practice of Nyasa (meaning, ‘to place’ or ‘to take the mind to that point’). It can be practised by people of any religion or culture.

Yoga Nidra (the term ‘nidra’ translates as sleep) has been called ‘yogic sleep’, however this is not strictly accurate. It’s a state between waking and sleep, practised in a totally relaxed state – a sort of psychic or dynamic sleep. In this threshold state (this state has also been called the hypnogogic state) contact with the subconscious and unconscious dimensions can occur spontaneously. In this state, the mind is extraordinarily suggestive. The aim of the practice is to release muscular tensions, emotional tensions and mental tensions. It is said that an hour of Yoga Nidra equates to four hours of conventional sleep.

Yoga Nidra and Meditation allows the mind to be ‘impressed’ because when relaxation is complete, receptivity is greater. It can not only relax, but restructure and reform the whole from within. Although the sensory channels are disconnected, awareness is maintained. The brain is completely awake. They stimulates the brain by heightening awareness of the body. The progressive movement of awareness through the parts of the body clears all the nerve pathways to the brain, as well as inducing physical relaxation. It relaxes the brain by relaxing the body.
