Unless we are free from muscular, mental, psychological and emotional tensions, we are never
truly relaxed. ~ Swami Satyananda Saraswati
What is Nidra Yoga?
Facing the challenges of our contemporary life, too often meaningless, Nidrâ Yoga stands for dramatically reducing mental stress and developing concentration capacities.
It is also a millennia-old understanding bringing deep insights into the meaning of our human nature dealing with the intense movement of today society. ~ Andre Riehl
Nidra Yoga is a powerful and ancient practice that focuses on deep relaxation and concentration.
The combination of these two elements leads to a deeper meditative state, where the mind and body become more still and the quality of attentiveness arises.
This heightened state of awareness brings with it a sense of affection or love. Not only do we feel more loving towards others, but we also feel as if something is taking care of us. As a result, many fears and anxieties also begin to dissipate.
