To Medicate or to Meditate?
Suffer from sleepless nights? Stressed, in pain, suffering from depression, anxiety or PTS? Science has now proven that chronic stress can actually decrease our lifespan. Stress cause adrenaline fatigue, depletes the brain chemicals (serotonin and oxytocin) required for happiness and shortens our telomeres (the “end caps” of our DNA strands), which causes the acceleration of the ageing process. Negative attitudes and feelings of helplessness and hopelessness can lead to illness and disease because it damages the immune system, hormonal imbalance.

What is Yoga Nidra?
Yoga Nidra — known as yogic sleep — is a meditation and conscious relaxation practice that is intended to induce total physical, mental, and emotional relaxation. Yoga Nidra helps shift your brain into the zone between sleeping and waking states and even more, it helps cells regenerate and repair. Most noteworthy it can decrease anxiety and improve our mood. It’s like your body sleeps while your mind remains conscious and clear while it recharges.
