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.

Make time for yourself, invest in your health and well being, learn to rest and relax…

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 Mindfulness?

Mindfulness is a technique you can learn which involves making a special effort to notice what’s happening in the present moment without judging anything.
It can be easy to rush through life without stopping to notice much. However paying more attention to the present moment and also to your body, own thoughts and feelings and to the world around you, can improve your mental wellbeing.
Mindfulness helps us to deal with every day stresses. It is a prevention for stress related diseases and can also improve mental health. Therefore it is a useful alternative to people who doesn’t want to use medication.

There has been endless research done on Mindfulness and most noteworthy it appears to be a very successful practice on one’s overall health and wellbeing.

 

Benefits of Mindfulness:

  • Decrease Stress
  • Lowered blood pressure and heart rate
  • Increased awareness, attention and focus
  • Increased clarity in thinking and brain functioning
  • Lowered anxiety levels – being calm and internally still
  • Experience of feeling connected
  • Increased immune function
  •  Deep skeletal-muscular relaxation, removal of blockages and physical pain.

Excessive thoughts and suppressed emotions can affect your health. When we mindful of our emotions and thoughts then it is very much like turning down a volume of the chattering monkey mind. Therefore it increase the volume of our physical sensations and finally anchor us in the present moment.
