The word yoga means conscious connection to Self. Nidra means sleep. Yoga Nidra is a yoga meditation technique that allows us to relax, recharge, rejuvenate and awaken higher consciousness.
Yogi Nidra is a Sanskrit term that means the light, wakeful sleep of an accomplished practitioner of yoga and meditation.
Yoga Nidra is a powerful meditation technique where the mind remains conscious during the normally “unconscious” state associated with deep sleep.
Practiced in the lying position, it is one of the most popular yoga meditation techniques because it induces a profoundly deep state of rest. It is effortless, enjoyable, soothing and recuperative.
As it is practiced today, Yoga Nidra is a technique that carries awareness deep into you, layer by layer. This process is called introversion, or pratyahara in Sanskrit. The pratyahara of Yoga Nidra induces deep relaxation.
Yoga Nidra takes your awareness deep into parts of you that you normally cannot access because of tensions. You systematically relax each part of your physical body and then move your awareness to the more subtle layers, your emotions and deeper mind, in order to relax those parts.
Yoga Nidra is a practice that enables you to gain deep rest so that you can recharge and rejuvenate yourself. Although it does not replace normal sleep, 30 minutes of Yoga Nidra is the equivalent of 3 to 4 hours of sleep.
3 Hours of Anatomy with Pamela Minix
Yoga is not about touching your toes, but what you learn on the way down
- Explore the human body and how it is effected by your yoga practice
- Experience yoga and the effects each pose has on the anatomical system
- Learn how you can develop a thought process to adapt poses to specific body types
- Memorize basic anatomy
- Develop a deeper appreciation of your body
- Build communicative verbiage and knowledge which can help connect you with other professionals in the medical, health and fitness industry
- Learn what muscles, tendon and ligaments are being effected in each pose
- Understand signals of tightness, pain or weakness, and know what to do about it
What to Expect
As yoga practitioners, we tend to Feel more than we Think. This anatomy course will utilize each sensory system to learn what’s going on under your skin.
- Find landmarks on a skeleton — with your eyes closed
- Have muscles drawn on your skin
- Watch each other hold poses as to discuss what is lengthening, where there might be imbalances, and how to improve positioning through anatomical cueing
Be ready to work your mind and body!
