MatchPoint NYC is excited to announce a new addition to our class line up, Yoga Nidra. Please check our schedule, it will begin next week.
What is Yoga Nidra?
Yoga Nidra means Yogic Sleep. It is a state of conscious Deep Sleep. In Meditation, you remain in the Waking state of consciousness, and gently focus the mind, while allowing thought patterns, emotions, sensations, and images to arise and go on.
However, in Yoga Nidra, you leave the Waking state, go past the Dreaming state, and go to Deep Sleep, yet remain awake. While Yoga Nidra is a state that is very relaxing, it is also used by Yogis to purify the Samskaras, the deep impressions that are the driving force behind actions.
Yoga Nidra brings an incredible calmness, quietness and clarity. Yoga Nidra is one of the deepest of all meditations, leading awareness through many levels of mental process to a state of stillness and insight. The descriptions in the article below can be difficult to understand. With patient and thorough practice the understanding is well worth the effort, allowing you to see the profound depth of Yoga Nidra, which is far beyond just relaxation.
It is said that a picture is worth a thousand words . Sometimes it takes thousands of words to get the true understanding of the meaning. Most important of all, it is the persistent practice that brings the real joy of the practice of Yoga Nidra, as with all useful practices in life and Yoga.
Results after practice can be seen and felt right after completion. Clear mind, mental focus, recharged nervous system and long term personal effect that a very one can choose for himself.
Anyone can practice and experience a profound lightness and balance of mind and body.
