Culturally, we are moving towards higher levels of division and speed. Everything in our world is getting faster and faster and thus we are having to split ourselves up into smaller parts to get everything done. This disrupts our physiology as we have to process more sensory input than we ever have before; the acceleration and distraction we have created in today’s world causes us to be anxious, fearful, depressed, or scatterbrained.
Yoga Nidra is a practice that allows us to do the opposite. By lying down and using the healing power of Divine Sleep, we feel both a sense of unity and a slowing down; we feel wholeness once again. The practice of Yoga Nidra allows us to slow down while making us more unified both individually and collectively.
On today’s podcast, world renowned Yogi, Rod Stryker, tells us why Yoga Nidra, the yoga of Enlightened Sleep, is such an important and effective methodology in our world. It is healing not only on a physical level, but therapeutic to all five of our koshas. Listen in and gain insight on this practice that could possibly change and heal your life!
