WHAT IS NIDRA?
Nidra, also known as "yogic sleep" is a very relaxed guided meditation. The whole process is designed to be effortless.
All you need to do is listen to the audio and be taken on a journey.
With a regular practice, the body and psyche are given space to self-repair
Reduce muscular tension
Increase mental clarity
Brighten skin and eyes
Rewrite self-destructive beliefs in the subconscious
WHAT DO I NEED?
Headphones/speakers and a comfortable, quiet place you can tune in.
Position your body so that your are comfortable and able to remain relatively still.
You might like to lie on your back in savasana - perhaps on your bed, on the floor or on a couch. The less sensory stimulation the better and the more relaxed the better.

WHEN SHOULD I PRACTICE?
You can practice at any time you choose!
Practicing Nidra before falling asleep can be powerful as the brain is more likely to process experiences from the day in a way that supports your Sankalpa/ positive intention.
Nidra is also useful to practice at times you feel physically, mentally or emotionally fatigued.
WHAT IF I FALL ASLEEP?
You will still receive healing benefits. Falling asleep simply means your body is releasing fatigue. You can trust that your mind will remain aware and awake during a Nidra practice when it is ready to.
HOW MANY TIMES SHOULD I PRACTICE?
If you want to take the process deep and maximise the benefits – practice at least 5 times a week. The more you listen the more you strengthen the neural pathways that support your intention.
You may find it helpful to repeat the same Nidra audio for 5 days consecutively as your body-mind will begin to learn the rhythms and drop into a familiar and deep state of relaxation.
CAN THIS PRACTICE SHIFT NEGATIVE BELIEFS?
Yoga Nidra is like the master key when it comes to initiating shifts in your belief systems. It starts with dropping into a subconscious state and then setting positive intentions.
When positive information in the body-mind begins to outnumber negative information, the positive thoughts and emotions are more likely to be chosen automatically and unconsciously on a daily basis.
WHAT IS A SANKALPA?
You will have the opportunity to set a Sankalpa. This is a heartfelt intention about a quality, feeling or value you want to see manifest in your life such as freedom, abundance or clarity. Make it a short, clear and concise sentence. Use first person, present tense and positive wording e.g "I am..., I have... I create..."
HOW DO I CHOOSE A SANKALPA?
You can EITHER,
let your Sankalpa arise naturally during the Nidra practice (trust your subconscious will guide you to the right one)
you may wish to decide on a Sankalpa prior to the practice. If there is something specific in your life you would like to manifest, tune in to the FEELINGS in your body that arise when you imagine manifesting it. The qualities, feelings, or values associated with this manifestation goal should inform your Sankalpa.
There is also a Sankalpa Clarity workshop in the Living Intentions Plan
WHAT PEOPLE SAY
So nice to completely shut everything out and destress especially after work and exams. I can honestly say I understand the need for meditation.
