How Can Yoga Nidra Support You?
Welcome to my new blog!
““In yoga nidra, we restore our body, senses, and mind to their natural function and awaken a seventh sense that allows us to feel wholeness, tranquility, and well-being,”
People often call Yoga Nidra a practice, which suggests that there is an active state of doing. Yoga Nidra is in fact a process and a state of being. It is that place between being awake and asleep, that liminal space. You know that time just before you fall asleep, it is a beautiful space, like dropping in to nothingness, that is the space we wish to embrace with Yoga Nidra. The word Nidra means sleep, however it is about exploring the different states of consciousness so we can wake up, or experience awakening.
Yoga Nidra is a set of of techniques put together to help guide you in to this space, there are many different techniques which the practitioner will choose to use accordingly with the needs of the client and situation that can achieve different purposes such as simple relaxation down to unlocking creativity.
A few of these techniques could range from breathwork, setting intentions, body scanning and more all through the guidance of the practitioners voice.
With the breath awareness it can help with relaxation, helping focus being mindful, emotional regulation, immune system, being more aware of our energy body and general wellbeing.
Moving awareness around the body can help with slowing down thoughts, relaxation, awareness and to become more body responsive. It can also help with emotional regulation, calming the nervous system, self compassion and connection with ourselves.
It is in fact a form of meditation which we do lying down, which allows us to better access the pocket between being awake and asleep.
When we experience this new state of consciousness things change within our brain and nervous system and we can connect with our creativity, we can in turn then take this awareness into our sleep and our sleep then becomes meditation, which is wonderful.
As you listen to the practitioners voice, you may hear the words but not consciously understand the words, or you may fall deeply asleep and still be aware, the are different states that you may go through, or simply deeply fall asleep, all are right at the time that you experience Yoga Nidra and with repeated sessions you can find yourself dropping more and more in to that beautiful liminal space.
Meditation has a range of benefits such as being mentally clearer, emotionally calm, a deeper connection to the self, reducing stress, anxiety, depression, pain, increasing that sense of wellbeing, spiritual awareness and more. It can have a spiritual dimension of connecting to something higher or to one’s own higher self and can allow you to explore different states of consciousness.
Yoga Nidra sessions can last anything from 10 – 30 minutes on average.
From personal experience I enjoy Yoga Nidra best just after lunch in that lull period when energy dips can happen to reset me for the rest of the afternoon, or just before I go to bed to have a beautiful treat for myself to let me float in to a wonderful night’s sleep.
I am currently offering a four week course below and shall be offering some recorded Yoga Nidras so that you can have access them to anytime you wish.
I encourage you to join and bring other members of your household to enjoy this experience!
The first session is tonight, 20th January 9 pm.
This course is available to everyone price-wise, please pay what you can afford by way of energy exchange, but if you cannot do not miss out, there are some free spaces for those in need.
Much love, Justine xxx

It is more than a nap. It’s a practice that, through a structured and conscious movement through sleep states, take you to realms beyond the mind and into the fourth state of consciousness beyond waking, dreaming and deep sleep. It’s up to use to determine how far we want to take the practice and for what purpose Its beauty is that is addresses the entire spectrum from the concrete to the most subtle.
