Also called "psychic sleep," yoga nidra is a state between sleeping and waking. The body is completely relaxed and the practitioner turns the awareness inward by listening to a set of instructions; much like a guided meditation. Performing yoga nidra involves practicing pratyahara ("withdrawal of the senses"), which is the fifth limb of Ashtanga yoga.
Yoga Nidra practice results in deep relaxation and expands the individual's self-awareness. Often offered as a POP up post physical work out ( IHP or one of our Yoga classes) this practice will settle your senses and all for even deeper benefits of the postures you have already performed - a kick start to the ‘after-burn’ the residual benefits of your daily practice.
This class is performed in a warm room with ventilation, where you are able to support yourself with blocks/bolsters/ blankets and props so that you are able to comfortably reach that desired state of relaxation and rejuvenation.
