About Yoga Nidra
Yoga Nidra is a systematic, guided, lying down relaxation technique originating from the ancient ritual of Nyasa where mantras are physically or mentally placed on the body. In Yoga Nidra we explore the hypnogogic state between waking and dreaming. Yoga Nidra includes breathing exercises, sankalpa, body scan, opposite practice and visualization techniques.
The benefits of Yoga Nidra include deep relaxation, healing, stress management and personal transformation. As a pratyahara practice (5th limb of Yoga), Yoga Nidra acts as a gateway to accessing deeper states of meditation.
Nya Patrinos is certified in Satyananda Yoga Nidra through the Yoga Academy of North America.
