Learn to Listen to Your Body in Meditation.
Have you ever noticed feeling light and physically relaxed when you’re happy? Or noticed sensations of unease in your heart, stomach, or gut when you’re upset?
Meditate on physical sensations, known as bodysensing, in order to feel calm, grounded, and healthy.
As the popularity of Yoga continues to expand, more and more people are being drawn into practices beyond Yoga asana (posture). One of the practices that are becoming increasingly lauded is Yoga Nidra.
This article attempts to de-mystify Yoga Nidra and show how this contemporised, yet ancient practice can be an incredibly practical tool to help us live our lives with ease, resiliency, equanimity and authenticity. We will look at the iRest Yoga Nidra protocol in some depth, and also offer some iRest Yoga Nidra resources at the end.
