Today Chinmayi Dore looks at The Power of Yoga Nidra for Body Image and a Positive Outlook
Even if you have never practised yoga before you may have heard about it’s benefits to the mind, the body and your soul. You may not understand why or how it does this. And although you may have little interest in the physical aspect of yoga, there is a very special practice called Yoga Nidra which involves no movement. It is thought to be the most effective relaxation you can do. And yet it is maybe 1000s of years old!
Nidra means sleep. It is not your attention to go to sleep with this practice but if you do, it doesn’t matter. Just go with the flow. It can actually really help with sleep problems. This guided practice will work very deeply on the subconscious parts of your mind and will help with stress and overwhelm. But especially in this practice, body image and confidence.
10 benefits of Yoga Nidra include:
It helps in relieving muscular, emotional, and mental tension.
Yoga nidra relaxes the mind by relieving stress and anxiety. It heals depression and nervous imbalances.
It treats insomnia, psychological disorders, and psychosomatic diseases. It is known to be used in the treatment of trauma and shock.
It trains the mind and helps in enhancing memory and increasing learning capacity.
Yogic sleep also results in increased energy levels.
It heals endocrinal imbalances and ensures optimal functioning of the endocrine system.
Yoga nidra not only detoxifies the body, but also clears up the subconscious. It helps in releasing the ‘repressed matter’ from the subconscious.
It improves creativity.
It also leads to improved senses and more cultivated body awareness.
Yoga nidra restores the mind and body and leads to restructuring of the whole personality from within.
