We love adding Yoga Nidra to the cleanse. Below Caley Alyssa explains what it is and how it works.
Yoga Nidra is an ancient guided meditation practice known as yogic sleep. Its name is a bit of a misnomer in that the practice is done lying down, and the goal is actually NOT to fall asleep but to dance on the edge of sleeping state and wakefulness. In Nidra, we move from the typical Beta brain wave state where our eyes open where we experience and react to external events, to Alpha and Theta brain waves states with our eyes closed. In this magical space, our internal experiences become much more real than whatever is going on outside. And through this heightened state of awareness, we are able to access BEING and bring to light the deepest parts of ourselves that we’ve been longing to uncover and intimately know.
By allowing the thinking mind and physical body to deeply rest, Nidra is able to gently peel back the layers of illusion, and move through the Koshas to reveal the subconscious mind. In this sweet spot of SUPER AWARENESS, we can gain access to powerful insights, become aware of inner knowing, and experience a profound sense self-love. Conscious reprogramming of outdated neuro-pathways illuminates our path to the amplification of a positive, embodied, and loving life experience.
