I have been practicing yoga since my mother introduced me to it before the age of 10, and have devoted myself to the practice for the last 8 years. Yoga has been incredibly healing for me on all levels, mentally, emotionally physically and spiritually, and I’ve always considered it to be one of my most powerful methods for self growth, acceptance, and healing. The introduction of yoga nidra specifically however has added a depth and breadth to the profound healing effects of what I knew yoga could do. Such a seemingly simple practice leaves me with a feeling of clarity and enhanced sensory experience every time I come out from it. I could sleep for several days and still never awaken with the kind of restfulness and alertness that I receive from just 45 minutes of yoga nidra. I will never pass up the opportunity to partake in this practice as the effects are invigorating and istantaneous. I intend to utilize this technique with all my clients in both my yoga classes as well as psychotherapy as a means of amplifying the healing effects of both practices.
Yoga nidra, as conducted by Cass Carlopio, is a powerful, gentle, and effective tool that helps the you resolve and release deep seated mental and emotional blocks within the brain. The result leaves you feeling refreshed, renewed, more resilient, and profoundly relaxed. I’ve personally experienced the positive results of her work in this area.
