Bringing together the incredible power of visualision with the beautiful practice of Yoga Nidra.

The Power of Yoga Nidra

Visualisation is a process of using the imagination to create and attract what you want in your life. Yoga Nidra (yogic sleep) is a beautiful guided meditation technique that relaxes body and mind. Here, I write about my experience with Yoga Nidra and creative visualisation – both practices that I have found empowering and emotionally releasing.

My experience with yoga

For a long time, yoga to me was a sort of escape from my mundane life; it took me to a place of sublime existence, where I was real and nothing else existed. It offered me a way out of my own restless mind that rejects stillness. My personal practices comprise asanas (physical postures), pranayama (breathing techniques that help to enhance the prana/life force) and concentration techniques. The goal of yoga is ultimately to take us towards a one-pointed meditative state. And the one preparatory practice for meditation that I love the most is Yoga Nidra: a practice that allows me to withdraw my senses inward. During Yoga Nidra the senses of sight, sound, smell, taste and touch are drawn inwards and the focus draws towards the universe within. This prepares the mind for meditation.
