Yoga Nīdra - Achieving Bliss Through Yogic Rest
Yoga Nīdra is the yogic state wherein progressive relaxation is practiced, with the ultimate goal of attaining bodily rest, while the mind remains fully awake and aware. In this state, one is able to better perceive and manipulate subtle energies, and infuse their lives with healing intentions (called Sankalpa, in Sanskrit).
No prior training in meditation or yoga is necessary, although Yoga Nīdra can work in conjunction with other meditation practices to deepen them. Yoga Nīdra is performed while completely in śavāsana (corpse pose).
Joey regularly hosts group Yoga Nīdra events at Luminous Energetic Pathways Sacred Centre in Burlington, Ontario, Canada. Private one-on-one sessions are also available upon request.
