Meditation - Yoga Nidra

Link visible for attendees

Yoga Nidra means a yoga sleep, but Yoga Nidra is not sleeping or concentration. It is opening the inner chambers of your mind. It is relaxing. You step down into the internal dimension of your consciousness. Even if you do not understand anything in yoga nidra, it does not matter. The voice acts as a rope. As you would take a rope and go in and out of the depths of a cave, so with the help of sound, you venture in and out of the mind.
To prepare, find a relaxing position, lying down. It could be on a yoga mat (with a blanket on top, so it is soft & warm), or on a bed. You could elevate your legs or torso - at an angle- or put your arms on pillows or blankets. You should be comfortable so that you will not need to move around. If you don't feel comfortable at any time, do what you need to do, to be more comfortable. Cover yourself with a blanket to keep warm. You should try not to fall asleep, but it is okay if you do. You could comment at the end or just sign out.

Some links for yoga poses with props that could be used for Yoga Nidra (only use those where you are facing up, with your back on the mat, or bed). Your legs could be propped up, but NOT in "Legs Up The Wall" / "Viparita Karani".
