Yoga is a journey toward self-awareness. On this journey relaxation skills help us gather the disparate energy of the body and the mind and focus them internally. Then mental distraction intrude with less intensity and a sense of inner flexibility and calmness develops. Relaxation also prepares the personality for a still more interior practice. Through meditation we can safely enter the quiet and inward place of the mind & heart.

Relaxation (Yoga Nidra)
Beneath the ups and downs of everyday life there is a profound state of balance. By resting the brief period in that state we can create a resilient and stable mind even in the face of stress. That’s way each of us, on a deep level, craves relaxation- it revives our confidence and reawakens a sense of self-control. Yoga relaxation exercises quite the sense and leads us beneath the restless surface of the mind. Through relaxation we restore a sense of inner harmony.

Sound vibrations that permeate every cell of your being and allow your mind to dissolve and repose. Mantras are repetitive sounds used to penetrate the depths of the unconscious mind and adjust the vibration of all aspects of your being. Mantras are vibrated through chanting aloud, mental practice, or by listening to them. The experience of how sound vibrations affect your being is Naad yoga.
