The Art of Non Doing (Yoga Nidra)
Can you imagine experiencing deeper levels of health, inner peace of mind and equanimity?
Allow me to share with you The Art of Non Doing. (Yoga Nidra.)
The experience of The Art of Non Doing is simple and there is no way to do it wrong. A typical practice can take 30– 50 minutes with - nowhere to go and nothing to do. All that is required is a mat or blanket on the floor, a blanket(s), something to cover your eyes and that you lie down, close your eyes and listen. That’s it! That’s all you have to do. Simply be.
Often referred to as Deep Relaxation, Divine or Yogic Sleep, this contemporary practice is based on ancient meditation and wisdom, a powerful technique in which you are guided systematically and learn to relax consciously at every level of your being.
The Art of Non Doing invites you through a body scan, breath awareness, a visual and sense component through the physical, energetic, mental, emotional and spiritual layers without needing to fix or change anything about yourself, simply notice. In this dawn between sleep and wakefulness you are invited to throw off the burdens, the tensions of life.
When you consciously relax, you’re switching off the sympathetic nervous system (fight or flight) and switching on the body’s natural healing qualities of the parasympathetic nervous system. Your body is able to use its’ innate wisdom to prevent illness, attain and maintain health and wholeness.
This practice may reduce stress, anxiety and its’ effects. Regular participation in the of The Art of Non Doing can alleviate and improve conditions such as depression, insomnia, high blood pressure, diabetes, headaches, cancer, addiction, PTSD, heart disease, ulcers, asthma, chronic pain, pre and post - surgical conditions as well as many other benefits.
The Art of Non Doing can also be practiced while seated in a comfortable chair and is most often practiced in community. Which makes it a wonderful offering for staff development, workshops, wellness programs, alternative support for clients and patients, employee incentives and education.
