Yoga Nidra is the time to still the body and mind after your yoga practice. Nidra asana is an opportunity to lie in shavasana - 'the corpse posture' and focus and still the mind to leave you cleansed and clear after your yoga practice. This deep yoga nidra meditation will give you such peace of mind and calm of body.
Good Yoga Nidra language
So many yoga teachers are excellent in their field but fall down when it comes to proper use of relaxing language.
For example a teacher might say something like: 'Let go of tension and stresses'. Now, the brain is an organ that needs clear positively framed instructions. So, for example, telling a child not to drop the tray of food is actually aligning the child's mind to dropping the tray.
By using this language, the yoga teacher sets a negative template - asking the child to be careful with the tray of food is setting the right template. The brain needs clear, positively orientated instructions and this most certainly applies to language used during your yoga nidra practice.
There will be many hypnotic language patterns used in this session you'll not be aware of but you'll find it's all positively phrased to make your experience much more powerful and positive.
