Yoga is so much more than practicing poses–the physicality of yoga is a small portion of the practice itself. Meditation is where you cultivate an intimate connection and do your most profound healing. It can mitigate symptoms of anxiety and depression and heal our nervous system. It’s where you develop insight, clarity and get to know yourself. Yoga is steeped in the tradition of meditation and integrating it into your life can be transformative.
One of the most important and simple practices I have found is Yoga Nidra. It is a journey of effortless awareness back to our true nature. Here we move beyond the thinking mind and physical body to connect and remember our highest Self. Yoga Nidra is considered the highest practice of self-care for body, mind and spirit.
