The Power of Meditation









Meditation is something I’ve been interested in doing for awhile, but was a little hesitant.  As much as I love the calming effects of yoga, which requires immense focus and stillness, that is done through a moving meditation.  Lying down completely still for an hour while trying to clear my mind seemed almost impossible to me, yet intriguing.  I decided to give it a try, with Yoga Nidra, which is a meditation done in a sleep like state.

In Nidra you will meditate in the quietest, calmest level of consciousness and achieve total relaxation.  Even though it is done in a sleep like state, it’s dynamic since you’re still conscious.  I was surprised at how easily I was able to unwind and calm my mind, thanks in large part to the instructor’s guidance. The experience was equally relaxing and refreshing and I’m definitely going to try it again!
