More about Amrit Method Yoga Nidra
Did you know that 85% of all health problems are caused by stress? Psychosomatic stress creates conflicts that cause degenerative self-destructive physical, mental, emotional disorders and habit patterns. When you remove the "cause" of all the symptoms that you experience as "effects", they then begin to heal and disappear.
Yoga Nidra, also known as "Yogic Sleep" or "Divine Sleep", focuses on the systematic relaxation of the body while at the same time, allowing the mind to enter a state of deep, meditative inner awareness. In turn, it can free you from the stress-producing, rigid habits that destroy your health and peace of mind. This Tantric technique is designed to take you into the inner most self-balancing, self-healing integrated state of the Zero Stress Zone where body, mind, heart and soul are brought into perfect harmony.
This guided experience has the power to erase the hidden cause of stress, not only in the physical, but also in the mental and emotional bodies. Appropriate for all levels of experience.
