Yoga Nidra meditation

It is important for all facilitators to know that Yoga Nidra and meditation are two separate practices. Meditation and Yoga Nidra are powerful practices for deep relaxation, self-discovery, and inner transformation. They cultivate mindfulness, reduce stress, enhance mental clarity, and promote overall well-being and balance.

Mantra and Mudra

Mantras are considered an important part of Hatha yoga. When you recite mantras, the energy channels of the body open up, and you become more receptive to the universe. It also aids one to focus the mind on the yoga practice. When you recite mantras, your stored emotions are released and you get the full benefits of the asanas. Mudras are nothing but gestures, which you make with your hands and fingers mostly. There are nerves that pass through the fingertips, and each one is connected to a specific organ. When you press the same, you are actually providing therapeutic healing to those body parts.
