Meditation: Yoga Nidra Practice
We will introduce the art of Yoga Nidra in depth next month however we will begin the practice of enlightened sleep before going into the deep teachings. For now, please know this is the only meditation practice were we lay on our back to practice.
You will need a blanket of yoga mat to lay on, a pillow under your back or shoulders if you feel tight in these areas and a light piece of cloth for your eyes if practicing during the day. To avoid the temptation and creating samskaras (impressions or patterns) where you drift to sleep try to practice before the sun goes down.

Playlist for the month: Ways that Were Playlist
Traditionally, Yoga Nidra is considered to be equal to the higher stages of
samadhi, a state during in which activity of the mind is completely suspended. In
Yoga Nidra neither thoughts nor images are present, and the practitioner
experiences conscious, deep, dreamless sleep, possessing awareness of the
surroundings––without either thinking about or interacting with them.
