Yoga Nidra means “Yogic Sleep” but the practice is meant to help us hover between a state of sleep and wakefulness—awareness in a fully relaxed state. During this state, we can more easily “let go,” and surrender. In such a state, healing can take place where healing is needed.
This practice can help all people. including those who are experiencing trauma and grief, access a place where body/mind/spirit can feel more integrated supporting better sleep, rest, relaxation, overall functioning and healing where healing is needed. Practicing Yoga Nidra supports all other practices of yoga and any other complementary treatment modalities.
Contact Karla to create a personalized Yoga Nidra session to address your own individual concerns and needs.
Your Yoga Nidra package consists of two sessions. We'll meet the first time to determine your needs, your wishes, your personal symbols and resonant images and support in creation of your own sankalpa. Many translate this Sanskrit word to mean "intention," but it more accurately translates to mean "deep vow." In Yoga Nidra, your personal sankalpa holds the seeds of the changes you are seeking on every level of being. Your sankalpa will be woven into your personal guided Yoga Nidra along with a beautiful unique journey filled imagery and symbolism that resonates with you personally on all levels of being.
The second session is the experiential session where you receive your personal Yoga Nidra guided by Karla as you deeply relax in your own space.
These sessions are recorded in MP3 formats, or private video, so you can practice your tailormade session whenever you need to connect.
Sessions are $200 for both meetings. Scroll down to email Karla through the contact form to ask any questions or to book your sessions.
~Two Yoga Nidra Gifts for You to Enjoy~
The Journey Into Gratitude is a nearly 45 minute long guided Yoga Nidra. This journey takes you into a forest on a cool crisp autumn day where you will be guided to experience the forest with all your senses. The forest will remind you of gratitude that perhaps you have forgotten and support you gently in experiencing the embodiment of love and a deep sense of gratitude.
It begins with a chant to invoke the awareness of this wholeness. The Purnamadah is the opening sloka (peace verse) from the Ishvara Upanishad, one of the holy Vedic texts, which translates to say, "This is whole, that is whole. When a portion of wholeness is removed, what remains is whole."
You'll move through stages of grounding and settling in, creating intention, followed by a full body scan to deeply relax the nervous system and then you'll experience sensations in the emotional and energy bodies as you move to a deeper level of awareness. These are followed by a guided journey into the bright and beautiful forest where you will encounter your own deep sense of gratitude. Then you'll be guided back to waking consciousness. I hope you enjoy this journey. Peaceful travels.
Sending love, Karla
This is 40 minute long guided yoga nidra. This journey takes us to the Isle of the Ancestors where we can encounter those who've come before us, those ancestors and guides who perhaps we've known in this lifetime as well as those who are loving and supporting us from previous generations, across rivers of time, who live on in our body, our blood, our breath.
I hope you enjoy your journey. OM Shanti, Shanti, Shanti. OM Peace, Peace, Peace. Love, Karla
