In this session you will have the opportunity to experience a long guided savasana to balance the left and right side of the brain, the lunar and solar energies, within your mind/body complex. The more we bring our emotions into a state of balance, the more we can realize the pure state of BEING.
Guided Savasana also known as Yoga Nidra is an immensely powerful technique that takes the practitioner through the Pancha Maya Kosha (five layers of being). Through the practice, we trigger the relaxation response which balances the sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous systems, the left and the right brain, the ida and pingala channels.
In the process the brain will shift from the Beta state (the awake state with lots of brain activity) to the Alpha state. The mood regulating hormone, Serotonin, is released which calms the mind. From Alpha we move even deeper into the Theta state. In this state our thoughts slow down. Many refer to this state as a state of clarity, and in this state emotional integration occurs and structures in the brain begin to change. It is also a state in which we may begin to enter a gap of no-thing-ness, and experience a oneness with all existence.
From this state, we move even deeper into a Delta state. Hear the thoughts slow even more and we enter the most restorative state in which the organs regenerate and the stress hormone cortisol dissipates from the system.
It is said that 45-minutes of yogic sleep, or savasana, is like 3-hours of good sleep. It is different from hypnosis. In hypnosis, the left side of the brain quiets down while the right side activates. In savasana, both sides of the brain begin to synchronize and simultaneously, symmetrically operate from the state of oneness.
The session will conclude with meditation.
