Yoga Nidra (Deep Relaxation) with Stefania

Yoga Nidra means psychic sleep and it is one of the most powerful meditation techniques, because it induces a profoundly deep state of rest. This yogic technique is practiced in the lying position and while The body is completely relaxed, the practitioner turns the awareness inward by listening to a set of instructions; much like a guided meditation. It is effortless, enjoyable, soothing and recuperative. The way it is practiced by Stefania, Yoga Nidra takes your awareness deep into parts of you that tension often prevents you from accessing. As you systematically relax each part of your physical body and move your awareness to your subtle layers, emotions, and deeper mind, you gain access to innate knowledge and wisdom. During this sessions, Stefania also uses the Sankalpa (positive affirmation), which in such a deep state of consciousness has an incredible powers to positively transform your life.
