If you are reading this, your brain waves are in the beta state. Most meditation involves slowing down the alpha brain waves. This usually produces a relaxed mental state and, over time, a greater ability to not be dominated by our thoughts. Very experienced meditators may reach brain waves at the gamma level.
Yoga Nidra is a super charged form of guided meditation. It takes you from the beta state through the theta, alpha, and delta brain wave states. At the delta level, you should not be asleep, but in a state of deep calm and relaxation. Yoga practitioners often say that 1/2 an hour of Yoga Nidra is the same as about two hours of actual sleep. Not only can it help you to sleep better, once the Yoga Nidra session is finished, you are likely to feel a deep sense of calm at the same time as feeling refreshed.
Please ask if you have any questions about meditation or Yoga Nidra, or send a message.
