Yoga Nidra Training
Yoga Nidra is a fairly simple technique that can be learned by listening to a tape cassette. However, it is better for beginners to Yoga Nidra training with an experienced teacher. Regular practice alone with the sound recording, first made in the classroom to help students understand the technique, and remember all the instructions mentor effortlessly. In deep relaxation student quickly learned the content, nature and sequence of instructions. This unconscious, spontaneous process of learning is more effective than rational understanding, which may in fact rather prevent a successful practice.
Physiologically, Yoga Nidra has no contraindications, because by itself does not include the power of practice. However, younger students might just fall asleep. The brain is accustomed to the fact that if we lay down and closed my eyes, I mean - it's time to sleep. This is certainly useful, but does not give the full effect of Yoga Nidra. For beginners it is better to practice Yoga Nidra training with the teacher.
Teacher knows what type of practice is more appropriate student and is able to adapt it to his abilities. For example, if it is intense, it offers relaxation techniques, but if he relaxes quickly, he can move on to the meditative technique. It happens that sleep not only in Yoga Nidra, but during concentration and meditation. From 10% to 50% of meditative practice time spend in a dream. The same can happen when practicing Yoga Nidra especially alone, but during the classroom teacher at the right time can prevent sleep reminder "not to sleep, please." However, if someone is still asleep - nothing wrong with that, but for the development of the practice needs conscious, alert PA. If you do not have a teacher - be content with a good sound recording of his instructions to the class.
