Zürich: Yoga Nidra and Sound Healing
Zürich: Yoga Nidra and Sound Healing
What is Sound Healing?
Sound Healing is the specific and intentional use of frequencies to promote healing and balance. It addresses and aligns various planes of our existence, from the physical to the emotional and spiritual level by using different instruments and the voice. In a way, it helps us to be more in tune with the ourselves and in sync with the natural laws, structure and order of the cosmos. Our bodies have a natural ability to heal and regenerate themselves, to recreate order, balance and harmony. Our bodies naturally seek homeostasis and want to be in tune, but many factors can hinder this natural process such as pollutants and toxins, lifestyle, diet, lack of movement or mind state. Sound affects us on so many different levels, from the cellular function to the tissues, hormones, brain waves and the flow of energy in our body. It does not only work within the body, but also on the aura - our energy field, the bioelectrical field around the body. Sound can trigger bodily responses by changing brain chemicals. It can alter our heart rate, blood pressure, our emotional state and muscle tension.
Effects of Sound Healing include:
lowered blood pressure
soothing nervous system
more coherence in the brain waves
deepening meditative states, calming the mind
inducing higher states of consciousness
What is Yoga Nidra?
Yoga nidra is a profoundly restorative form of meditation that enables your brain to experience delta waves that usually only appear in deep dreamless sleep. Yoga nidra sets in motion powerful regeneration processes on a cellular level and brings about a feeling of ease and relaxation.
Synergistically, these two approaches will make any physical, mental and emotional stress effortlessly dissolve and evaporate, leaving you with a feeling of calm, peace and serenity.
Join us and give yourself, your brain and your nervous system a gift of rest and regeneration.
