YOGA NIDRA with Dominique

Yoga Nidra, known in familiar terms as 'yogic sleep', is an ancient practice that is becoming popular and sought-after in the West. In Yoga Nidra, the body and mind are in a deeply relaxed state. The intention is for the conscious mind to move to a meditative state, eventually coming into harmony with the subconscious and unconscious parts of the mind. Yoga Nidra allows you to access this powerful synchronization to holistically help with needs that are physical, neurological and subliminal.
