Yoga Nidra for Self-Healing with Kellen. Yoga Nidra is a state of consciousness in which our body is asleep, and our mind is in a state of relaxation with expanded awareness; similar to that of deep meditation. In this form of consciousness, our mind and body are able to renew and heal.  Done entirely lying down in a comfortable position, students are guided through an extensive body scan which allows for deep relaxation. As the body relaxes and releases tension, and the mind stills, our own healing energy is able to move freely, promoting optimal health. Yoga Nidra has been proven to regulate the nervous system, reverse heart disease, improve sleep, enhance awareness, as well as many other physical, emotional and mental benefits.
