Lovejoy Yoga Nidra is a journeying practice rooted in tantric yoga, trauma hypnotherapy & indigenous wisdom.
Yoga Nidra is an invaluable tool for our total wellbeing in a world that asks so much of us. The premise of Yoga Nidra is that we are already whole, that all parts of us are welcome, and that as we find liberation from the patterns of fear, shame and separation that we've been programmed with, we can remember the truth of our essence and tap into our innate spiritual power and bliss.
Yoga Nidra's healing potential comes from how this practice guides the release of tension on all levels (physical, mental, emotional, energetic, spiritual). This meditation and energy healing modality promotes physiological and emotional wellbeing, assists in the unraveling of karma, and opens the door to expanded states of consciousness. It can be used for spiritual development, for therapeutic applications, or to rebalance the sleep cycle and healthy body function. It is an ancient system that has become more relevant and necessary than ever as a tool for the healing of humanity.
Lovejoy Yoga Nidra is a practice of weaving together consciousness to support liberation, expansion, and empowerment. This system is influenced by the teachings I have received through a decade of yoga, hypnotherapy, trauma healing and shamanic studies. Like all parts of nature, Lovejoy Yoga Nidra is an ever evolving system guided by continual exploration of the healing potential of altered states of consciousness and a balanced nervous system. This style of Yoga Nidra is a systematic journeying practice that explores and clears different levels of consciousness, while supporting the grounding of spiritual energy into the physical body. This practice activates and maintains healthy functioning on body, mind, energy, and soul levels. The intention of Lovejoy Yoga Nidra is to support our personal and collective liberation, empowerment, creativity, unconditional love, and joy of being.
