Yoga in Swakopmund

Join us for an hour of Yin Yoga followed by 30 - 35 minutes of Yoga Nidra at Urban Zen Yoga studio - Swakopmund. Yoga nidra or yogic sleep is a state of consciousness between waking and sleeping, like the “ going-to-sleep” stage, typically induced by a guided meditation. The teacher will guide you, usually for around 35 minutes. It is an immensely powerful meditation technique, and one of the easiest yoga practices to develop and maintain. While the practitioner rests comfortably in savasana (corpse pose), this systematic meditation takes you through the pancha maya kosha (five layers of self), leaving you with a sense of wholeness. The relaxation response balances the sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous systems, and balances the left and right brain. In the process, your brain shifts from beta, an awakened state with lots of brain activity, to alpha, and a more relaxed state. In alpha, the mood-regulating hormone serotonin gets released, and this calms you down. People who spend little time in an alpha brain-wave state have more anxiety than those who spend more time in alpha.
