The Sunday Sanctuary: 30th January 2022

Yoga Nidra Sankalpa (or intention) Explained. In this video, I demonstrate what a Sankalpa (or intention) is, especially related to a Yoga Nidra practice. I also show you how you can create your own Sankalpa and when you can use your intention in your yoga, Yoga Nidra and meditation practice. Sankalpa is the Sanskrit word for intention-setting. Sankalpa means an intention formed by the heart and mind - a solemn vow, determination, or will, a one-pointed resolve to focus both psychologically and philosophically on a specific theme. In every Yoga Nidra and sometimes at the beginning of a yoga class, you are invited to work with a Sankalpa. This intention is intended to be a reminder of why you practise yoga, meditation and/or Yoga Nidra and acts as a tool to help you remain present in your practice. Intentions aim to create focus, determination, motivation, patience, and perseverance. The practice of using an intention during yoga, meditation and Yoga Nidra can offer profound transformation for both your internal landscape and external life. The practice allows you to greet yourself with kindness, compassion, gentleness and in a non-judgemental way. I hope you enjoy learning more about Yoga Nidra Sankalpa or intention-setting! ๐Ÿ™ You can watch the introduction to The Sunday Sanctuary here ๐Ÿ‘‰ https://youtu.be/iHt5gozovdc ๐Ÿ’ ๐Ÿ’ ๐Ÿ’ ๐Ÿ’ ๐Ÿ’ ๐Ÿ’ ๐Ÿ’ ๐Ÿ’ ๐Ÿ’ ๐Ÿ’ ๐Ÿ’ ๐Ÿ’ ๐Ÿ’ ๐Ÿ’ ๐Ÿ’  0:00 introduction 1:37 what is a Sankalpa? 4:18 how to create your own Sankalpa 9:42 when to use your Sankalpa? 11:00 conclusion 12:00 my question to you 14:07 thank you to my patrons ๐Ÿ’ ๐Ÿ’ ๐Ÿ’ ๐Ÿ’ ๐Ÿ’ ๐Ÿ’ ๐Ÿ’ ๐Ÿ’ ๐Ÿ’ ๐Ÿ’ ๐Ÿ’ ๐Ÿ’ ๐Ÿ’ ๐Ÿ’ ๐Ÿ’  You can join in the conversation in the comments of the YouTube video ๐Ÿ‘‰ https://youtu.be/6XVnvvy7AYc

๐Ÿ“ SIGN UP to my email newsletter ๐Ÿ‘‰ https://bit.ly/2PXj7LF If you attend yoga classes regularly, you might have experienced a form of guided meditation that encourages you to sense each part of your body whilst lying down in Savasana. This is, in fact, a Yoga Nidra, or yogic sleep. Yoga Nidra is a form of guided meditation that leads you into the healing and deeply restful state between waking and sleeping. Yoga Nidra is practised lying down, you can even practise Yoga Nidra from the comfort of your bed or the sofa. This form of guided meditation is completely passive and effortless; you aren't trying to achieve anything or move the body into a specific pose or the mind into a specific state. It can be a different experience each time you practise and factors such as the length of the Yoga Nidra (it can range from 5 minutes to a full hour) and the cues that your teacher uses will impact your experience. Yoga Nidra creates space for you to explore different states of consciousness and comprises of body and breath awareness techniques. Yoga Nidra has powerful potential for rest and relaxation as well as profound transformation. I thought it would be useful and interesting to share some of the benefits that Yoga Nidra can offer you.

A Season of NSDR Yoga Nidra

A Season of NSDR Yoga Nidra

Thank you so much for joining me for The Sunday Sanctuary over the past few months. I loved reading your comments and I hope that the series of videos added a touch of ritual to the darker and drearier months of the year (well, certainly, in the UK). I compiled all the videos and created a playlist (https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLjmsXUQ_KWWHS76YykZNiu7LIO89UU-eG) so feel free to check that out if you would like to work your way through the series again or watch any videos that you missed. For my next series of videos, I am delighted to announce that I will be sharing A Season of Yoga Nidra NSDR (Non Sleep Deep Rest). Every Monday, for the next few months, I will be sharing a new Yoga Nidra video on the Ailsa Burns YouTube channel at 5pm (UK time). My Yoga Nidra videos are some of my most popular videos on the channel and I have received countless amounts of feedback about how profoundly Yoga Nidra has helped you. Yoga Nidra also seems to have almost hit the mainstream with the Wall Street Journal reporting that Google CEO, Sundar Pichai, practises NSDR (or Non Sleep Deep Rest; Yoga Nidra is a form of NSDR): https://www.businessinsider.in/careers/news/google-ceo-sundar-pichai-says-he-uses-nsdr-or-non-sleep-deep-rest-to-unwind-heres-what-it-is-and-how-it-works-/articleshow/90021256.cms. With that in mind, I am excited to dedicate more time to creating this style of video for you and I hope that you can join me over the next few months. I will be offering you the opportunity to explore different themes and, of course, including plenty of Yoga Nidra that are specifically designed to help with sleep. I hope that you can join me. Much love, ๐ŸŒ™โœจ๐ŸŒ™ Ailsa ๐ŸŒ™โœจ๐ŸŒ™
