    N.097 Yoga Nidra for Addiction Recovery | Healing Sleep Series

    Whether you're navigating the challenges of substance abuse, technology dependency, food-related struggles, or other forms of addiction, this Yoga Nidra session is designed to support you on your healing journey. Join Ayla Nova in this healing practice and discover compassionate understanding inspired by the insightful teachings of Dr. Gabor Maté.

    Together, we'll explore the multifaceted nature of addiction—acknowledging it as a reaction to underlying pain, longing, or unmet needs—rather than viewing it as a personal failing. This practice is an invitation to all, regardless of the specific challenges you face, offering a pathway through the difficulties of addiction with grace and self-compassion.

    'Addiction is not a choice that anybody makes; it’s not a moral failure. What it actually is: it’s a response to human suffering.'
    — Dr. Gabor Maté

    🌙 Session Focus:
    • Healing and Self-Renewal: Addressing the roots of addiction to foster healing and renewal.
    • Radical Self-Acceptance: Cultivating self-acceptance for inner peace amidst life's adversities.
    • Deep Relaxation: Enhancing sleep and self-connection through profound relaxation.

    N.095 The Ultimate Insomnia Sleep Aid | Yoga Nidra | Healing Sleep Series

    Join me, Ayla Nova, on a restful journey through the practice of Yoga Nidra; together, we dive into the depths of stillness and peace for a deep restorative sleep. Drawing from the wisdom of Lao Tzu, we're reminded that a quiet mind unveils the universe's secrets, offering a path to deep rest and self-discovery. As you lay down, align your body and turn your attention inward to anchor you in the present. This session explores the inner self, a guided journey through the body that encourages every part to unwind. Through this practice, we connect with our Sankalpa—our innermost intentions and desires—integrating them into our being. This experience is an invitation to encounter the tranquillity within, leading to profound relaxation and a renewed sense of awareness.

    Thank you for being here.

    N.094 Yoga Nidra for Chronic Pain | Healing Sleep Series

    This is a Yoga Nidra session dedicated to those navigating the challenges of chronic pain.  As we gently align our bodies and open our hearts, we begin a journey of acceptance and healing. This practice focuses on recovery, offering a space where pain and discomfort are acknowledged with compassion and transformed into gateways for deep healing. 

    Through guided relaxation, breath awareness, and visualization, we create an environment that supports the easing of physical tension. Here, in the embrace of Yoga Nidra, you'll find a peaceful refuge that encourages the flow of healing energy, nurturing your body's innate ability to heal itself. 

    Together, we'll explore the power of presence and radical self-acceptance, illuminating a path to wellness created for your healing journey. As a cancer survivor, I understand the debilitating suffering that comes with chronic pain. This has been created with so much love and compassion as you explore the inner world of this journey.

    Thank you for being here.

Fantastic sleep aid

Never had trouble getting to sleep but staying asleep was another story. Since finding this podcast I am sleeping like a baby, rarely waking during the night and feeling more refreshed in the mornings. It feels almost hypnotic.
