    E25 Happiness Practice 4: Yoga Nidra

    E25 Happiness Practice 4: Yoga Nidra

    Hosted by Rosaria Cirillo, in this “Happiness practice” (5 to 30-minute recording in which we guide you through one practice that contributes to our happiness or increases our awareness), we recorded a guided #yoganidra session.



    This practice includes the following stages:


    Getting ready with our body, breath, mind, and emotions
    Making a resolution/setting an intention
    Doing a body scan
    Focusing on breath awareness
    Going through a visualization
    Going through different senses' perception
    Repeating the resolution/intention
    Returning back to normal



    This session has been validated with Himalayan gurus during my Yoga TT in Nepal, about which I shared more in episode 21 and in this blog post ⁠15 takeaways from my Yoga Teacher training & journey in Nepal⁠.

    In the wider yoga wisdom, Yoga Nidra is one of the stages of Raya Yoga, about which we shared more in the blog post ⁠What is Yoga and what are the 16 types of Yoga connected to 7 chakras⁠ ⁠

    In previous episode 24, we shared more about the theory behind this practice, sharing:

    🌻 a poem written by Swami Satyananda Saraswati

    🌻 a shortened abstract from the article “The Origin and Clinical Relevance of Yoga Nidra” published in 2022 on ⁠PubmedCentral⁠

    🌻 A few key insights from the book Yoga Nidra by Swami Satyananda Saraswati, focusing on the four main benefits of Yoga Nidra.



    We hope you find both episodes insightful and helpful, and we look forward to hearing your feedback either in the Q&A session on Spotify or by sending us an email at podcast@wownow.eu!

    E24 Happiness Insight 4: Yoga Nidra

    E24 Happiness Insight 4: Yoga Nidra

    Hosted by Rosaria Cirillo, in this “Insight episode” (20 to 30 minutes recording in which we share in-depth content about happiness, what contributes to our happiness, and how businesses can do their part in contributing to the happiness of their employees, customers, or society) I share with you a bit of background and theory about Yoga Nidra, a great well-being practice I first learned about during pregnancy Yoga classes in 2010, then during the Laughter Yoga Teacher Training in 2021, and then again during my Yoga TT in Nepal, about which I shared more in episode 21 and in this blog post  15 takeaways from my Yoga Teacher training & journey in Nepal.

    In the wider yoga wisdom, Yoga Nidra is one of the stages of Raya Yoga, about which we shared more in the blog post What is Yoga and what are the 16 types of Yoga connected to 7 chakras

    In this episode, I share:

    🌻 a poem written by Swami Satyananda Saraswati

    🌻 a shortened abstract from the article “The Origin and Clinical Relevance of Yoga Nidra” published in 2022 on PubmedCentral

    🌻 A few key insights from the book Yoga Nidra by Swami Satyananda Saraswati, focusing on the four main benefits of Yoga Nidra:


    It’s a powerful relaxation and recharge technique, that releases all three basic types of tension that are responsible for all the agonies of modern life: Muscular, Emotional, and Mental tension
    It’s a great Mind Programming Technique
    It’s a great Gateway to Meditation
    It’s so easy anyone Can Do it  

    In the next episode (25), we recorded a guided meditation, so that you can use that track as often as you like without having to fast forward through the theory.

    We hope you find it insightful, and we look forward to hearing your feedback either in the Q&A session on Spotify or by sending us an email at podcast@wownow.eu!

    E20 Interview 9. Meet Alwin Put, Author, Captain, Trainer & Speaker talking about Facilitative Leadership & Empathy

    E20 Interview 9. Meet Alwin Put, Author, Captain, Trainer & Speaker talking about Facilitative Leadership & Empathy

    Welcome! In today's episode, our guest is Alwin Put, the author of Captains of Leadership: Build your Facilitative Confidence, a Design Thinking expert, sought-after facilitator, trainer, and speaker. He has a long track record in Marketing & Brand Strategy, working with start-ups, scale-ups, corporates, and his own ventures. His book summarises his learnings when leading co-creation sessions with countless people from all kinds of organizations. 



    I first met Alwin while I was delivering a workshop on using the science of Happiness in Business during the Design Thinking Conference in Amsterdam in 2019. Later on, I followed his journey of publishing his book Captains Of Leadership –which I loved and I highly recommend reading - and last year I followed two of his courses, one on Facilitative Leadership and one on Breathing work. He fully embodies and applies in his work what I call HCX: Human-Centered, Happiness-Contributing, and Heart-Centered Experience, and I’m glad to have had him on the podcast to share just a pinch of his wisdom with our audience.



    Alwin in 6 sentences:

    💛 I am a father of two sons and a husband to an amazing woman living in the area of Belgium which is close to the Netherlands and Germany.

    💛 I love reading and writing, movies, theatre, concerts, and basically everything that conveys stories.

    💛 I have been exploring the concept of spirituality since my teens and I have spent half of my life in corporate environments and some but too little in start-up environments

    💛 I honestly hate parsnip, it really makes me nauseous which is one of the strangest words to write in English 

    💛 I wish I could turn the whole world into Captains of Leadership. If that happened I would finally watch the news again

    💛 To me, happiness contribution means making other people happy



    Here is a glimpse of some of the topics covered in this episode:

    🌻 Definition of Happiness & his Yellow Factor Inward and Outward,

    🌻Empathy, Autonomy, and Purpose,

    🌻 Facilitative Leadership,

    🌻 Importance and impact of managing our own state

    🌻 3 key steps of facilitation: Guide, Conduct, Catalyze

    🌻 3 key steps of facilitation

    🌻 Golden nugget: there is no truth in life, everything changes continuously and there are just different perspectives. Facilitation is about the celebration of different perspectives. There is just creation, and life keeps changing and evolving.
