Yoga Nidra: Body Scan

Yoga Nidra is a sleep based meditation that brings you from thinking and doing to feeling and being. Yoga Nidra is beneficial for both the body and the mind.

Below is a 15 minute body scan practice inspired by VETOGA and Dharma Mittra. All you have to do is lay down, close your eyes, and follow the voice that is guiding you. Often times, you will remember certain parts of the Yoga Nidra practice and not others. Even if you don’t remember everything your mind is still absorbing the practice.

If you find that outside noise bothers and distracts you when you’re meditating, don’t fight the noise. The more you try to push it away, the more it will bother you. Become aware of the noise and acknowledge it. Gradually take your attention towards the noisy environment, observe each sound and then return to the voice guiding you. This brings your mind to the present moment and helps you settle down. There will come a point when you transcend any noise, and it stops bothering you.

Intentions vs Goals

We hear the terms goal and intention thrown around like confetti. More often than not, the words become used interchangeably which causes confusion.

Intentions and goals are different yet equally important. An intention is a guiding principle for how you want to be, live, and show up in life. It reflects your sentiment. A goal has a verifiable trajectory. It helps move you forward.

The difference between goals and intentions:
Goals are focused on the future.
Intentions are in the present moment.
Goals are a destination or specific achievement.
Intentions are lived each day, independent of reaching the goal or destination.
Goals are external achievements.
Intentions are internal values.

Intentions guide your vision of what you want out of life. Goals bring structure to your vision. By partnering goals with intentions, you will become one of the few people in life who enjoy the journey as much as the destination.
