The term “trauma” is commonly used nowadays. Initially, it may bring to mind physical injuries sustained during an accident. However, trauma can also be caused by an experience that shocks the body without leaving any visible scars. Such experiences can occur during childhood or even in adulthood. The outcome is that the body and mind retain the memory of the shock. Whenever a similar situation arises, the body and mind respond in the same way to keep you safe. Practicing Yoga Nidra with a specific intention can help shift your reaction from a trauma response to greater awareness. By focusing on your breath and repeating your intention, you can reduce stress and experience more peace.
