The Power Of A Sankalpa (A Resolve)

The Power Of A Sankalpa (A Resolve)

In the practice of Yoga Nidra, you are asked to mentally repeat a resolution known as a Sankalpa. 

This happens at the beginning and towards the end of the practice and is the ‘cherry on top of the cake’ that makes the practice of Yoga Nidra so special.

Your Sankalpa is a powerful tool to harness the mind. 

It is perfect for achieving your goals, changing behaviours or habits, and directing your life in a more positive direction.

Sankalpa is a Sanskrit word, and the meaning is broken down like this:

  • San is an idea formed in the heart
  • Kalpa is “the rule that I will follow above all other rules”

How it works

Yoga Nidra begins with deep relaxation in the first four stages, moving into a full meditative state in the last four stages. 

This takes us to a place where we can release pain and stress at the unconscious level, and also reinforce positive thoughts and beliefs.
