Nap Room Experience
The research is in. We are more productive throughout the day if we give ourselves an adult time-out and take a nap. Some people say they “can’t nap.” Some people (on vacation) can nap all day. Others can only nap for 20 minutes before 3:00 p.m. We are all different and therefore we all respond differently to daytime rest and have individual levels of need for it. We can all benefit from being still and closing our eyes, even if we don’t lose consciousness. I call this “floating.”
Let’s look at the various definitions of a nap:
- nap – (verb) to sleep lightly or briefly, especially during the day. (noun) a short sleep, especially during the day.
- sleep – the natural periodic suspension of consciousness during which the powers of the body are restored.
- hypnagogic state: the transitional state from wakefulness to sleep; the “borderlands between wakefulness and rest.”
- siesta: a rest or nap, especially one taken during the hottest hours of the day.
Here at Bhadra Yoga, we offer a “nap room experience” on Tuesdays and on Thursdays from 12:00 – 12:45 p.m. We provide a calm, quiet atmosphere, soothing music, a fully supported supine pose for you to “float” in for a fifteen minute body-scan, followed by 30 minutes of dreaming-opportunity. A soft chime will awaken you at 12:45 p.m., and you can then re-enter your day more alert, focused and calm. This equals a more productive and a less reactive you. This is yoga.
