Yoga Nidra, or yogic sleep as it is commonly known, is an immensely powerful meditation technique, and one of the easiest yoga practices to develop and maintain.
While you rest comfortably in savasana (corpse pose), this systematic meditation takes you through the Pancha Maya Kosha (five layers of self), leaving you with a sense of wholeness. The stages of body scan and breath awareness can be practiced alone to calm the nervous system, leading to less stress and better health.
Yoga Nidra can be effective in assisting treatments for ailments such as post-traumatic stress, addiction, anxiety, insomnia, depression, burnout, pain, migraine and asthma. The relaxing effect of one hour of Yoga Nidra equals three hours of sleep.
Regular Yoga Nidra practice will help you to stay calm and focused in challenging and stressful situations.
Yoga Nidra is accessible to everyone. You do not need experience with meditation or yoga.
At the beginning of a class you take your time to find a pleasant, lying posture. Once you’re comfortable, you listen to the voice of the teacher who will talk you through a structured meditation. After your practice, you’ll feel wonderfully relaxed.
