We live in a chronically overstimulated world and Yoga Nidra is one way to help manage the stress of life. Yoga Nidra (which means Yogic Sleep) is an ancient guided meditation practice.
Some benefits of Yoga Nidra meditations include:
Full body relaxation
Increased our awareness and connection with our bodies.
When we experience physical pain, we can begin to tense and contract different parts of the body in response to that pain. Physical discomfort/pain and sleep challenges can commonly occur, especially after traumatic experiences or times when we are experiencing high stress (like a pandemic).
Listening to these Yoga Nidra practices can be very supportive to listen to at the end of the day as you prepare for sleep. It is very common to drift between a dreaming and waking state but do your best to stay awake and with the practice. If the stillness is challenging or if you find it hard to stay awake, feel free to wiggle parts of your body as we scan through as that can often support the practice.
