Yoga Nidra › Lucy McCarthy
Yoga Nidra is also known as yogic sleep but is in fact a state of consciousness between waking and sleeping in which the body and mind are fully relaxed and which is conducive to emotional and physical healing. It works by following a guided relaxation and is an effective tool for deep rest and connection. Yoga Nidra can help to improve sleep, reduce stress and anxiety, help us to centre ourselves and find the truths hidden within our hearts. Before practicing yoga nidra, you may wish to prepare your body for stillness with some gentle practices such as Hatha Yoga, yin yoga or restorative yoga. We also recommend you to try meditation and breath work.
