EXPERIENCE DEEP RELAXATION WITH YOGA NIDRA

 

What is Yoga Nidra?

Yoga nidra or yogic sleep is a state of consciousness between waking and sleeping, like the "going-to-sleep" stage, typically induced by a guided meditation.

There is evidence that yoga nidra helps relieve stress. 

Reported potential effects and benefits:

  • endogenous dopamine release

  • balance in autonomic nervous system

  • reduction of tension and anxiety

  • reduction of headaches

  • reduction of effects of stress

  • treatment of PTSD symptoms

  • improved self-esteem in students
