Yoga Nidra Mindfulness Meditation
Yoga Nidra is a sleep-based mindfulness meditation technique. It doesn't require flexibility, a 'clear mind', or fancy clothes. It only requires that you be still. Yoga Nidra triggers the relaxation response in a profound way, balancing the nervous system, restructuring the brain, and allowing the body to heal. As a sleep-based mindful meditation technique yoga nidra is known for its ability to assist those struggling with insomnia, anxiety, depression, pain, or the effects of trauma in their life. The restorative effect of a yoga nidra session (30-60 minutes) is said to be the restful equivalent of 3-4 hours sleep - something most of us could benefit from!
