Relax into a meditative state.
Yoga Nidra, or yogic sleep, can be thought of as sleeping with awareness which cultivates the ability to completely relax our body and mind. Practicing during the day helps to replenish energy while evening practice improves the quality of night sleep.
Yoga Nidra works as a systematic process that guides the practitioner to deeper states of consciousness as they observe the different aspects and layers of the mind while resting in a state of deep relaxation. With verbal guidance, you will be led into preliminary sleep stages of sleep. The aim is to stay awake while extremely close to the boundary of sleep.
What to expect
