Yoga Nidra is a simple and elegant guided relaxation process, a research-based transformative practice of deep relaxation and meditative inquiry that releases negative emotions and thought patterns, calms the nervous system, and develops a deep capacity to meet any and all circumstances you may encounter in life. Research shows that Yoga Nidra effectively reduces Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, depression, anxiety, insomnia, Attention Deficit Disorder and Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, chronic pain, chemical dependency, and daily stress levels. It is also helpful with increasing energy levels, focus and attention span, confidence, clarity, and an overall sense of calm and peace.
At the very least, students have reported a sense of “shedding their skin” as they come out of a Yoga Nidra session. Others find solace and peace from issues they’ve been struggling with in their lives as they find perspective and clarity through this modality.
