What is Yoga Nidra?
Yoga Nidra is a guided lying down meditation practice for deep relaxation and personal insight. It helps with insomnia and stress, life challenges, next steps and connects us to our true nature. Nidra means sleep. In yoga Nidra you retain awareness while allowing the mind waves to slow to the frequency of dream and deep sleep. Your system is able to rest deeply while accessing the subconscious.
Bring a notebook and pen if you want to write notes and warm clothing layers. If you have a bolster or cushions, blanket and eye pillow have them nearby.
