How to relax

Experience deep relaxation and inner peace with yoga nidra, the practice of yogic sleep.

Yoga for relaxation

Looking for a way to unwind after a long day…and find inner peace? Look no further than yoga nidra. Also known as the practice of yogic sleep, this form of movement is magic. Say hello to a state of deep relaxation and meditation.

What is yoga nidra?

Unlike traditional meditation, yoga nidra can be done lying down and is accessible to practitioners of all levels. With numerous benefits—including reducing stress and anxiety, improving sleep quality, and connecting with a deeper level of consciousness—yoga nidra is a powerful tool for cultivating inner peace.

What to expect in a yoga nidra session

Often referred to as “psychic sleep,” yoga nidra is a state of meditation that can be achieved through a guided practice. It’s done lying down, making it a great option for those who struggle with sitting still for extended periods of time.

During a typical yoga nidra session, you’ll be guided through a series of body awareness exercises, breathing techniques, and visualizations. Eventually, leading to a state of deep relaxation. The goal of yoga nidra is to reach a state of conscious awareness where the mind is neither fully awake nor fully asleep. In this state, the mind is able to release any mental or emotional tensions and connect with a deeper level of consciousness.
