Yoga Nidra translates to Yogic Sleep. It’s a deeply restful Yoga practice, and a very effective way to rest and restore.
In this class, unlike others, you find a cosy spot to snuggle under your very own blanket. Bolsters and eye pillows make the experience extra comfortable. With your eyes closed, the teacher will take you on a journey through what they say, and with periods of silence. You’ll take your attention into different areas of your body, and drift into a meditative state from there.
Students report entering a blissful state between wakefulness and sleeping, like a Yoga sleep. However if you’re generally fatigued or frazzled don’t be surprised if you end up napping! That’s okay, that’s what your body needs at that time. This Nidra Yoga relaxation technique has been found to reduce tension and anxiety, and help people sleep better at home.
