The practice of yoga nidra, sometimes translated as “yogic sleep,” has fascinated, soothed, and uplifted me for years.
Its physical and mental health benefits, for example in relation to stress, anxiety, PTSD, muscle tension, and pain management, continue to be researched and well-documented.
Yoga nidra remains a steady companion among the subtle yoga practices that nurture inquiry, deep personal shifts, and meditative experiences.
At a time when the cries of the world are loud and clear, I simply want to offer this concise version of the practice that intends to provide an anchor and a sense of ease and safety at this time.
This guided practice contains the customary welcoming of the whole self to the practice, a rotation of awareness around the body, resting with the breath, and a visualisation based on a personal choice of a familiar, uplifting landscape.
May this practice serve and support you at this time:
