3 Ways Everyone Can Benefit from Yoga Nidra

1. Enhance Your Nightly Sleep Cycle

Do you experience nights of sleep that are not very deep? If so, Yoga Nidra is a blessing because it will facilitate the process of mind and body restoration that occurs during a night of sound sleep. In fact, this yoga practice can actually compensate for the healing, slow-wave cycles that release cell and tissue repairing hormones. A single hour of Yoga Nidra can be as restful as four hours sleep!  

2. Mind & Body Harmonization

When you experience mind and body de-harmonization, you may notice that you quickly become the eternal witness – moving through the actions of your daily life in a bit of a fog. Yoga Nidra unites the mind and body through the practice of body awareness and mental relaxation. This guided meditation offers you the opportunity to visualize your body, from head to toe  -- undergoing a journey of observing and feeling your entire Being through your mind’s eye. When we are connected to our own bodies, we experience divine harmony. 

3. Making Intentional Dietary Choices

Have you ever observed that when you are feeling lethargic, wholesome snacks, drinks, or meals are usually not your first choice? Do you experience cravings that serve solely as a transient, boost of energy? Sometimes we choose unhealthy snacks or meals simply because we are tired and are in need of a pick-me-up. The practice of Yoga Nidra is a mental refresher; waking up from Nidra stimulates awareness of our actions. When you’re going throughout your day from a place of mental clarity due to sufficient rest, you’re more likely to make intentional dietary choices.
