Yoga Nidra is an ancient practice that originated in India and has since been widely adopted around the world as a popular form of guided meditation. It’s popularity stems from the many benefits that positively impact the mind, body, and soul. In this blog post, I wanted to share with you some of the most significant benefits :
- The top comment I receive from those who attend a Yoga Nidra session is that they slept so well afterwards. It helps the body to deeply relax which can improve sleep quality and quantity.
- This practice guides you into a deep state of relaxation which can also help to reduce stress and anxiety levels. Yoga Nidra helps to calm the nervous system and bring the mind and body to a state of peace.
- As with most things the benefits of Yoga Nidra increase the more you practice. Regular practice of Yoga Nidra can help to improve focus and concentration as it teaches you to be present in the moment, and this develops your ability to focus on tasks at hand.
- Yoga Nidra helps to boost the immune system by reducing stress levels and increasing relaxation. When the body is in a state of deep relaxation it is able to heal and repair itself more effectively.
- Yoga Nidra can improve emotional health by helping the mind to stay calm, centered and balanced.
- Through Yoga Nidra, you learn how to harness your inner healing power for self-healing which helps you to connect and tap into your inner self.
Yoga Nidra is such a great practice and I’m so passionate about the benefits it offers. Practicing it regularly can contribute significantly to improving your quality of life and if you can find a way to incorporate this into your daily or weekly routine you really will notice a difference. If you’re close to me in Stratford Upon Avon please do try and come along to one of my classes. I know that everything can be so expensive at the moment so I try and keep the price low to enable you to practice more regularly but if you would really like to come along and can’t afford to please do get in touch.
I have included here a link to a Yoga Nidra that I recorded, I hope you enjoy it.
