If you find it difficult to regularly fall asleep at night or find yourself waking up in the middle of the night not able to fall back asleep, here is a simple solution that only requires you to lie down and listen effortlessly. No Yoga or meditation experience is required. This practice is beneficial to anyone, but especially for people who do shift work like firefighters, police, doctors & nurses and those who live with Insomnia, anxiety or depression.
For many people, as they age, it becomes increasingly challenging to experience a good deep sleep where one wakes up feeling refreshed and energized in the mornings. A reason for this is the level of brainwave that is dominantly taking space during sleep called Alpha. When a person is dominantly sleeping in this state and doesn’t get enough hours of sleep, it can lead to a variety of physical, emotional & mental shortcomings such as Sleep Deprivation, Insomnia, poor decision-making & learning abilities, mood swings & accelerated aging of the body.
Yoga Nidra is a sleep-based guided meditation that has the capability of effortlessly bringing a person into very relaxing, restorative & healing states of rest while still being consciously aware. Yoga Nidra is a systematic and safe practice for reducing and releasing the grip of a busy mind and bringing the body, immune system & nervous system into complete relaxation and equilibrium.
