Yoga Nidra offers the experience of deep, meditative relaxation. You will rest deeply in savasana during guided meditation in a state between sleeping and awake, and will find a complete release of all body tension and a deeper level of consciousness, allowing you to access the deepest levels of your mind and examine your long held beliefs and habits. Those who practice Yoga Nidra report better sleep patterns, recovery from stress and anxiety, and a deeper, more meaningful yoga practice, as well as improved relationships with others. You have to try it at least once to truly understand what it’s about. Deepen your experience by coming to more than one. Words simply cannot capture it!
