Yoga nidra (also known as yogic sleep) is a powerful technique for controlling your body's relaxation response. Yoga nidra can be as restorative as sleep, while you remain fully conscious. Cultivate conscious relaxation, ease ongoing stress and anxiety, and feel your body melt away into a soothing state of being.  

Performing yoga nidra involves practicing pratyahara ("withdrawal of the senses"), which is the fifth limb of Ashtanga yoga.

Yoga nidra practice results in deep relaxation and expands the individual's self-awareness.

Yoga nidra offers amazing health benefits including:

  • Calms the mind

  • Relaxes and rejuvenates the body

  • Soothes the nervous system

  • Reduces fatigue

  • Lowers high cholesterol and blood pressure levels

  • Strengthens immunity

  • Improves quality of sleep

  • Treats depression

  • Reduces pain

  • Boosts concentration level

  • Supports brain function and boosts creativity
