Close your eyes, get comfortable, and follow along with the instructions. Even if sleep does not come, Yoga Nidra will give you much more rest than a night of tossing and turning in bed. Did you know that one hour of Yoga Nidra can equal up to four hours of sleep?
This video includes a dark screen, ensuring that the video complements your bedtime routine and does not cause any disturbances. Unlike other Yoga Nidra sessions, there is no guidance to lead you out of the Yoga Nidra meditation and this means that you can seamlessly transition into a profound and undisturbed slumber. This Yoga Nidra is guided by Ailsa’s female voice with a soft Scottish accent and there is no music accompanying the meditation.
Yoga Nidra is a form of guided meditation practised lying down that leads you into a healing and deeply restful state. Yoga Nidra has been shown to be effective in scientific trials for conditions including chronic pain, sleep problems, depression and anxiety, and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD); while increasing health, resiliency and well-being. This practice, encompassing elements like body scans, stress relief, and anxiety reduction, provides an all-encompassing solution for concerns related to insomnia. The unique approach of Yoga Nidra is known for fostering non-sleep deep rest (NSDR) and helps to encourage the onset of sleep. Yoga Nidra serves as a form of sleep hypnosis, ushering you into a peaceful slumber or an invigorating nap as desired.
