Restful Medicine: Meditations for Sleep & Wellbeing

Joha Yoga / Elke Johnson

Yoga Nidra is often referred to as Yogic Sleep as it naturally calms your brainwave states to those similar in sleep. This progressive meditative relaxation is effortless so you can deeply rest while thoughts are free to come and go, leaving you feeling fully relaxed and feeling stress-free and well-rested. Yoga Nidra or NSDR (Non Sleep Deep Rest) has been shown to help with insomnia, stress, grief, depression, anxiety, and symptoms/responses from trauma (PTSD) and is used by millions of people every day to find supportive rest. read less

Anxiety is a normal response to stress and can range from being helpful to debilitating. Make space for the mental stress to dissipate and follow the pathway to a clearer and peaceful presence with renewed clarity and a calm and balanced nervous system. Yoga Nidra provides the tools for maintaining a sense of wellbeing and peacefulness, allowing the fluctuations of the mind to slow and return to a state of homeostasis allowing you to drift into a conscious, deep sleep state simply through the guidance through a systematic sequence of soothing and relaxing techniques that increase your awareness and deepens your relaxation.Throughout the practice, you’re providing extra comfort and relaxation throughout the physical body allowing your brainwaves to regulate into a resting, calm, peaceful state that has been shown to help with insomnia, stress, grief, depression, anxiety, and symptoms from PTSD. Yoga Nidra allows you to tap into your very own awareness and experience and there is no wrong way to practice.
