YOGA NIDRA- AN OVERVIEW
Yoga Nidra, known as a 'Yogic sleep' is a meditative practice similar to mindfulness. It brings about a transformative state of deep relaxation, stillness and mental calm which rejuvenates and revitalises.
Though its roots lie in thousands of years of philosophies and practices, it is one of the fastest growing practices in the world today. Yoga Nidra is suitable for everyone and can be done anywhere you can lie down.
Ahimsa Yoga has set up a Podcast to introduce you to Yoga Nidra and enable you to get the benefits of the practice easily.
