Yoga Nidra is a type of meditation that helps train the body to relax. It is useful for people suffering from insomnia and anxiety. Aside from helping to decrease stress, it also promotes sleep and can reduce chronic inflammation. In addition, it improves focus, enhances memory, and supports immune function.
Yoga Nidra is based on the ancient Upanishads. Research has shown that it can help people cope with a variety of problems, including PTSD, depression, and sexual trauma.
Yoga Nidra has been used by yogis to connect with God and to improve clarity. It can also facilitate addiction recovery in the early stages. Several studies have found that it has a positive effect on lowering blood pressure and cholesterol, and reducing female hormones.
Studies have also shown that yoga nidra can improve a person’s self-esteem. People who practice this type of meditation report feeling more relaxed and peaceful. They have better body image and are able to handle stressful situations with greater ease.
Yoga Nidra is a great method for self-care, but it isn’t right for everyone. For instance, if you have a mental health condition such as schizophrenia, it may be difficult to experience the benefits of nidra. If you are in a group class, it may be easier to stay in a meditative state.
One of the best things about Yoga Nidra is that it doesn’t take much skill. All you need is a little time and space to meditate.
