Yoga nidra (“yoga rest” or “yoga sleep”) is a relaxation technique that has become very popular in last few years. It is used as a way of reducing stress, can help with insomnia, anxiety, migraine etc.
There are different stages in performing yoga nidra, but we will introduce simple techniques that you can practice safely in the privacy of your home and whose primary goal is to help you relax and let go off stress. It takes only 15-20 minutes a day, and you can practice whenever is convenient.
The temperature should be around 20°C (68.2° F). Put on some comfortable, loose cloth and prepare a blanket in case you are cold. It is recommended, but not obligatory to wash your teeth, and rinse your face and nose before practicing, as well as practice on an empty or half-full stomach (so you wouldn’t doze off).
It is normal and it happens to all beginners. Actually, you should be satisfied, because it shows that you’ve managed to relax completely. Later on, as you become more proficient in doing yoga nidra at home, you can start breathing through chakras and use visualization techniques to get even better results.
