home practice library - Guided Rest (Yoga Nidra)

Yoga Nidra is a type of guided meditation where you lay comfortably still while listening to the instructor and letting your attention be guided through various observations and visualizations. Repeated practice of yoga nidra helps you learn how to relax consciously and to accept thoughts, feelings, urges, and impulses as they are.  Although you are encouraged to stay awake during the yoga nidra practice, many veterans have told us that listening to a yoga nidra practice helps them fall asleep at night.

When you practice yoga nidra, it is best to find a very comfortable reclined position in a safe and comfortable place where you won't be interrupted.  Allow yourself to focus on breath and sensation.
