Prepare for the most glorious, restful experience with Victoria’s beautiful Yoga Nidra
Yoga Nidra is a gentle guided meditation which allows you to experience a deep meditative state. The intention for this practice is to encourage the student into a state of dynamic stillness allowing the body to rest and restore whilst the mind remains alert. It can be particularly beneficial for those who may experience stress, anxiety and insomnia. However you don’t have to be experiencing any of these conditions to feel the benefit. Yoga Nidra is suitable for most people, however, caution must be taken with a past medical history of psychosis. Ensure you are able to be completely comfortable and warm to encourage stillness. Props needed. Warm clothing, pillow, blanket, support for knees.
