Is Yoga Nidra A Solution To Good Sleep?

Sleep is very vital to everyone. Experts say we need at least 8 hours of sleep without disturbance. This is often difficult to achieve. The practice of yoga nidra (yogic sleep) can be used at bedtime as a sleep aid. It clears stress out to help you go to sleep and stay peacefully asleep. Please keep in mind that true yoga nidra happens when you’re completely relaxed and in a deeply meditative state while remaining alert and aware.

Yoga Nidra For Changing Behavior and Healing

Yoga nidra is very beneficial because it removes fatigue and invigorates the body. It can also help you make positive changes in your personality and lifestyle by using a sankalpa, a personal resolve, during yoga nidra. This is because your bodymind is more receptive to change due to the brain wave states that happen during yoga nidra.
