Nidra sleep? Add these Yoga Nidra practices to your nightly routine!
Benefits of Yoga Nidra.
Great for Beginners to meditate, those of us needing guided rest for better sleep, easing of pain, and more.
So just to provide a little bit of context, and a little bit of predictability, our Yoga Nidra or our Guided Rest Practice is a form of guided meditation. Still, there is nothing for you to do, except to listen and follow the guidance of the teacher’s voice.
Aside from being relaxing, restorative, and restful, studies have shown that yoga Nidra can also:
reduce PTSD, chronic pain, and chemical dependency
heighten awareness and focus
transform negative habits, behaviors, and ways of thinking
foster feelings of peace, calm, and clarity
help heal trauma
reduce chronic pain
plant seeds for future growth

Since the formative years of the United States, more than one million American Soldiers have given and lost their lives protecting our freedoms and defending our nation’s liberties. Those Americans made the ultimate sacrifice. Veterans Yoga Project recognizes their sacrifice by annually gathering on Memorial Day to light candles in their honor.
We stand where they once stood. We bow to them with gratitude. We speak of their valor. We live.
