Relaxing in savasana is the favorite part of class for many students. But for some, it’s the most difficult part. Lie down, relax, boom, it just doesn’t happen for many people (just like sleep doesn’t always come when you want it!). A guided practice of Yoga Nidra (yoga sleep) is a wonderful way to train your body to relax. I always lead a short guided practice at the end of my classes, but lately have offered longer practice in certain classes.
Yoga Nidra is my favorite practice when done in its longer form. I’ll teach it in an upcoming class, but in the meantime, you can also do your own practice by using my recorded Yoga Nidra. It’s said that 20 minutes of Yoga Nidra equals 3 hours of sleep. Try it! All our YouTube videos are offered freely, so everyone can participate without cost.
