Yoga Nidra is a relaxation technique developed by Richard Miller. It consciously takes a person through the different sheaths of their being; physical, energetic, and emotional connecting them to their inner wisdom and knowledge. It is very similar to guided relaxation one might find at the end of a yoga class, but a much deeper experience.
It’s benefits include; enhanced sleep, emotional clarity and healing, and transformations of one’s relationship to sensation and pain. It was originally developed as a strategy to combat PTSD. It supports neural plasticity to create healthy pathways for healing, while maintaining a relaxed awareness of both your inner and outer surroundings.
