Yoga relaxation (yoga nidra)
Experience yoga relaxation from the comfort of your own home via Zoom. This form of classical yoga nidra helps to reduce anxiety, restore energy levels and promote better sleep.
The ability to relax and let go is vital to your wellbeing. Yoga relaxation can help you release physical and mental tensions exacerbated by the demands and challenges in your daily life, so you can feel truly relaxed, refreshed and rejuvenated in both body and mind.
Your physical and mental health are inextricably linked. Yoga relaxation is a holistic practice supporting your wellbeing on a number of levels (physically, energetically, mentally, emotionally and even spiritually). When pressures around you increase, stress levels can rise impacting your wellbeing and peace of mind, perhaps making it hard to switch off, relax and sleep.
Yoga relaxation, also called yoga nidra (yogic sleep), helps you:
- to release the physical and muscular tensions you hold in your body.
- to relax emotional tensions, which are often unhelpful and deep rooted, to enable you to find a level of calm and equilibrium.
- to calm the constant and excessive mental activity, which creates stress, affecting your ability to think clearly and cope with daily life.
Relaxation is best experienced lying down. Traditionally, this is done on a mat on the floor, but you can also enjoy this practice lying on your bed or sofa, perhaps supported by pillows, cushions and blankets to hold you safe and warm. Alternatively, you can relax in your favourite comfortable armchair. So you don’t need a yoga mat or even watch the screen, just lie back, close your eyes and listen.

Whatever yoga practice you undertake, please be aware the most important thing for you is to listen to your body and work within your physical and mental limits. If you have any health issues (and many of us do), this is particularly important. Be mindful of how you are feeling and only do what feels right for you.
