cultivate calm podcast

I have a special treat for you today, which I know you’re going to love. In this episode, I’m guiding you through a Yoga Nidra meditation to bring your mind and body into a beautiful state of relaxation and calm.

Yoga Nidra is often referred to as yoga sleep. It’s a deep relaxation exercise where you’re guided to rotate your consciousness through different parts of your body.  This rotation of consciousness is an old yoga technique designed to slow down our brainwave frequency, which is the speed at which our brain cells communicate with one another. Doing this brings both your mind and body into a deep state of relaxation.

There are so many benefits to Yoga Nidra. It helps reduce stress, anxiety, and tension by bringing you into a state of deep restfulness, and regular practice can also enhance the quality of your sleep, helping you feel more rejuvenated.

Through a body scan technique, this guided Yoga Nidra meditation will also help you cultivate more self-awareness and mindfulness, allowing you to observe your thoughts and emotions without judgment, leading to greater self-love and compassion.

Do your best to follow along, and if you drift off to sleep, that’s more than okay. The only thing that really matters here is that you are honouring your need for rest.

So find a place to lie down where you won’t be disturbed. Once you’re as comfortable as you can be with pillows, blankets and the lights down low, let’s begin.
