Activity: Yogic Sleep Meditation-9pm EST
Yoga nidra, or yogic sleep, is a meditation and conscious relaxation practice that brings about total physical, mental, and emotional relaxation. In yoga nidra, you are gently guided through four main stages of brain wave activity to hover between the waking and sleeping state of consciousness, the most restorative state for the mind and body. Studies have shown that yoga nidra reduces tension and anxiety, eases insomnia, heightens awareness and focus and fosters feelings of peace, calmness and clarity.
