Commonly known as "yogic sleep", Yoga Nidra meditation is a powerful, guided technique involving lying in Savasana (resting or corpse pose) and following a guide’s voice. Yoga Nidra offers a safe space to be present and release long-held emotions or thought-blockages. The practice will begin with a few gentle yoga stretches to warm up before the start of the Nidra. Please dress comfortably and warm — wear socks/layers and consider bringing a blanket(s) and pillow.
