Relaxation is one of the most important skills you can learn through your yoga practice. And better still, you don’t need to go anywhere. You can start practising right now in the comfort of your own home. On this page you will find a 20 minute relaxation and a full Yoga Nidra practice of 40 minutes to help you rest and recharge.
I recorded these when I was living and working in New Zealand … so I may sound a little Kiwi-fied!!
Find a comfortable place to relax – traditionally on the ground stretched out in Savasana (Corpse Pose, as in photo) but you can do this lying in bed or on the sofa or legs up the wall…. somewhere you can remain comfortable and warm (grab your warm socks and favourite blanket!) for 20-40 minutes. If you have trouble sleeping, try it at night as you are going to bed…
Regular practice of relaxation, yoga nidra or meditation reduces stress and creates more mental space.
