Yoga Nidra (Deep Relaxation) - Part 2

In part 1 of the article, I introduced the concepts and benefits of Yoga Nidra. In today's post, I would like to present the Yoga Nidra practice.

As mentioned in my earlier post, practice of yoga nidra is an integral part of every yoga class that I teach. It is usually practiced after the asana (physical postures) part of the session has been completed.

The routine consists of first tightening and tensing up different parts of the body, one at a time. Then follows a sequence wherein we progressively relax every part of the body while scanning the body from toes to head in a sequential manner. The practice concludes by gradually bringing the body back to breath awareness, then body awareness and finally gently stretching to wake up the body into full awareness.
