YOGA NIDRA FOR ANXIETY & PTSD
YOGA NIDRA FOR ANXIETY & PTSD
Yoga Nidra means "yogic sleep." It is a systematic relaxation technique that brings you into a state of consciousness where you are floating midway between waking and sleeping. This allows the subconscious and conscious mind to integrate. This integration can be profoundly healing for mind, body and spirit.
Yoga Nidra is a guided meditation practice that always begins with physical relaxation. Relaxing the body relaxes the mind. Unlike most meditation techniques, Yoga Nidra requires no concentration, and it's impossible to do it wrong. This is the easiest meditation practice you will ever do! All you need to do is lie back and listen to my voice.

MY PERSONAL JOURNEY WITH YOGA NIDRA:
When I first began practicing Yoga Nidra, I didn't know too much about it. All I really knew was that it was supposed to help me relax, which I needed. Badly. At the time, I was experiencing insomnia, anxiety, night-terrors, dissociation, hypervigilance, and emotional flashbacks - all the hallmark signs of Complex PTSD. At first, I didn't think there was anything I could do for these symptoms outside of seeing a therapist. To my surprise, after a few months of practicing Yoga Nidra on a regular basis, I saw a drastic reduction in these symptoms. The night-terrors I used to experience two or three times a week are now completely GONE, and Yoga Nidra has had more of a positive impact on my other symptoms than any other therapies I had tried.
Now I know that the reason Yoga Nidra works so well for PTSD is because it helps the conscious and the subconscious mind to integrate. When we experience PTSD, it is because our consciousness has been fragmented, and our minds are desperately trying to integrate our past memories into our current reality. Yoga Nidra allows the mind to heal, and I talk about this in more detail in the booklet that comes with this Yoga Nidra download.
Everyone's experience with Yoga Nidra is unique. I can't guarantee that yours will be the same as mine, but I would be shocked if you did not receive some benefit from this practice.
