Yoga Nidra for Sleep and Anxiety Meditation

Yoga Nidra is a form of guided sleep meditation for anxiety reduction that allows one to relax into a sleep-like state. Think of it as one of the deepest forms of relaxation - the body and mind are able to rest while the consciousness remains awake and able to journey through different levels of being. It helps to regulate everything from heart rate to digestion and blood flow. Combined with our halotherapy services, this natural process can be incredibly healing. Yoga Nidra is especially known as an effective stress and anxiety reducer.

What is the Difference Between Yoga Nidra and Meditation?

Mediation and Yoga Nidra have some elements in common, considering they are both a form of guided meditation commonly used for anxiety and sleep.  Both use breathwork to connect to the deeper systems of the body. Despite overlaps, the two guided meditations are very different from each other as well.

Meditation involves sitting and trying to get to the state we enter in during a deep sleep cycle. Yoga Nidra, on the other hand, asks us to lie down as we take one step deeper into a healing state. While meditation creates inner calm by focusing awareness on a single thing, yoga nidra involves entering a sleep-like state in order to journey through multiple layers to finally reach one’s true sense of self. It is here in this guided sleep meditation that one can find relief from anxiety and stress.
