13 Minutes Yoga Nidra for Deep Relaxation



Namaste Yogi,

Welcome to 13 Min iRest Style Yoga Nidra.

Yoga Nidra is also known as Yoga of Sleep. This practice is designed to take you into a state of deep relaxation.

The script I used in this recording is adopted from My Vinyasa Practice Teacher Training that I did last year. I hope you will enjoy it.

Dr Richard Miller created iRest and has had great success working with the military in the US to help treat PTSD (post-traumatic stress disorder).

This type of Yoga Nidra is known for being an effective tool for treating stress, anxiety, depression and PTSD. I hope it will serve you well.

Now, please find a comfortable position on your back (Savasana) and set yourself up for 13 minutes of deep relaxation.

Savasana, also known as Corpse Pose in yoga is a comfortable laying position on the back. Legs spread apart, feet are relaxed and gently dropping to the right and left, arms relaxed along the body, palms relaxed and facing up. Head, shoulders and neck relaxed resting on the surface underneath. Eyes are usually closed, however, if you don’t feel safe with eyes closed you may keep you soft gaze on the tip of your nose or a selected point above you.

Please use any props that may make you more comfortable. You may like to cover your body with a blanket or place a bolster or rolled blanket under your knees or use something to support your neck and head.

In Yoga Nidra, there is no physical movement required, and it is suitable for all levels of practitioners.

Relax and enjoy your peaceful practice.

Love and Peace,
Ewa xx
