Yoga Nidra for Anxiety

Anxiety is a normal response to stress and can range from being helpful to debilitating. Make space for the mental stress to dissipate and follow the pathway to a clearer and peaceful presence with renewed clarity and a calm and balanced nervous system. Yoga Nidra provides the tools for maintaining a sense of wellbeing and peacefulness, allowing the fluctuations of the mind to slow and return to a state of homeostasis allowing you to drift into a conscious, deep sleep state simply through the guidance through a systematic sequence of soothing and relaxing techniques that increase your awareness and deepens your relaxation.Throughout the practice, you’re providing extra comfort and relaxation throughout the physical body allowing your brainwaves to regulate into a resting, calm, peaceful state that has been shown to help with insomnia, stress, grief, depression, anxiety, and symptoms from PTSD. Yoga Nidra allows you to tap into your very own awareness and experience and there is no wrong way to practice. No prior experience necessary.If you’re experiencing severe anxiety symptoms, reach out to a health care professional or find help using the BetterHelp app https://www.betterhelp.com.
