Prepare for this deeply relaxing guided visualization by making sure that you have used the restroom and are not full from a recent meal or hungry for your next one. Keep a glass of water ready to sip after finishing your practice.

Lay down on your yoga mat or on your bed, with a pillow tucked under your head and a comfortable cover for your body. Try to rest in corpse pose or savasana. You could choose to make yourself comfortable in any manner, as long as you are able to lay in stillness for the entire duration. It is best to practice when you are not sleepy, unless you are using this method for helping you fall and stay asleep at night.

The origins of this technique can be traced back to Indian mythology which demonstrated that the practitioner can create their reality through guided visualization. This particular scripted practice is designed by Dr. Halpern, Founder and President of The California College of Ayurveda.

A recent study showed that Yoga Nidra is effective in reducing anxiety and stress. This practice is scientifically proven to lower stress and slow down your brain waves, which in turn gives your body an opportunity to rest, restore and heal. Yoga Nidra can be used to heal from trauma and chronic pain.

"Yoga Nidra is the yoga of aware sleep. In this lies the secret of self-healing. Yoga Nidra is a technique in which the distractions of the mind are contained and the mind is relaxed.” ~ Swami Satyananda Saraswati
