Is yoga nidra the ultimate power nap?
The ultra-relaxing meditation practice can reduce anxiety, boost happiness, and tackle insomnia
A yoga practice that provides multiple benefits without a downward dog in sight—where's the catch? There isn't one! In fact, it gets better: yoga nidra is a deep relaxation technique in which you need do nothing more strenuous than lie down and listen as a soothing voice talks away your anxieties. Shown to be a powerful tool in beating insomnia, stress, and depression, the time-honored technique can be enjoyed by anybody, at any time of day. And the best news of all? It's said that 45 minutes of this "yogic sleep" could be just as restful as several hours of actual sleep.
