The Power of Yoga Nidra

Harness the power of yoga nidra for deep relaxation and healing. Why practice yoga nidra? I personally use this practice for relaxation, stress recovery and to strengthen my life’s purpose. I have witnessed the benefits not only in myself but others too. Yoga nidra or yogic sleep is a powerful meditation practice that promotes self awareness and deep relaxation.
