Learn the power of deep, purposeful rest.

Nidra is the passive practice of entering into a brain state just above sleep.  Nidra is proven to restore lost sleep and support brain health. It facilitates change within us at the deepest levels.

Sleep is a critical aspect of health.  Yoga nidra is a movement-free practice that supports mind-body health with just 20 to 30 minutes of practice.

Yoga nidra offers us the opportunity to:

  • Teach the mind-body system to fall asleep more easily
  • Improve sleep quality
  • Create change in emotional patterns through brain plasticity created by deep relaxation
  • Improve capacity for learning
  • Improve blood flow to the brain
  • Reduce fatigue and replace lost sleep
  • Reduce reactivity in our emotional and relational lives
  • Foster more of what we need in our thinking and feeling

Testimonials

Why I teach yoga nidra

During my personal stress resilience training with coach Emily Hightower at Shift, I began practicing yoga nidra occasionally as an experiment to see how it sat with me.  Over the months I realised how well it compensated for the occasional lack of sleep.  As time went by and I practiced more and more, I realised many common neurological symptoms I experienced of perimenopause had also disappeared. This included dizziness, brain fog and fatigue.  I found that my clarity of thought was greater than it had ever been and I find that if I stop nidra, I lose some of this ground I have gained.  I now practice almost daily and consider nidra to be one of the most powerful techniques for emotional and physical health.

Nidra is a beautiful practice based in both ancient yogic traditions and in modern science, particularly neuroscience.

I have trained in nidra through My Vinyasa Practice and my work with it is informed by Emily’s NeuroNidra method. I write my own scripts and each online session is unique.

Nidra is your opportunity to create deep restoration in mind & body.
