Therapeutic Yoga Nidra FAQ

What is the Restorative Yoga Nidra Method?

The Restorative Yoga Nidra Method is based on traditional yoga practices and supported by a significant body of modern scientific research. There are several stages of mindfulness and deep relaxation where healing is enhanced. The method is done lying down in a comfortable position, usually for 10 – 30 mins. This method can be done online, face to face and in groups.

The facilitator guides the process of mindfulness, progressive deep relaxation, basic breathing techniques and other stages such as visualisation and auto-suggestion tailored to the individual or groups’ therapeutic aims. Pain messages can be re-processed. Mind racing and unhelpful thoughts can be managed. The method assists with body awareness, interoception, acceptance and establishing values and goals.
