Yoga Nidra, 'conscious sleep', is a guided meditation form. It is a practice that induces brainwave patterns associated with ‘rest and digest’ element of the central nervous system, allowing a state of effortless non-doing. Focus is given to the breath throughout as well as other tools to induce sleep naturally, to fully restore, connect to and within the body, nourish and soothe. Practice this lying down or in any position to bring meditation into napping. Let yourself de-focus as well as letting your attention ebb and flow naturally.

"Don't push yourself too hard in class. Always listen to your body and what it needs. Stop if you are in pain. Make sure you have a safe open place to practice and that you consult a health professional for advice on injuries, conditions or illness."
