Yoga Nidra

Yoga sleep is a guided meditation to calm the nervous system.

Yoga nidra, or yoga “sleep”, is a guided meditation practiced laying on the back. This simple practice of allowing the physical body to be comfortable during meditation means that a lot of people find it “easier” than seated meditation. We are more quickly able to calm the nervous system and reap all the benefits.

Yoga Nidra can feel like that place between asleep and awake, during which we are both conscious and deeply at peace. It’s in this place that the mind and body are capable of profound healing.

Yoga Nidra can help with a great many things:

  • Stress
  • Anxiety
  • Insomnia
  • Indecision
  • Physical pain and tension
  • Settling the mind before a big race
  • Processing emotions and life experiences
  • Grief
  • Trauma
  • Breaking habits that no longer serve us
  • Setting intentions

Each private 40 minute yoga nidra session will include an initial check-in so that I can truly personalize your experience, as a well as time at the end for questions and processing. Both in-person and virtual sessions are available.

I often include yoga nidra in my private yoga therapy sessions. If you’re primarily interested in resolving physical pain, yoga therapy might be a better fit. Semi-private yoga nidra with a friend or family member of yours is also an option, as well as 60 minute sessions.


“Let’s face it. Life can be uncertain, stressful and messy. Uncertainty produces anxiety, fear and insecurity and is the cause of anxiety, depression and other stress-induced diseases. Yoga nidra builds your immunity to uncertainty.”

Kamini Desai
