Yoga nidra is a relaxation-based meditation done lying down. Think of it as meditation with training wheels. Like any practice, it's best to be learned privately from a master instructor. We offer personalized sessions for individuals and couples, and advanced trainings for facilitators.

Avoid practicing in complete darkness or in bed; it's best not to fall asleep. • Lie on the floor. Thick carpet is good. Use blankets or padding if the floor is hard. If you have lower back issues, place a pillow, bolster or rolled blanket under your knees, but make sure your heels are resting on the floor so there's no pulling in the backs of your legs or hips. Make sure you're warm, covering up if necessary. You might want a thin blanket under your head or under the curve in your neck. • Arms rest comfortably by your side, close to the body but not touching, palms turned in or up, feet about hips' width, eyes closed. Adjust your body for comfort so you won't need to move. Ideally, you'll remain motionless, deeply relaxed yet conscious. Just listen and feel, following the instructions without trying. • Questions?
