Of all the meditation techniques available, Yoga Nidra may well be one of the most accessible and powerful techniques for individuals of all levels of experience. Yoga Nidra is an incredible practice that will help you recover from any physical, mental or emotional turmoil found in life, as well as alleviating symptoms like fatigue, stress, anxiety and insomnia.
