Yoga Nidra for Anxiety
This full length guided yoga nidra/sleep yoga for anxiety and insomnia will help you let go of anxiety and stress to experience a deep inner peace and calm for a night free of insomnia. Through the practice of yoga nidra we can surrender the ceaseless running of the restless mind, let go of the accumulated tension in the body, stop, let go of controlling the uncontrollable and rest into our body’s own well-being for deep night’s sleep.
When we are caught up in a cycle of anxiety, we are often trying to do too much. We are caught in a cycle of doing, doing, doing. It is excessive urgency. We feel like we have to control everything and manage everything by doing. To control the anxiety we just try to do more.
Through yoga nidra your body and mind will be led into a relaxation response and excess stress hormones such as cortisol are removed from the system. Your muscles relax, your heart slows down, your breath deepens. Your body releases GABA which is calming, as well as melatonin and serotonin. Yoga nidra restores the parasympathetic nervous system balance, reversing the tendency to move into anxiety under stress allowing you to have deep sleep and let go of insomnia.
In this yoga nidra video for anxiety and insomnia you are going to connect you with your capacity for self and emotional regulation to relieve anxiety and insomnia.
This will give you a small taste of my 5 day #clearyourmindchallenge from April 19-23.
We live in a world of noise, excess, overwhelm, overload, overrun with too much of a good thing and our bodies, minds, emotions, energy bodies and spirits cannot possibly adapt
The result is anxiety, insomnia, poor memory, confusion, poor concentration and difficulty prioritizing
Each day we will practice one yin yoga postures which will support you in absorbing the exact nutrients and dosage that you need each day to radiate the balanced expression of your True self in the world.
We will step back from overfeeding ourselves or feeding ourselves the wrong things – physically, mentally, emotionally, energetically, spiritually. Through yin yoga, one posture a day our bodies will be able to tune in #clearyourmindchallenge
