  • What is Yoga Nidra (NSDR)?
    Yoga Nidra, often referred to as "yogic sleep" or known as NSDR (Non-Sleep Deep-Rest), is an ancient tantric practice of withdrawing the senses while also maintaining full consciousness, which induces deep and total relaxation. It involves a systematic process of guided meditation that helps participants achieve a state between wakefulness and sleep, unlocking incredible therapeutic benefits.
  • How does Yoga Nidra (NSDR) benefit your health?
    Yoga Nidra offers numerous health benefits as it trains the individual to release physical, mental, and emotional tension. Benefits include but are not limited to: stress reduction, improved sleep quality, decreased anxiety and depression, enhanced mental focus, and a greater sense of well-being. It is a common alternative treatment for Insomnia and PTSD. Some studies have found it can also help with pain management and healing.
  • Can beginners practice Yoga Nidra (NSDR)?
    Yes, Yoga Nidra is suitable for people of all ages and fitness levels, including beginners. Unlike physical yoga practices that involve postures, Yoga Nidra is practiced lying down in a comfortable position, making it accessible to everyone.
  • How long is a typical Yoga Nidra (NSDR) session?
    A typical Yoga Nidra session can last anywhere from 15 minutes to an hour. The length may vary depending on the practitioner's goals, the guided meditation used, and the individual's schedule.
  • Do you need a teacher to practice Yoga Nidra (NSDR)?
    While it is possible to practice Yoga Nidra (NSDR)on your own, it takes a great deal of practice and expertise. While practicing Yoga Nidra it is usual to use guided recordings. In addition working with a knowledgeable teacher can enhance your experience, especially as you begin. A teacher can provide personalized guidance and adjust the practice to your specific needs.
  • What do you need to start practicing Yoga Nidra (NSDR)?
    To start practicing Yoga Nidra (NSDR), all you need is a quiet, comfortable space where you won't be disturbed. Use a yoga mat or a soft surface to lie on, and consider using pillows or blankets for additional comfort. When practicing at home you can use headphone and use one of the guided Yoga Nidra meditations on CreativeREST.
  • Can Yoga Nidra (NSDR) improve sleep?
    Yes, Yoga Nidra (NSDR) is highly effective in improving sleep quality. Its deep relaxation techniques have been scientifically proven to help address insomnia and other sleep disorders, leading to better sleep patterns and overall health.
  • Is Yoga Nidra a religious practice?
    Yoga Nidra, like yoga itself, is not inherently religious. It is a practice focused on achieving deep relaxation and mental clarity. People of all backgrounds and beliefs can practice Yoga Nidra without conflict with their personal faiths.
  • How often should you practice Yoga Nidra?
    The frequency of Yoga Nidra practice can vary depending on individual preferences and goals. Even a single session can provide benefits, but regular practice (such as daily or several times a week) is more likely to result in deeper and more sustained improvements in health and well-being.
  • Where can I find Yoga Nidra (NSDR) classes?
    Yoga Nidra classes slowly becoming more popular at yoga studios, wellness centers, and are becoming popular online. We created the Yoga Nidra library on CreativeREST so that you can easily access curated classes (that don't have pesky ads) and suit those looking for a quick 15 minute energy boost or even need an uninterrupted 8 hour all night session for their Insomnia. In CreativeREST you also have access to expert teachers to personalise your practice.
