What is the Restorative Yoga Nidra Method?

The Restorative Yoga Nidra Method is based on traditional yoga practices and supported by a significant body of modern scientific research. 

Mindfulness is combined with deep relaxation, breathing techniques and other stages such as auto-suggestion, visualisation and pain reprocessing  tailored to the individual or groups’ therapeutic aims.  The Restorative Yoga Nidra Method is usually done in supine for 10 – 30 mins. This method can be used online, face to face and in groups.
Mind racing and unhelpful thoughts can be managed. Pain messages can be re-processed. The method assists with body awareness, interoception, acceptance and establishing goals and life purpose.
This can be a truly transforming practice!

about ...

What is the evidence?

The Restorative Yoga Nidra Method has been well researched over several decades.
It is proven to be efficacious for chronic musculoskeletal pain, depression, stress and anxiety by calming and renewing the nervous system. Cortisol levels in the body can be reduced thereby reducing inflammation. It also assists with mind racing, thought and behaviour awareness, concentration, sleep, body awareness, interoception, empowerment and feelings of well-being. These practices can actually change the brain function and morphology.
A comprehensive summary of the evidence base is provided in the learning portal.
