Our lifestyles have caused an insomnia epidemic.
The inability to achieve a good night’s sleep is one of the biggest factors undermining our quality of life today.
A large percentage of the worlds population suffer from sleeping problems. Approximately a third of these have chronic insomnia which affects moods, physical health, relationships and careers.
Due to this epidemic of chronic sleeping disorders, the birth of or, maybe I should say a resurgence of yoga nidra, or deep replenishing sleep yoga has come about.
Yoga nidra, not only teaches students how to relax and sleep but also provides the knowledge and encouragement necessary so that students are able to transfer their yoga nidra experience into their daily life. They are able to maintain a calm mind, focus and balance through out their day.
In the West, more vigorous styles of yoga have found favour. However in the East for example India (known as the mother land of Yoga), their are a huge variety of yoga styles including the gentle style of pranayama (breath awareness exercises) as well as wakeful sleep, or the yoga of sleep.The regular practice of deep peaceful relaxation has for years been touted as one of the most beneficial practises you can do to improve mental health and wellbeing.
