Divine Sleep Yoga Nidra with Jillian Dowling

JillianDowling/ June 14, 2017

Many of my clients report that they have a really hard time falling asleep. Many struggle with middle-of-the-night wakings that take them forever to fall back to sleep. Some have both which can really have a negative impact on their lives.

As a sleep professional, I’m always in search of the best ways to relax and be able to fall asleep quickly. During my search I was introduced to a practice called Divine Sleep Yoga Nidra.

Although it sounds like a form of yoga, it is in fact, a deep, guided mediation where all that is required is a cozy, quiet spot where you can lie down and listen.

What I love the most about Divine Sleep is that it is very guided and helps keep your mind from wandering. It takes you on a spiritual journey of your body, mind and soul and is such an intense and restorative meditation that it is equal to 3 hours of sleep!

Divine Sleep Yoga Nidra can be used to help catch up on lost sleep, to find a deeper relaxation or to find inner peace.

Anyone can practice Yoga Nidra. The hardest part is staying awake. But if you do happen to nod off, that’s ok! Our brains will do the work for us and we will still benefit through our unconscious minds.

If you are looking to improve your sleep through deeper relaxation, Divine Sleep Yoga Nidra is a great place to start.

Join me this fall for The Sleep Cleanse in The Healing Salt Cave Niagara Falls and The Healing Salt Caves Hamilton which will include two Divine Sleep Yoga Nidra sessions inside the healing salt cave.
