Yoga Nidra: Body Scan

Yoga Nidra is a sleep based meditation that brings you from thinking and doing to feeling and being. Yoga Nidra is beneficial for both the body and the mind. It is a powerful tool to help relieve tension and stress.

Below is a 15 minute body scan practice inspired by VETOGA and Dharma Mittra. All you have to do is lay down, close your eyes, and follow the voice that is guiding you. Often times, you will remember certain parts of the Yoga Nidra practice and not others. Even if you don’t remember everything your mind is still absorbing the practice.

If you find that outside noise bothers and distracts you when you’re meditating, don’t fight the noise. The more you try to push it away, the more it will bother you. Become aware of the noise and acknowledge it. Gradually take your attention towards the noisy environment, observe each sound and then return to the voice guiding you. This brings your mind to the present moment and helps you settle down. There will come a point when you transcend any noise, and it stops bothering you.
