This full length guided yoga nidra/sleep yoga for anxiety will help you let go of anxiety and stress to experience a deep inner peace and calm. Through the practice of yoga nidra we can surrender the ceaseless nature of the restless mind, let go of the accumulated tension in the body, stop, let go of controlling the uncontrollable and rest into our body’s own well-being.
When we are caught up in a cycle of anxiety, we are often trying to do too much. We are caught in a cycle of doing, doing, doing. It is excessive urgency. We feel like we have to control everything and manage everything by doing. To control the anxiety we just try to do more.
Through yoga nidra your body and mind will be led into a relaxation response and excess stress hormones such as cortisol are removed from the system. Your muscles relax, your heart slows down, your breath deepens. Your body releases GABA which is calming, as well as melatonin and serotonin. Yoga nidra restores the parasympathetic nervous system balance, reversing the tendency to move into anxiety under stress.
