Yoga and meditation may promote many health benefits, such as reducing fatigue and stress, for cancer survivors, patients actively in treatment or receiving palliative care, and caregivers. Yoga nidra is a guided meditation to induce full-body relaxation and deep rest. It helps quiet the overactive mind and brings it into a conscious, meditative state. Yoga nidra has been found to reduce symptoms of anxiety, post-traumatic stress disorder, chronic pain and insomnia. Led by Claudia Simpson, yoga therapist.
