Here is a step-by-step guide to do yoga nidra.
Find a quiet space for you to comfortably lay down on your back and not be disturbed for about 45 minutes. You may choose to lay on a yoga mat if you have one.
Open your legs hip-distance apart and your arms out from your body at about a 45-degree angle with your palms face up. You can also choose a position comfortable for you.
Tip: It is a good idea to cover yourself with a blanket to keep yourself warm.
Lying down straight on your back in Corpse Pose (Shavasana). Close your eyes and relax. Take a few deep breaths in and out. Remember to take slow and relaxed breaths.
Tip: If you feel any discomfort or pain in lower back, adjust your posture or use a pillow to elevate the legs a little, for more comfort.
Yoga nidra is thus a joyous, effortless way to just let go, relax, and enjoy the experience that follows.
