Benefit of Practice
Divine Sleep Yoga Nidra® induces the relaxation response; your body’s healing state where revitalization and regeneration occur. Your body knows exactly what to do to attain and maintain perfect health and equilibrium, but you need to turn on the healing switch. Divine Sleep is that healing switch that brings us effortlessly, compassionately, and rapidly out of the flight-or-fight state and into the healing state.
Research conducted at well-recognized universities and medical centers including Stanford University, Walter Reed Army Medical Center, Ohio State University, Medical College of Ohio, Banaras University and others, shows that regular practice of yoga nidra offers a viable means of prevention and reversal of numerous ailment and diseases, including cardiovascular, stress related illness, chronic pain, and psychosomatic conditions.
