YOGA NIDRA (aka Sleep Yoga)

Get Better Sleep With This Routine! 👇🏼

Do you feel tired even after a solid 7-9 hours of sleep? If you do, don’t miss my weekly Yoga Nidra sessions for better zzz.


Sleep is a vital part of life and yet most people don’t get enough of it. Even if we do sleep enough, we aren’t getting the quality sleep that we need.


Below are the top 5 benefits of sleep (weight loss is one of them).


Did you know that on average 50-70 million US adults have a sleep disorder? 37.9% reported unintentionally falling asleep during the day at least once in the preceding month and 4.7% of people reported nodding off or falling asleep while driving at least once in the month before. 


That is an astronomical number of people not getting the sleep that they need! We all know very well the feeling of lacking sleep. Not only do we feel cranky and dazy, on top of that, we simply cannot serve the people with love being sleep deprived. 


While sleep is essential for all humans. Few people know the actual benefits of sleep.


5 BENEFITS OF SLEEP 😴


1. Sleep helps the body to self-repair.

While we’re sleeping, our cells produce more protein. These protein molecules form the building blocks for cells, allowing them to repair any damage from stress, harmful exposure, and UV rays.


2. Sleep lowers the risk of depression.

A sufficient amount of sleep between 7-9 hours each night helps produce serotonin. Serotonin is the ‘happy’ hormone that contributes to the feeling of happiness and well-being. 


3. Sleep may keep you at a healthy weight.

Research has shown that a lack of sleep affects the balance of hormones in the body called ghrelin and leptin. These two hormones are responsible for our appetite. If there is an imbalance in these hormones, we might eat more than what our body actually needs.


4. Sleep improves your memory

Although we still don’t really know why we dream, however, with the current research we do know that sleep plays a crucial role in memory consolidation. Deep sleep is especially important for the brain to process our busy day, linking events in our life, and making memory.

5. Sleep reduces inflammation in our body

Stress hormones remain elevated in the body if we are lacking sleep. This creates a greater risk for diseases such as heart-related conditions, cancer, and diabetes. Inflammation is also linked to cause body deterioration as we age.

Yoga Nidra is the best way to fall into deep sleep. You can pair this audio with the yin yoga routine above or simply practice nidra alone


Never underestimate how much self-care you need. We might think we can brave through whatever we have on the plate right now. The truth is you can. You are brave and courageous. However, that doesn’t mean you can’t nourish your body, mind, and soul at the same time.


Find your balance.


Now we know the importance of sleep.


Join me every Sunday 12:30pm for a 60 minute yoga Nidra routine to help you sleep better!


You are so worthy of love,
