A sequence to practice before lying down for Yoga Nidra guided meditation. The sequence is created to help release all tight spots and stiffness in the body such that the energy flows freely through the channels through the entire body. With awareness of the breath and the muscles stretched in each posture, you can benefit more when in Yoga Nidra, since the very same muscle that were stretched need to be relaxed, consciously. You will then lie back and be guided through Yoga Nidra. Props suggested: yoga blocks, blanket, cushion

In this 60minutes yoga practice, we will have some restorative yoga poses, and we will stay at each pose for 3 minutes, it’s enough for you to relax, repair and rejuvenate your body and mind. While holding at the pose, first you let your body settle into a steady and comfortable position, then you let your body relax and do not move anymore. Then you start to focus on the breath, breathe in and out through your nose slowly and deeply, you can either use natural breathing or ujjayi breathing (Ocean Breath). Slow and deep breath will make your body and mind more relax and calm. R2 will mention an affirmation, mentally repeat the affirmation. Repeating these affirmations over and over impresses the subconscious mind to such a degree that it slowly starts transforming the body to align with the positive thoughts. The session will conclude with a nice mantra.
