The practice of Yoga Nidra (yoga sleep) has been found to not only release stress and tension from the body, also because of the energy that becomes available, a resolve that's chosen within the practice will always come to pass. I was taught this practice by the wonderful and respected teacher Swami Shankardev Saraswati. Originally, a doctor from Australia, I have found Swami Shankardev's yogic approach to stress reduction simple, pragmatic, and straightforward, thus very effective. Yoga Nidra practice takes the body into a the deepest relaxed state possible, yet the mind remains alert and awake. After a 28 minute session it's not unusual to feel as though you've had 8 hours of sleep. Ultimately, learning to relax one's body will effectively reduce insomnia, monkey mind, anxiety, panic attacks, just to brush the surface.
