Description

Yoga and meditation may promote many health benefits, such as reducing fatigue and stress, for cancer survivors, patients actively in treatment or receiving palliative care, and caregivers. Yoga nidra is a guided meditation to induce full-body relaxation and deep rest. It helps quiet the overactive mind and brings it into a conscious, meditative state. Yoga nidra has been found to reduce symptoms of anxiety, post-traumatic stress disorder, chronic pain and insomnia. Led by Claudia Simpson, yoga therapist.
