About

Yoga Nidra is essentially a form of meditation and deep relaxation which allows you to experience the ‘liminal’ space between waking and sleeping. This is a very peaceful place to be. It has a number of side benefits too, including:

Physical

• improves the quality of your sleep and the amount of your sleep
• reduces your chronic pain suffering
• soothes your autonomic nervous system

Mental

• enhances your mental focus and attention span
• improves your creativity and whole brain functioning

Emotional

• gives you more ease and peace of mind in daily life
• helps create new neural pathways in your brain leading to healthy habits & routines

 

 

Everyone has a story. This is my story about how I became discovered Yoga Nidra and went on to teach it, and adapted it into a flexible tool to suit everyone’s needs.

Since our youngest child was born nearly 30 years ago I began to suffer from sleeplessness. Some would say I was suffering from insomnia, but it depends on how you define ‘insomnia’. Suffice it to say that the quality of sleep that I was getting was very poor, and I often woke up feeling unrefreshed and unrested.

I was desperate to find a solution. I was fortunate enough to be self-employed, and could nap occasionally during the afternoon, but would still wake up feeling groggy and unrefreshed.

One day, I happened upon a book about Yoga Nidra – something I had never heard of , despite being a keen enthusiast of meditation for several years.

They say there’s no ‘magic bullet’ cure for anxiety disorder, but Tim’s Yoga Nidra recording worked instantly for me. It’s been keeping me anxiety free for over 10 years. I can’t recommend it highly enough. – Damian, Norfolk

I started practising right away, and the most immediate result was that my sleep improved, and I no longer felt groggy when I woke up.

I then started teaching Yoga Nidra as part of a Stress management course I was running at Bromley College of Further Education.

It proved to be the most popular method of meditation I taught by far.

As I was also working as a voiceover artist at the time, several people suggested I narrate my own Yoga Nidra recording, which I did.

I made it a free download, and it has been downloaded thousands of times. It’s still available here: https://archive.org/details/YogaNidra
