This simple guided meditation is inspired by the Yoga Nidra meditation practice, which is a progressive relaxation of the entire body.

This simple guided meditation is inspired by the yoga nidra meditation practice, which is a progressive relaxation of the entire body. The difference is that while yoga nidra is meant to be done while awake, this guided meditation is intended to help you drift off to sleep. Whether or not you sleep, however, this meditation will give you a chance to rest deeply and allow your body to heal and repair itself.
