Yoga nidra can be used therapeutically for healing, as well as to enhance creativity and productivity and to improve sleep and general health.

What is the Heart Centre Chakra?
The chakras are subtle energy centres in the body and originate in Indian healing philosophy. There are seven major chakras and each one is a major hub for prana (vital energy) that flows throughout the body. When a chakra is blocked both emotional and physical health can suffer. Anahata is one of the most complex and talked about chakras in the body and is the fourth chakra that sits in the centre of the chest.This chakra relates to love and is the centre of unconditional love and compassion
How to Listen to Yoga Nidra
