Luminous Inner Brilliance Yoga Nidra Meditation

Experience the Luminous Inner Brilliance Yoga Nidra Meditation Session with Melissa Abbott. You may practice this anytime during your day as a meditation practice, perhaps after lunch or in the afternoon to refocus your inner awareness. It is best practiced after a Hatha Yoga Session or before Bedtime. At those times your body will be able to completely relax so the transformative and healing benefits of Yoga Nidra can take root in the best possible way.

This particular Yoga Nidra was developed for an after a Monday Night Hot Yoga Vinyasa Class in June 2019 at Steam House Hot Yoga and Pilates in Epping New Hampshire where I teach Yoga. Students have found it to be very beneficial relieving muscular, mental, and emotional tension such as stress and anxiety. It stimulates better sleep, enhances memory, creativity, and energy levels. Known to heal imbalances in the endocrine system, cultivation positive body awareness and restructuring Mind/Body/Spirit Balance from the inside out.
