yoga nidra

Reset body and mind in 30 minutes.

Yoga Nidra is a guided meditation that relaxes the body and mind systematically. It is everybody’s favourite because you get do lie down!

I teach Yoga Nidra online and in person. It is an offering that I would like to extend to the corporate world, especially the health care sector!

Benefits stress related conditions.

Yoga Nidra releases tension stored in the body which ultimately is linked to stress and tension in the mind. It resets the nervous system and benefits stress related conditions such as indigestion, inflammation, irritability, hypertension among others.

Benefits anxiety and PTSD.

Yoga Nidra benefits multiple mental health conditions, including anxiety and (complex) PTSD. The nervous system gets a break from sensory inputs and relaxes in the single pointed focus of the instructions. Yoga Nidra is not recommended in a state of depression – check with your teacher first.

Improves sleep quality.

Yoga Nidra is said to be equivalent to 2-4 hours of deep sleep. The state between wakefulness and sleep is created on purpose to relax body and mind deeply. The guided meditation leaves us feeling rejuvenated and more spacious to take life in.


In my opinion, Yoga Nidra is one of the biggest gifts to the modern world. It is a systematical approach that relaxes the entire being. I was teaching weekly classes during the years of the pandemic online to support people’s wellbeing. The feedback was enormous and motivated me to create an album with guided relaxations. Yoga Nidra can be done anywhere, anytime. The same practice never leads to the same experience. You find the album with 4 different Yoga Nidra recordings (15 – 30 minutes) in all online stores under Norina Merkabah to get a taster. A class will take you deeper and give you context to this experience. I offer Yoga Nidra online and in person.


One reason why everybody loves Yoga Nidra is because it requires zero physical effort. The technique is done in Shavasana, lying on the back. Cushions & blankets are allowed to be comfortable throughout. The practice takes 20 – 25 minutes and leaves you recharged and refreshed!

I recommend Yoga Nidra to everyone. Yoga Nidra is one of the most profound & effective techniques. It is great to see that research is catching up on the multiple benefits of Yoga Nidra. It is beneficial for conditions such as PTSD, anxiety, obesity, chronic fatigue, burnout, PMS to name a few. The Yoga Nidra Network provides academic research results.

“Thank you, Norina, I appreciate these gifts for my wellbeing. I love doing this Yoga Nidra with you at the end of the day.”
