Guided meditation techniques to calm your coronavirus nerves

 

Hundreds of people living with and beyond cancer are adjusting to a new normal, due to government guidance issued on the coronavirus. For some people, this will mean not being able to attend services, such as Yoga Nidra (guided meditation), provided by Weston Park Cancer Charity.

 

Now more than ever, it’s essential to manage daily stresses and ensure you get a good night’s sleep and well let’s face it… with social distancing in place, you really have run out of excuses not to give yoga a go!

 

Yoga nidra, otherwise known as ‘yogic sleep’ aims to calm the central nervous system so that your body is completely relaxed whilst maintaining full consciousness. It helps reduce stress and anxiety as well as improving mood to help you relax and sleep… it’s more shavasana than downward dog!

 

To try this practice at home, simply download our guided mediation and find somewhere comfy to sit or lie down and start your practice.

 

We have 25 minute and 43 minute practices available, guided by our therapist Sarah Cotton.
