15 Benefits of Using Robin Carnes Yoga Nidra

Robin Carnes Yoga Nidra is one of the best Yoga Nidras that I have tried. Her Yoga Nidra is especially for people who suffer from insomnia, chronic pain, depression, anxiety, restlessness, or Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder. However, anyone can benefit from this meditative practice. 

Yoga Nidra is a meditative practice that originates from India. It is about 3000 years ago.
