Common steps and sub-activities

Yoga nidra

This is not an exercise in which you are using controlled breathing, but by concentrating on the natural breath you turn the mind away from its mental gymnastics and help the body become looser and lighter with each exhalation.

Keep the awareness on the breath and the physical body. 

Try to ignore the mental chatter and concentrate only on the breath and body.  Don’t think about the time for the exercise, or how long it is taking, take as long as it takes.
