About

The goal of this application is to collect survey data indicating the effects of a digital Yoga Nidra practice on anxiety and sleep during COVID-19. We will explore effects on momentary anxiousness, as well as on sleep. Participants will be consented through REDCap during the Yoga Nidra class, then asked to complete an intake form, a sleep questionnaire (composed of questions from the Post Sleep Questionnaire (PSQ)) and a pre/post State Trait Anxiety (STAI) Index, surrounding the practice. Participants will receive an email the next morning, inquiring about their sleep (~2 min survey), and again the following week, the morning of the Yoga Nidra class, in order to remind them about the weekly class offering and also to collect sleep data for a night that did not include pre-bed Yoga Nidra. We will additionally report feasibility measures including enrollment, retention, qualitative feedback, and challenges of using the digital platform. Using this data, we will gain valuable feasibility data for implementation of this type of mind-body practice using digital platforms. We will also gain important data on the effects of this practice on anxiety and sleep.

Description:
Participants will voluntarily complete a ~30-minute remote Yoga Nidra practice, synchronously (through Zoom Wednesdays at 10 pm ET) or asynchronously (through YouTube, using the Zoom recording, any time they like). They may voluntarily repeat this practice as often as they like. Recordings are updated weekly, to reflect the ongoing Zoom class. Yoga Nidra scripts from Satyananda Saraswati's "Yoga Nidra" book (1976) are used for this class.
