ABSTRACT

The present study investigates the practice of yoga nidra meditation as an effective strategy for addressing the perceived stress and self regulation of teacher trainees. In this study, purposive sampling was used and the sample was drawn from two Colleges of Education in Chengalpet and Chennai. The sample consisted of 70 women students of whom 35 were in the experimental group and 35 in the control group. The age range was between 21 years to 23 years. The mean age of the experimental group was 21.83 years (SD = 0.86). The mean age of the control group was 21.89 years (SD = 0.83). The yoga nidra intervention module, which consisted of 20 sessions, was administered to the experimental group. There were three sessions per week with each session lasting for 1 hour and 30 minutes. Psychological tests were used to measure perceived stress and self-regulation. These tests were administered before and after the intervention to both the groups. The results showed that Yoga nidra meditation significantly decreased perceived stress in teacher trainees who underwent the intervention compared to a control group.
