Additional Details on Yoga Nidra

Yoga Nidra is a guided meditation that induces deep relaxation of the body and mind with the ultimate aim of increasing self-awareness. It is a powerful relaxation and meditation technique derived from ancient tantra and developed by Swami Satyananda of the Bihar School of Yoga.

Yoga Nidra enables you to remain aware while you enter into the dream and sleeping states of consciousness. The state of Yoga Nidra occurs when you can remain conscious during the deep sleep state while being led on a meditative journey.

The practice of Yoga Nidra is accessible to anyone; it helps create deep relaxation, and can be beneficial in your mental and physical well-being.

In Yoga Nidra, you leave the Waking state,
go through the Dreaming state,
and into the Deep Sleep state,
yet remain fully awake.
