Yoga nidra (or yogic sleep) is a state of consciousness between waking and sleeping, like the “going-to-sleep” stage? Yoga nidra, or yogic sleep as it is commonly known, is an immensely powerful meditation technique, and one of the easiest yoga practices to develop and maintain. It is a state in which the body is completely relaxed, and the practitioner becomes systematically and increasingly aware of the inner world by following a set of verbal instructions.
Yoga nidra is among the deepest possible states of relaxation while still maintaining full consciousness
The practice of yoga relaxation has been found to reduce tension and anxiety. The autonomic symptoms of high anxiety such as headache, giddiness, chest pain, palpitations, sweating and abdominal pain respond well.
Yoga nidra offers a space to explore what you need in the moment, as well as an opportunity to work on releasing long-held emotions
It’s said that 45 minutes of Yoga Nidra is as restorative as 3 hours of sleep.
