Yoga nidra means “yogic sleep.” Yoga nidra is a state of deep relaxation where the thinking mind goes quiet yet remains awake, present and receptive.
Yoga nidra practice is more restful than sleep, because the practice systematically releases stress and tension not only at the physical level, but also the mental and emotional levels. The practice is often compared to a mini vacation in which you return refreshed and rejuvenated.
Yoga nidra is also a powerful healing practice that is especially beneficial to those suffering from issues of chronic stress, anxiety, substance abuse, insomnia, and illness.
Yoga nidra will lead you deep into the waking sleep state by guiding you through the five sheaths of the body. Your awareness moves from the outer physical body, through the breath/energy body, then mental/emotional body, the wisdom/intellect body, through the bliss body, finally resting in a state of pure awareness. You remain awake and aware throughout the meditation, although you may have the sensation of being half awake or in a dream-like state. Several times within the meditation you are asked to repeat a personalized statement to yourself. This resolve is determined before the practice begins and it is a statement that reflects your deepest desire to be happy. The unconscious mind is susceptible to requests of the conscious mind during yoga nidra, therefore, profound changes in habitual patterns and beliefs can occur. The relaxed and receptive state of yoga nidra is the perfect state to remove what is blocking you from reaching your goals.
