Yoga Nidra

What Is Yoga Nidra?

Yoga Nidra also known as Yoga Sleep is a state of consciousness between waking and sleeping which is quite similar to “going to sleep” stage. This is the state in which our body experiences complete relaxation, which systematically and increasingly makes us aware of our inner world. Yoga Nidra is one of the ancient practices found in Indian traditions. It is considered one of the deepest possible states of relaxation while still maintaining full consciousness.

Yoga Nidra is considered as an ideal way of ending your typical Yoga session. This makes the Yoga practice more effective and provides deep restoration to your body and the mind and also helps to increase the energy levels of the body. Yoga Nidra can literally take you to the next level where you experience a relaxed body, fluid mind, and supercharged intuition.

What Can I expect In a Yoga Nidra Session?

Yoga Nidra is a five-step process beginning with a body scan to keep your physical presence engaged. Further stages include meditation on the breath, the balancing of emotional states, visualization, self-healing and setting a positive intention.

Verbal instructions play a crucial role in Yoga Nidra sessions. It is different from typical meditation in which concentration on a single focus is required. In yoga Nidra the 5 senses are withdrawn lightly in such a way that four of them are internalized, that is, withdrawn, and only the sense of hearing still connected to the instructions. You are consciously asked to take your attention to different parts of the body and relax them.
It is recommended to practice Yoga Nidra on an empty stomach.
How does Yoga Nidra Work?

Yoga Nidra allows us to wander through the entire body by moving through different stages of consciousness just as in sleep. It makes one shift between the waking state, dream state, and finally to deep, dreamless sleep. This helps to create deep relaxation for mental peace, health, and higher awareness.

There are several relaxation exercises used to prepare the mind and body for Yoga Nidra. Which balances the right and left hemispheres of the brain and stimulates the subtle energies of our vital force.
 

It’s said that 45 minutes of Yoga Nidra is as restorative as 3 hours of sleep and continuous practice can lead your autonomic nervous system to self-mastery.


 

Yoga Nidra not only helps to improve your mental health but also boosts the functioning of the immune and metabolic system thereby making you physically healthy.
