Yoga nidra, or yogic sleep, is an immensely powerful meditation technique which prompts the body to relax deeply while the mind remains inwardly alert.
Yoga Nidra pioneer, Swami Satyananda Saraswati, refers to it as “reaching the border between waking and sleeping states.” Yoga nidra works by gently guiding you through four main stages of brain wave activity – beta, alpha, theta, and delta.
It's a Simple Way to Reduce Stress. Yoga nidra promotes deep rest and relaxation that isn’t found in your average meditation practice. The stages of body scan and breath awareness alone can be practiced to calm the nervous system, leading to less stress and better health.
Immerse yourself in this deep relaxation and allow to free yourself from stress and anxiety. Yoga Nidra puts you in a state very similar to a sleep which will help you to regenerate and deeply harmonize your body and mind.
