Yoga Nidra or yogic sleep is a state of consciousness between waking and sleeping, like the "going-to-sleep" stage, induced by guided meditation. It is an immensely powerful meditation technique and one of the easiest yoga practices to develop and maintain.
While you rest comfortably in savasana, this systematic meditation takes you through the five layers of self, leaving you with a sense of wholeness.
Yoga Nidra promotes deep rest and relaxation and can be performed by everyone, from children to seniors. The stages of body scan and breath awareness are practiced to calm the nervous system, leading to less stress and better health.
