Yoga Nidra is a powerful technique in which you learn to relax consciously. Yoga Nidra is the state of dynamic sleep, which is induced by guided meditation. It induces complete physical, mental and emotional relaxation.

“Nidra” means sleep and “Yoga” means union.

In Yoga Nidra, you are guided into a meditative state that is something between
being awake and being asleep. Yoga Nidra is not about concentration but about
shifting your awareness from point to point, from sensation to sensation. In the
experience of Yoga Nidra, you may appear asleep, but you are actually functioning at a deeper level of consciousness. In Yoga Nidra the state of relaxation is reached by turning inwards, away from outer experiences. This practice gives you space to fall deep into rest, psychic sleep and surrender to its experience moment by moment.
