Yoga Nidra

The art of conscious relaxation (psychic sleeping), a powerful practice where the body, mind, and spirit are liberated from their tensions and anxiety. You can put the body into sleep while the mind remains fully awake. The brain wave drops into the theta state where deep levels of healing takes place on the emotional, mental, and physical levels. Regular practice of yoga nidra can improve sleeping patterns, offer relief from chronic pain, help with depression, PTSD, as well as headaches. This state of consciousness (yoga nidra) is different from meditation in which you must focus on one single thing.

The Technique
Yoga Nidra usually takes from twenty to forty five minutes to complete. The person lies on his or her back in totally relaxed posture--shavasana. Eyes are lightly closed, arms are kept with palms facing upwards, breathing is natural and quiet.

All you do is lie down, listen, and receive!

You can practice yoga nidra meditation in any comfortable position, even in your bed!
