Yoga Nidra is beautiful and powerful guided meditation technique that guides the practitioner into a state of consciousness between waking and sleeping. Yoga Nidra is becoming increasingly popular as a strong and effective antidote for our modern, stressful lifestyles and is one of the easiest yoga practices to develop and maintain. While the practitioner rests comfortably in savasana (resting pose), this ancient systematic meditation technique takes you through the Pancha Maya Kosha (yogic five layers of self), leaving you with a sense of wholeness, rejuvenation and deep relaxation.
Yoga Nidra helps to rest, restore, de-stress, increase awareness, undo bad habits and brings awareness to deep-rooted conditioned behavioural patterns. It gives insight into our true calling and heart desires and helps with bringing our life into alignment with our truth. Yoga Nidra is among the deepest possible states of relaxation, while still maintaining full consciousness. Thirty minutes of Yoga Nidra practice is said to be equivalent to 3 to 4 hours of deep sleep
