Yoga Nidra (as a technique of pratyahara meditation) not only provides relaxation

to the body and mind but also has a number of benefits. Literally, nidra means

‘sleep’ but refers to a type of ‘sleep’ with full awareness that is internalized. Within

the practice the body sleeps but the mind remains awake listening to the

instructions. The state achieved is often a state between sleep and wakefulness.

Yoga Nidra is a systematic method of complete relaxation, holistically addressing

our physiological, neurological, and subconscious needs. By quieting the

overactive conscious mind, then moving into a meditative state, gradually finding a

state of “pure consciousness” in which the brain waves slow down. Practitioners

will feel rested and rejuvenated.
