YOGA NIDRA

20160203_171956.jpg

 Yoga Nidra or "yogic sleep" (in Sanskrit), is not only a deep relaxation technique; it is a state between sleeping and waking which is also called "psychic sleep". Practiced in a supine position, the body is completely relaxed and the practitioner turns the awareness inward by listening to a guided meditation. Practicing yoga nidra involves the practice of pratyahara ("withdrawal of the senses"), which is the fifth limb of Ashtanga yoga.

Practiced by ancient sages, yoga Nidra was used to watch the impression of the mind, in order to purify them to get closer to liberation or Moksha.

The practice of Yoga Nidra includes pranayama (breathing techniques) and dharana (concentration), which are the fourth and sixth limbs of Ashtanga yoga.

The practice of Yoga Nidra also stimulates the hormones in the pineal gland, which releases melatonin, a hormone that reduces stress, boosts the immune system and helps prevent illness.

 

Regular practice helps harmonize the brain hemispheres, promoting better mental performance.

Some of the benefits of Yoga Nidra are: 

Calming the mind, relaxing and rejuvenating the body, soothing of the nervous system, reducing fatigue, strengthening of the immune system, improving sleep, boosting concentration levels

Yoga Nidra is very similar to meditation, however, while traditional meditation is usually practiced in the ‘waking’ state, Yoga Nidra occurs in the space between waking and dreaming, and explores the various dimensions of your being.

It is said that 30 minutes of Yoga Nidra equals 4 hours of sleep.
