The word ‘nidra’ is translated literally to mean sleep but in this practice sleep is not regarded as true relaxation. For absolute relaxation, one must remain aware, and is in a state of awareness between wakefulness and dreams. It is a system of inducing complete physical, mental, and emotional relaxation. Practicing a method such as this can calm the entire emotional structure of the mind. It is an effective way to release stress and induce deep physiological rest and relaxation. Scientific studies have shown that practicing yoga nidra can lower blood pressure, anxiety levels, cure insomnia, and change your brain wave patterns, and all of these benefits without any effort or movement! This is the practice of Yoga Nidra-a state of dynamic sleep which is a deep relaxation with inner awareness. Yoga Nidra will change your life!– Taken from Yoga Nidra by Swami Satyananda Saraswati
