What Is Yoga Nidra?
Yoga Nidra is a branch of Yoga that has been gaining much popularity in yoga studios across the nation. The Sanskrit word Yoga means ‘union’ or ‘one pointed awareness’ and Nidra means ‘sleep.’ In Yoga Nidra, the body, mind and intellect are completely relaxed while one appears to be sleeping. The consciousness is actually functioning at a deeper level and the subconscious and unconscious realms of the mind open up. The subconscious and the unconscious mind are the most powerful forces in the human being. In Yoga Nidra you learn how to access these powerful forces to gain knowledge, cure disease, increase creativity and realize your true self.
What Are the Benefits of Yoga Nidra?
Yoga Nidra is a highly powerful ancient meditation technique originated from the Tantras. Practically, it is the scientific way to eliminate the root causes of negatives and stresses with in people’s lives. Yoga Nidra comprises the secrets of total transformation while giving a true, positive direction to our lives through eliminating the root cause of all negativities such as stress related disorders, aliments like hypertension, depression, insomnia, asthma, digestive disorders, etc.
Yoga Nidra is a more efficient and effective form of psychic and physiological rest and relaxation than routine sleep. A single hour of Yoga Nidra is as restful and refreshing as four hours of conventional sleep. By making Yoga Nidra a part of your daily life, you not only relax completely, but restructure and reform your whole personality from within. This process of transformation is not only quicker than the other systems which work on an external basis only, but the results are also more reliable and permanent.
