Service Description

Yoga Nidra (yogic sleep) is a state of consciousness between waking and sleeping, just like that feeling when you are just about to doze off, typically induced by a guided meditation.  Yoga Nidra is a form of active meditation. The practitioner follows instructions regarding different kinds of actions, without becoming distracted and while remaining completely awake and alert. Practitioners may appear asleep but the consciousness is actually operating at a deeper level of awareness.   Yoga Nidra is a state in which the body is completely relaxed, and the practitioner becomes systematically and increasingly aware of their inner world by following the guide's verbal instructions. This state of consciousness is different from meditation, in which concentration on a single focus is required with verbal cues. In yoga Nidra the practitioner remains in a state of light withdrawal of the 5 senses (pratyahara) with four senses internalized, and only hearing that connects to instructions given. It is among the deepest possible states of relaxation while still maintaining fully conscious. In lucid dreaming, one is mainly cognizant of the dream state, and has little or no awareness of one's actual environment. Yoga Nidra results in conscious awareness of the deep sleep state, which is called prajna in the Manduka Upanishad.   There is evidence that yoga Nidra helps relieve stress. An ancient technique from India, it has now spread worldwide and is also being applied by the US Army to assist soldiers to recover from post-traumatic stress disorder. Yoga Nidra gently unwinds the nervous system, which is the foundation of the body’s well-being.
