Known as “Yogic sleep” Yoga Nidra is a state between waking and sleeping that we normally pass through without noticing. To yogis this state is turyia, a state of silent awareness within. To Western medicine its hypnogogia, the border between alpha and theta brain waves, between day dreaming and dream sleep.
A Yoga Nidra session incorporates slow breathing, relaxation and body awareness. This has beneficial effects on multiple levels. Yoga Nidra can help us to:
- Get to, and go back to, sleep
- Regulate our emotional responses
- Be more aware of our body and its needs
- Improve our concentration and creativity
- Deal better with stress
- Improve general overall health
- Feel better about ourselves and others
Yoga Nidra is a form of guided meditation. Meditation develops awareness, focus, attention, calmness, compassion and a connection to the self or higher being. Some parts of a Yoga Nidra class are guided, others are just letting things happen.
