Practiced in the posture of Savasana, Yoga Nidra is a systematic method of inducing complete physical, mental and emotional relaxation. Often referred to as "yogic sleep", it is a state of mind between wakefulness and dream where one appears to be asleep but the consciousness is functioning at a deeper level of awareness. A beautiful, healing practice, one hour of yoga nidra has been proven to be as beneficial to the body as 3 to 4 hours of sleep.
