Introduction to Yoga Nidra

INTRODUCTION to YOGA NIDRA

Yoga Nidra is known as yogic sleep or sleeping with awareness. It is an ancient Tantric meditation technique that induces full-body relaxation and a deep meditative state of consciousness. According to Yogarupa Rod Stryker, "We live in a chronically exhausted, over stimulated world, and yoga Nidra is a systematic method of complete relaxation, holistically addressing our physiological, neurological, and subconscious needs."

The benefits of Yoga Nidra as a technique for centering the self and meditation include:

  • Improvement in the quality of sleep

  • Increased efficiency & enthusiasm at work

  • Achievement of states of deep relaxation

  • Relief for Rheumatoid arthritis and other autoimmune diseases

  • Slower rate of breath and lower blood pressure

  • Effective technique for the management of stress, addictions, migraines, and depression
