The process of sleep happens by dropping into progressively deeper brainwave states. As we enter these brainwave states, the mind slows down and our thoughts naturally begin to move further away from us until we fall asleep. In YogaNidra, we enter this process consciously. The techniques of Yoga Nidra enable the slowing down of our brainwaves and allow us to enter the twilight zone between us and our thoughts….
Yoga Nidra quiets inner noise. This makes the practice ideally accessible for those simply seeking greater relaxation and inner tranquility.
