10 Benefits of Yoga Nidra

Yoga Nidra is a transformational scientific activity of doing less yet getting more. When you are in it, you are doing very less yet achieving more, releasing your complex thoughts to arrive at the state of mental calmness and rest. Through the practice, you learn to relax deeply in the awaken state. This form of pose is least done by the yogis but it is one of the highly appreciated and beneficial forms of yoga which is being practiced by yogis since ages. It constitutes series of breath, body and awareness techniques which help you to get transported into the state of non-doing leading to the highly regenerative state where the energy is released to heal and restore the body.

In today’s world, the problem is not much about poverty, drugs, fear of war, but it is mental tension, which causes many psychological and psychosomatic disorders. And Yoga Nidra is the answer to it… When we practice Yoga Nidra the body is relaxed and the muscular tension is released. Also when the Yoga Nidra is practiced, we are slowly moved into the deeper mental state where we encounter the emotional tensions and as soon we are able to find out these tensions in awareness, the repressed emotions are released, we then are able to achieve mental calmness and peace. With the conscious breath awareness, the mind reaches the state of relaxation, which helps in the release of the mental tension.  Swami Satyananda says, “A single hour of Yoga Nidra is as restful as four hours of conventional sleep”.
