Yoga Nidra is such effective technique, not only for physical or mental relaxation but also for preparing the mind for the higher yogic discipline. Yoga Nidra aims to focus the mind to achieve relaxation and increase wellness. Research also indicates that Yoga Nidra can be used as a therapeutic technique to cure psychological disorders like anxiety, depression, psychosomatic diseases and insomnia.
Research shows that the brain experiences the same activity during a 30 minute Yoga Nidra practice as about 4 hours of sleep. If we regularly remove our stress by Yoga Nidra, we will not only sleep better, but also our sleep will be much more restorative. Through this form of relaxation we prepare our system to be in a state of perfect receptivity.
People who practice Yoga Nidra report:
- Greater ability to relax and enjoy life
- Reduced anxiety, depression and fear
- Improved interpersonal relations
- Reduced chronic pain and insomnia
- Increased well-being, inner contentment
Yoga Nidra enables us to enter deeply into our superconscious “alpha wave” strata and remove mental blocks and tensions. Thus, we rediscover qualities such as peace, harmony and confidence. The practice recognizes your innate peace of mind that is always present amidst all changing circumstances of life. Yoga Nidra improves your interpersonal relationships and nourishes noble qualities such as joy, peacefulness, empathy, forgiveness, patience, love and kindness.
