Sometimes known as "yogic sleep," Yoga Nidra is a practice of conscious relaxation that counters the swirling busy-ness of everyday life and relieves muscular, mental, and emotional tension.
Practiced in a comfortable reclining position - the practice is most often taught as a guided relaxation practices helping you rotate your attention through your body and the various layers of the body/mind/psyche. This heightens awareness and helps you undo habitual patterns of tension, resistance and judgment.
Often we seek rest and rejuvenation through distraction, but true restoration comes with awareness, in a state between sleep and waking, where the senses get a break and the subtle layers increase receptivity.
Think of Yoga Nidra as the Yogi's "power nap"!
