Yoga Nidra translates directly to ‘yogic sleep’ and is a state of consciousness between waking and sleeping – that sweet spot right before you drift off to dreamland. It is a systematic form of guided relaxation, which often exudes immediate physical effects such as reduced stress, and release of physical tension.
It is said 40 minutes of Yoga Nidra is equivalent to about two hours’ sleep! An immensely powerful meditation technique, Yoga Nidra is one of the easiest yoga practices to develop and maintain. You will lay in savasana (corpse pose) for the whole length of the class, while the meditation takes you through the Pancha Maya Kosha (Five Layers of the Self), leaving you with a sense of calm and wholeness.
