Yoga Nidra means conscious and aware sleep. It is that state when you are totally relaxed yet conscious and aware. Similar to when you are just about to fall asleep. Yoga Nidra practices were developed thousands years ago as a means to achieve the deepest states of inner peace and relaxation. It is a way to positively impact and recondition your mind’s subconscious layers. Yoga Nidra can help you solve problems and enhance both your intuition and your creativity. It has also been found to reduce tension and anxiety. It will rejuvenate your body and your mind.
