What is Yoga Nidra?

Yoga nidra is a type of meditation practice originating from ancient India, commonly known as "yogic sleep" or "dynamic sleep." It is a contemplative practice that involves following guided prompts while lying in a comfortable position through various stages of relaxation, breathing exercises, and visualization.

This practice aims to induce a state of deep relaxation and meditation, similar to the liminal state between waking and sleeping. This state can provide numerous physical, emotional, and mental benefits, such as reducing stress and anxiety, improving sleep, enhancing creativity, and promoting overall well-being. In this state, you may experience a sense of timelessness, expansiveness, and interconnectedness.
