In Yoga Nidra, we lie down in Savasana while being guided through a systematic withdrawal of the senses and stimulation of different parts of the brain. The result is an extended length of period spent in the space in between waking and dreaming, called the hypnogogic state. Through this process, we uproot and transform Samskaras (deeply rooted patterns of behavior) and sow the seeds for deep healing.
Yoga Nidra has been shown to help with with anxiety, depression, stress, breaking through habitual behavior, PTSD, accelerated learning, increasing motivation, regulating hormones and glucose levels, and increasing the bodies innate healing and rejuvenating abilities. It is said that 15 minutes of Yoga Nidra is equal to 1 hour of sleep.
