Yoga-nidra is an efficient method of inducing complete physical, mental and emotional relaxation while maintaining consciousness. In fact Yoga Nidra not only brings physical and mental relaxation but also prepares the mind for spiritual evolution. It is mainly associates with pratyahara (withdrawing senses form sense-objects) and dharana (concentration). In normal sleep consciousness is absent and the unconscious is in charge. In Yoga Nidra the consciousness directs the unconscious to relax. Yoga Nidra is a 'sleep' where all the burdens, stress, strain, anxiety are thrown off to attain more blissful state of awareness, a relaxation much more intense than ordinary sleep. Yoga Nidra is said to be the doorway to samadhi!' Generally Yoga-nidra is practiced in Shavasana or sitting position. It may last for 25 to 45 min. It is important to remain awake and aware during the practice.Yoga-nidra RelaxationPreliminary preparation of the body. 'Sankalpa' Resolve in Yoga-nidra
A personal goal is programmed into the unconsciousness. 'Sankalpa' (resolve)A very special feature of Yognidra is 'Sankalpa', a positive resolve about the aim in life. The relaxed body and mind are ideal soil for making a resolve. The 'Sankalpa' is affirmative autosuggestion of the statement. These are short, positive, precise about what you want to achieve.e.g."I am successful,""I am peaceful,""I am becoming happier, healthier and more relaxed","I will awaken my spiritual potential", "I will be successful in my all undertakings", "I will achieve total health","I will be a positive help in spiritual progress of others", etc. This recitation of auto suggestions in relaxed mind (alpha level of brain waves) sinks easily into subconscious mind and direct the conscious mind to transform the positive thought into reality.Rotation of Consciousness in yoganidraThe consciousness is taken on a tour of the whole body in a structured fashion. The person has to just visualize the parts of the body to rotate the awareness. one has to shift one’s awareness from one part to the other. The whole process should be a pleasure and not a burden. There should not be any anxiety or expectation.Respiration
