Yoga nidra, also known as "yogic sleep," is a state of consciousness between waking and sleeping, similar to the "placebo" state you may experience just before falling asleep or upon waking up. During yoga nidra, the body is completely relaxed while the practitioner remains aware and in a state of mindfulness. This state of consciousness is believed to be the point at which the subconscious mind is most receptive to positive suggestion and change.

The practice of yoga nidra has its roots in ancient India and has been used for centuries as a way to alleviate stress, anxiety, and other mental and physical ailments. It has also been shown to improve sleep, increase focus and concentration, and reduce blood pressure.

To practice yoga nidra, one simply needs to lie down in a comfortable position, either on the floor or on a mat, with a pillow and blankets for support. The practitioner then follows a series of guided instructions, typically given by a teacher or through a recording, which take them through a series of body scans and relaxation techniques. The goal is to reach a state of complete relaxation and awareness, where the mind is quiet and the body is at ease.

While yoga nidra may seem simple on the surface, it can be a powerful tool for self-discovery and transformation. By bringing awareness to the present moment and letting go of any distractions or judgment, practitioners can tap into their inner wisdom and find a sense of peace and clarity.

So next time you're feeling overwhelmed or stressed out, or before you are stressed out ! Consider giving yoga nidra a try. Who knows, you might just find your new favorite way to relax and recharge.
