Experience the sleep of the yogis with the ancient tantric practise of yoga nidra, a systematic unfolding of physical, mental and emotional relaxation that gives deep rest and rejuvenation. Yoga Nidra is both a state of being, a union with sleep, and a practice, where consciousness is guided to that deeper level of awareness. The sleep of the yogis is something we experience daily, although only fleetingly, those transitional moments to and from sleep. Yoga Nidra prolongs these moments, known as the hypnagogic stage, and provides a gateway to the subconscious to generate creative insights and understanding.

It is accessible to almost everyone, as the only requirement is to lie on the back for some time and follow the guidance with interest. The body remains still while awareness moves gradually on a journey of discovery through the physical body and to the more subtler dimensions of the breath and mind.

While consciousness floats on the tipping point between waking and sleeping, momentarily disengaged from the temple of the body, a clear path is provided to the subconscious, intuitive mind and is used to generate creative insights.

As a therapeutic tool, numerous medical studies demonstrate that it has both a curative and preventative effect on a number of conditions, such as stress, anxiety, frustration, insomnia, high blood pressure, and their consequences. A key part of the practice is to formulate an intention, or resolution, known as a sankalpa, a short and simple statement that articulates a meaningful and fulfilling desire.

“At the point of meaningful rest when sleep has not yet come
and external wakefulness vanishes, at this point being is revealed.”

Vigyana Bhairava Tantra ca. 2000 BCE
