Yoga Nidra

Nidra yoga or "yogic sleep" is a dream-like state that yogis may feel during their meditations. It consists of a state of lucid dreaming, where the mind is aware in both worlds - dreaming and waking - but is not associated with either. It is a great way to end a yoga class.

It was created in the 1990s in the United States, with the intention of making ashtanga yoga more accessible to Western people.

What are its benefits?

The effectiveness of yoga in reducing stress and anxiety is well known. It also reduces the intensity of its symptoms, such as headache, dizziness, chest pain, palpitations, sweating and abdominal pain. So much so that yoga has even been used to help soldiers returning from war deal with post-traumatic stress disorder.

How is it done?

It is usually necessary to listen to someone's voice, which can be an individual present in the room or a recorded voice. The practitioner should lie in savasana (dead man's pose) or whatever variation of savasana he or she is most comfortable in. In addition, he/she should listen to the voice guiding the process, paying attention to what it says and surrendering to the practice.

Little by little one can reach this delightful state, but it is not easy. Sometimes one falls asleep or it can happen that the mind ends up thinking about anything. Nevertheless, it is worth trying as many times as necessary until you reach pure bliss.
