YOGA NIDRA by Swami Satyananda Saraswati



Yoga Nidra is a powerful technique in which you learn to relax consciously. It is a systematic method of inducing complete physical, mental and emotional relaxation. During the practice of yoga nidra, one appears to be asleep, but the consciousness is functioning at a deeper level of awareness. Here, the state of relaxation is reached by turning inwards, away from outer experiences.

Swami Satyananda Saraswati constructed this new system called Yoga Nidra incorporating the essence of tantric scriptures and practices without having complicated ritualistic drawbacks.

Yoga nidra is a simple practice. Choose a quiet room and lie down comfortably. Listen to the instructions and follow them mentally. The most important thing in yoga nidra is to refrain from sleep.

There are several versions of yoga nidra available but this one by Swami Satyananda Saraswati is perhaps the most powerful. It is very effective. I have benefited from it greatly and received a very positive feedback from all my friends to whom I passed it on. I feel it my humble duty to make it available to anyone who may need it.

For all practitioners of yoga nidra, Swami Satyananda Saraswati’s book ‘Yoga Nidra’ will be especially useful.
