The Yoga Nidra state of consciousness is different from meditation, in which concentration on a single focus is required. In Yoga Nidra the practitioner remains in a state of light pratyahara with four of his senses internalised, that is, withdrawn, and only the hearing still connects to the instructions. Through a unique combination of alert awareness and profound relaxation, Yoga Nidra works by immersing the practitioner in the healing rhythms of the alpha state. Here, you simultaneously access the power of the logical left-brain and the intuitive right brain to align the sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous systems back to homeostasis. Yoga Nidra is a great way to relax your mind and body, calm the nervous, aids with sleep, and many other benefits. No meditation experienced.
