What is Yoga Nidra?

Yoga Nidra is an ancient supercharged sleep-based meditation technique that that has the power to take you to the innermost levels of relaxation where your whole body and being are permeated by peace of mind and profound stillness.

Combining breath, body and and awareness techniques, you consciously enter the twilight zone between waking and sleeping,  enabling you to rest more as the space beyond the mind and less as the mind itself.

Yoga Nidra takes you to the ‘ZERO STRESS ZONE” where 45 minutes of Yoga Nidra is said to be as regenerative as 3 hours of sleep.
