From ancient India, yoga has evolved into the most popular complementary health practice in the United States. It typically incorporates physical postures, breathing techniques, and aspects of meditation. Its practitioners often seek to enhance flexibility, alleviate stress, or promote better sleep.

Numerous yoga styles exist, each varying in difficulty, movement, and the specific postures and breathing exercises employed. One such style is yoga nidra, which is meditative yoga designed to induce deep relaxation. Studies indicate that yoga nidra may offer various benefits for sleep improvement.

So, what exactly is yoga nidra? It’s an ancient relaxation method involving guided mental imagery while lying on one’s back, known in yoga as Shavasana or corpse pose. While its origins date back centuries, yoga nidra became publicly known in the 1960s through the teachings of Swami Satyananda Saraswati.

“yoga nidra” derives from Sanskrit and is often interpreted as “yogic sleep.” The practice aims to induce a state of relaxation akin to sleep while maintaining conscious awareness of one’s surroundings.

Scientific studies suggest that yoga nidra can induce a hypnagogic state characterized by slow brain waves, where the body may be asleep while the mind remains alert. Consequently, researchers speculate that yoga nidra could be beneficial in addressing insomnia.
