To practice Yoga Nidra, the practitioner simply lies in Savasana (corpse pose), or if this is not possible sits comfortably with support. Then either with a guide or a recording Yoga Nidra begins. The general Yoga Nidra system takes the practitioner through a sensing journey often scanning the body, then experiencing opposite sensations, there is an intention set as if it has been realized and then some kind of a journey will begin before the practitioner is brought back to wakefulness and their original intention is embedded.The Yoga Nidra system of meditation will guide the practitioner deeply within themselves. Dropping through each level of the energetical body or Koshas, the practitioner will indeed be somewhere between sleep and awareness. Being in this state brings so many benefits….
