Why Yoga Nidra ?

Yoga Nidra is one of the powerful tools in the field of Yoga and very useful practice in our daily life. It brings an incredible Relaxation, Calmness, Quietness and Clarity to our life. It is a systematic method of inducing complete physical, mental and emotional relaxation. Yoga nidra is one of the practices of pratyahara where the awareness is internalized and has its origin in the ancient tantric practice called Nyasa.

Literally, Yoga Nidra means “Psychic Sleep” i.e. sleep with a trace Awareness. In the practice of yoga nidra, the body fall asleep, the subconscious and unconscious mind remain open and awake to listen the instructions. In psychology, the state achieved in yoga nidra is termed the “Hypnogogic State”, a state between sleep and wakefulness. In this threshold state between sleep and wakefulness, contact with subconscious and unconscious dimensions occur easily and spontaneously.

Yoga Nidra is a state of conscious deep sleep that gives deep rest and relaxation to both body-mind. The state of yoga nidra removes fatigue and tensions, brings a sense of deep rejuvenation and restores elasticity of body-mind. It is also used by yogis to purify the Samskaras, the deep impressions that are the driving force behind our habitual pattern of living.

However in Meditation, we remain in the waking state of consciousness, able to aware and watch our thought processes, emotions, body sensations in an equanimous attitude. Meditation helps to expand our awareness to unconscious and sub-conscious state. Yoga Nidra is a systematic method in developing inner awareness. Thus, it is a doorway to the meditative state.

Importance and Application of Yoga Nidra

The brain is the linking mediator between the mind, body and emotions. In yoga nidra intensifying the awareness of the body stimulates the brain. The systematic rotation of Attention and Awareness on each and every body parts through the instructions calm down the whole nervous system, mind and enhance Pranic flow throughout the body. This Pranic flow and calming down effect on body-mind brings in a deep experience of rest, relaxation and rejuvenation to body, mind and emotion.

During stress the sympathetic nervous system becomes activated due to which the organism adopts the ‘fight or flight’ mechanism. In normal circumstances, the parasympathetic system takes over after the emergency goes. But mostly it has been seen that the sympathetic system remains active most of the time resulting in the experience of distress. Practice of yoga nidra calm down the sympathetic nervous system and active the parasympathetic nervous system which brings harmony within. This harmonious state of body-mind able to withstand easily the stressful situations without losing balance and prevents the development of stress-related diseases.

The main causes of psychosomatic diseases are tensions, conflicts, depressions and frustrations of the mind manifest in the form of physical symptoms and diseases. Yoga nidra aims at releasing those suppressed and repressed tensions, conflicts from the subconscious and unconscious, unburdening both body-mind for quick recovery.

Due to fast, hectic and demanding lifestyle, most of us live in continuous high level of stress, anxiety and tensions which makes us prone to psychological and psychosomatic disorders. Modern psychology as well as yogic philosophy believes in three kinds of tension – muscular tensions, emotional tensions and mental tensions – which can be progressively released through the systematic and regular practice of yoga nidra and meditation. Muscular tension results from nervous and endocrinal imbalances. It manifests in the form of stiffness and rigidity in the physical body. In the practice of yoga nidra the body is progressively relaxed, which in turn releases the accumulated muscular tensions.

In day to day life individuals fail to express their emotions freely and openly. As a result, the emotions are repressed and manifest in the form of emotional tension. In the practice of yoga nidra, the practitioner slowly moves towards the deeper realms of the mind where he or she confronts the deep-rooted emotional tensions. When the practitioner recognizes these emotional tensions with full awareness and a witnessing attitude, then repressed emotions are released and the practitioner becomes calm and tranquil.

Due to excessive activity on the mental plane, the mind always remains in a state of arousal and active which results in mental tension. Even during sleep mind goes on functioning by way of dreams and nightmares. In the practice of yoga nidra, especially in rotation of consciousness and breath awareness, the mind slowly calm down and relaxed, thereby releasing the mental tensions. Hence, through the regular and sincere practice of yoga nidra, tensions, stress and conflicts at the physical, emotional and mental level can be minimized.

The practice of yoga nidra enables ones to receive intuitions from the unconscious and subconscious mind. This intuitions received in yoga nidra enable oneself to find the solution to various problems of life easily.

Creativity is a characteristic of a relaxed, calm and quite mind. When the mind is totally relaxed, the awareness slowly enters the deeper realms (subconscious and unconscious) of the mind and the person becomes aware of the creative and intuitive faculties. Regular practice of yoga nidra helps in making a bridge between the conscious and unconscious mind. Slowly one becomes tuned with the unconscious workings and then the power of creativity automatically awakens.

Practice of yoga nidra brings a profound sense of joy and well-being to the practitioner. Yoga nidra is also a way to connect with deeper, spiritual self. It restores the body, senses, and mind to their natural function that allows to feel Oneness, wholeness, tranquility, and well-being.

As Practice of Yoga Nidra based on internal rotation of awareness and good access to subconscious and unconscious mind through outside instructions, hence it becomes a good preparatory practice for the meditation.
