Yoga Nidra is an ancient Indian Art of Conscious Relaxation and often takes you to the fourth state of your mind. In this state of mind, you feel extremely relaxed and receptive which is an ideal condition to reprogram your sub conscious mind. You are required to think of a Sankalpa or a Resolution representing your goal and this ancient tantra or technology helps you to manifest your goal. Participants who regularly practice such yoga nidra and mindfulness program have reported to have more mental clarity, focus, creativity, personal discipline, happiness, better sleep quality, increased self confidence and total health (Physical, Mental, Emotional, Social and Spiritual Wellbeing). This ancient practice of yoga nidra is blended with the modern mindfulness concept for better results.
Participants who practice two times, once before going to sleep and one more time during a wakeful state have reported that the program can be offering more nourishment to the mind with positive thoughts. Even if you fall asleep, according to Swami Sataynanda, the pioneer of yoga nidra, "your mind would still learn" these life coaching concepts. If you do it once before going to sleep in a lying down position and once more like a mindful meditation while you are awake would be highly recommended. You are not supposed to intellectualize or try to understand during this practice. Let the whole brain learn in a very relaxed and receptive way, like a sponge absorbs water. In a nutshell, you would experience our true intent: "Train Your Mind and Heal Your Life."
