Have you experienced the divine sleep of Yoga Nidra? It is
a powerful technique in which you learn to consciously relax. The body may appear to be asleep, but the mind is awake, and
the consciousness is functioning at a deep level of awareness. Swami Satyananda Saraswati says, "Yoga Nidra is the
doorway to samadhi." Scientists show how brainwave patterns change from beta (awake, alert) to alpha (deep relaxation, visionary state, archetypal imagery) to theta (dreaming sleep) to delta (deep
sleep). The practice of Yoga Nidra leads you into the alpha state. Alpha brain waves are interspersed between alternating
periods of beta and theta predominance. The consciousness is poised on the borderline between wakefulness and dreaming for
an extended period of time. Psychologists call this state between wakefulness
and dreaming the hypnagogic state. In this relaxed state, you may choose to plant a seed of intention, knowing that
the consciousness is receptive to accessing the deep wisdom of the body, or simply rest, completely and thoroughly. It is
said that 45 minutes of Yoga Nidra is as relaxing and beneficial as four hours of sleep.
