Yoga Nidra creates an altered state of consciousness allowing the practitioner to enter the realm of subconscious and create effective changes in their life through physical rejuvenation, and the introduction of positive affirmation. During a typical class, teachers use a variety of techniques — including guided imagery and body scanning — to aid relaxation. In Yoga Nidra, you leave the Waking state, go through the Dreaming state, and into the Deep Sleep state, yet remain fully awake.
Yoga Nidra For InsomniaIf you have difficulty falling asleep, or awaken too often, or for too long a stretch during the night you might benefit from yoga nidra. Yoga nidra is a a guided meditation where you systematically relax all parts of your body  one body part at a time.
The actual practice of yoga nidra involves nothing more than reclining and listening to simple instructions. This yoga nidra collection comes from a highly regarded Indian institute, the Bihar School of Yoga, and is excellent.
Neuroscientists have discovered that the practice of yoga dramatically increases the brain chemical, GABA, which may explain why yoga nidra is so effective. A few days ago, I was doing some research for my up and coming workshop on Yoga Nidra, during this exploration one thing that dawned on me was the degradation of human consciousness we experience today is highly linked to the immense tensions in the body-mind system. If we trace back in the last century or so, we have seen a huge shift in the way of life throughout the world. As a result, we are seeing many new diseases, which are unheard of a century ago, are becoming a health and economic burden to families and countries. Psychosomatic illnesses such as diabetes, hypertension, migraine, asthma, ulcers, digestive disorders and skin diseases arise from tensions in the body and mind. In Singapore, over the last 5 years we’ve seen an increase in the number of sudden death after a rigorous exercise like a marathon run or physical fitness test. Swami Satyananda Saraswati is one great yoga teacher who had contributed so much in the field of yoga during his 86 years of lifespan. He said that “Whether you think too much or you don’t think at all, you work physically or not, you accumulate tensions.
The ancient yogis, sages and masters who had worked on human consciousness, they developed different yogic science to tackle human being’s challenges of the past, present and future. Yogic psychology and modern psychology states the three basic types of tension which are responsible for all the agonies and sufferings of modern life. Muscular tensions are related to body itself, the nervous system and endocrinal imbalances.
Unless we are free from these 3 tensions: muscular, mental and emotional tensions, we are never relaxed. Yoga Nidra is a systematic technique in which you learn to relax consciously at the physical, mental and emotional levels. Currently, I am doing an experiment for the next 2 months using Yoga Nidra to improve my son’s Mandarin by reading a passage to him every night after he falls asleep and then he reads the same passage to me the next morning.  Through Yoga Nidra, one can gain new knowledge and learn new languages. My personal experience with Yoga Nidra is that it is a more efficient and effective form of psychic and physiological rest and rejuvenation than conventional sleep.
In essence, it is time we revive this powerful Vedic Science of conscious relaxation and self-transformation which is time–tested and yields reliable and permanent results with no side-effects.

It is intended to induce full-body relaxation and a deep meditative state of consciousness. Most people are familiar with the power of affirmations, but affirmations can be made infinitely more effective if one is to access the subconscious mind to plant the seed of a new belief. Unlike a quick Savasana at the end of an asana practice, Yoga Nidra allows enough time for practitioners to physiologically and psychologically sink into it — usually between 20 to 45 minutes. Having suffered from chronic fatigue for almost 15 years, as a result of food intolerance and allergies, Carmen re-established her health through yoga and nutrition. Books about yoga nidra teach how to record your own yoga nidra guided meditation, but it’s unnecessary.
As she guides you through the practice of yoga nidra you may find yourself emptying your mind and becoming more free of the obsessive thoughts which may be keeping you from sleeping. That’s long enough to help you relax, and maybe get to the point of sleep, but not so long that you drop off before the end of the track and thus have your iPhone on all night. The rise of industrialisation, consumerism, digitalisation and globalisation had brought about a dispersion of human energies at all levels.
Even the Medical Science are not able to cope with this rise of new epidemic of stress-related disorders caused by our inability to adapt to the highly fast pace of modern lifestyle.
The leading causes of death in many developed countries are cancer and heart disease which both stem from tension. These people exercised regularly but they dropped dead out of sudden! Although the medical science has yet to establish the real cause of the sudden death, as a yogi, intuitively I know that it is due to a highly tensed nervous system from a stressful lifestyle. He founded the Bihar School of Yoga in 1963 and had done many researches, written many books and delivered discourses based on Vedic Sciences. These are easily removed by the deep physical relaxation attained in the state of Yoga Nidra. In order to relax completely, the inner tensions of the body, emotions and mind must be released. You appear to be asleep but the consciousness is functioning at a deeper level of awareness.  In this threshold state between sleep and wakefulness, contact with the subconscious and unconscious dimensions occurs spontaneously in the process. Yoga Nidra is one such powerful science that you have to experience it yourself to know its full benefits and miraculous power. Yoga Nidra is a part of the Pratyahara, one of the eight limbs of yoga, and is so inherently powerful that it has been kept secret for nearly 4000 years until the 1960’s when it was reintroduced to western students by Parmahansa Stayananda Saraswati. Once you reach this deepest state of physical and mental relaxation, the nervous system unwinds, which is the foundation of the body’s well-being, and the mind becomes receptive to new concepts. As a result of her experiences Carmen has a great enthusiasm for sharing her knowledge on yoga and wellness. Others use many sensory diversions such as drinking a cup of coffee or tea, light a cigarette or read newspaper, a book or watch television in the disguise of relaxation.
We have become so engrossed in material pursuits and pleasures of the senses that we are not aware of what has been happening to our body-mind and consciousness.
The modern medical science had failed miserably to deliver a holistic health solution to man because the real problem does not lie in the body, it originates in man’s changing ideals, in his way of thinking and feeling.
He devised Yoga Nidra from traditional Tantric practices and has created a major impact on the world of yoga.

Hence, to create a more peaceful world, we must first learn how to relax and harmonise our own body and mind system. Often we refuse to recognize them, so they are repressed and the resulting tensions become more and more deeply rooted. Throughout our life, the experiences registered by our consciousness are accumulated in the mental body. Those who adopt this technique in their daily routine soon experience profound changes in their sleeping habits.
As we access the subconscious through specifically designed sequences of visualizations you will have an opportunity to implant an affirmation of your choice, which will then manifest in your life. We prefer authenticity, and also like to know that guided meditations are ones which have been used for centuries rather than thrown together for a New Age market. But these will never suffice as a scientific definition of relaxation because true relaxation is actually an experience where you must remain in awareness.
The mind of man has completely lost the point of balance and harmony in every sphere of existence.
Plagued by a dissipation of energy and a dispersion of ideals, how can we expect to experience harmony in our body and mind?! Tensions culminate in the different layers of the human personality such as the muscular, emotional and mental systems. These inner world scientists discovered the powerful Tantric science of Yoga Nidra (also known as yogic sleep or psychic sleep). It is not possible to relax these tensions through ordinary sleep or relaxation, only a method like Yoga Nidra can tranquilize the entire emotional structure of the mind.
It is the tension, hypertension and total tensions that are causing all the body-mind disturbances.
I bow down to him in deep gratitude for opening my mind to this great Science of Yoga Nidra and allow me to share this gift with the world. The underlying cause behind man’s abnormal behaviour lies in the accumulated tensions on the mental plane.
This is one of the secrets of many great yogis who have managed to achieve so much in one short lifetime. Unless as a human race, we learn how to free ourselves from tensions, we will not be able to solve many of our problems in life. Yoga Nidra is the science of true relaxation which enables each one of us to dive deep down into the realms of the subconscious mind, thereby releasing and relaxing mental tensions and establishing harmony in all facets of our being.
At this moment, your intellectual mind is operating, but when you are able to relax, the subconscious and unconscious levels of the mind open. This state of deep relaxation is attained by turning one’s awareness inwards, away from the outer sensorial experiences. If the consciousness can be separated from external awareness and from sleep, it becomes very powerful and can be applied in many transformative expansion in life such as to train the mind to develop greater memory power, to increase knowledge like a new language and creativity or to transform one’s negative tendencies by reprogramming our whole personality, even cure diseases.
