What is Yoga Nidra?

Updated: Jun 19

We are running an ONLINE 30-hr Yoga Nidra teacher training with Melanie Cooper and Jennie Wadsten on the 9-11 October, 2020. Here we share Melanie Cooper's insights into what Yoga Nidra is and what this rich practice has to offer:

Like Yoga itself, Yoga Nidra is a process and a state. You can be in the “state of Yoga Nidra” which is a state of consciousness between waking and sleeping. And Yoga Nidra is a set of techniques put together to help you get into that state. There are many techniques in the Yoga Nidra “tool box”, so you can design a practice to suit different purposes from simple relaxation to getting to sleep at night to unlocking creativity.
