Yoga nidra enables practitioners to reach a state (known as turiya) between consciousness and dreams. Yoga nidra induces relaxation throughout the nervous system, creating deep psychophysiological relaxation. It can be used to help sufferers of anxiety, depression and other psychosomatic disorders by alleviating suffering and giving symptomatic relief. This guided practice is suitable for anyone and can be used as a tool for deep meditation, relaxation or an aid to sleep.
