Yoga Nidra (Sleep of the Yogis)

Yoga Nidra has been found to reduce tension and anxiety. The autonomic symptoms of high anxiety such as headache, giddiness, chest pain, palpitations, sweating and abdominal pain respond well. It has been used to help soldiers from war cope with posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD).

Yoga Nidra - a state of consciousness between waking and sleeping
A state in which the body is completely relaxed, and the practitioner becomes systematically and increasingly aware of the inner world of their consciousness.
This state of consciousness is different to meditation in which concentration on a single focus is required.
Sometimes referred to as "lucid sleep," it is among the deepest possible states of relaxation while still maintaining full consciousness.
In lucid dreaming, one is only (or mainly) cognizant of the dream environment and has little or no awareness of one's actual environment.
In yoga nidra the practitioner remains in a state of internalised or withdrawn senses. Only the hearing still connects to the instructions.
The yogic goal of both paths, deep relaxation (yoga nidra) and meditation are the same, a state called samadhi where the mind becomes still. It is a state of being totally aware of the present moment; a one-pointedness of mind.

The practice of yoga nidra has been found to reduce tension and anxiety. The autonomic symptoms of high anxiety such as headache, giddiness, chest pain, palpitations, sweating and abdominal pain respond well. It has been very beneficial to help soldiers from war cope with posttraumatic stress disorder.
