“Yoga nidra is the yoga of aware sleep. In this lies the secret of self healing. Yoga Nidra is a pratyahara technique in which the distractions of the mind are contained and the mind is relaxed.”
~ Satyananda Saraswati
What is the difference between Yoga Nidra and Meditation?
~ Meditation focuses on softening the mind – which then softens the body.
~ Yoga Nidra softens the body first – which then allows the mind to soften.
Nadi Shodhana is the practice of alternate nostril breathing. Nadi is a Sanskrit word meaning “channel” or “flow” and Shodhana means “purification.” Nadi Shodhana therefore is a practice aimed at purifying or cleansing the main energy channels of the body to bring them into balance.
This yoga nidra practice that I have recorded for you incorporates a very short Nadi Shodhana practice. I hope you enjoy it.
