Yoga Nidra

“The present system of Yoga Nidra, which I devised, enables people who are unfamiliar with Sanskrit mantras to gain the full benefit of the traditional nyasa. It can be beneficially practised by people of any religion or culture.”

Swami Satyananda Saraswati

Swami Satyananda Saraswati the founder of the Bihar School of Yoga (BSY) Munger recognized that these complex and ancient tantric techniques had great potential, but needed to be translated to fit our modern lives. He saw a deep need for a simple technique with great power to reduce stress and suffering. He simplified the ancient yoga-tantra methods and made them both accessible and practical.

Yoga Nidra means psychic sleep. It is both a systematic deep relaxation technique and an ancient tantric meditation. This systematic method of inducing complete mental, emotional and physical relaxation is suitable for all practitioners. It is a versatile technique which has been used for deep relaxation, for educational purposes and to harmonize the deeper unconscious.

This Yoga Nidra meditation will be taught step-by-step over a period of five sessions by Atma Darshan Yogashram.
