Yoga Nidra: Method & Benefits


We should make yoga an important part of our life, be it yoga asanas, pranayama, or Yoga Nidra. The word before or behind which yoga is attached has the same meaning as ecstasy i.e. to connect with that God and to experience bliss. It is also an aspect of that which leads us to emptiness, do not see it as a Shavasana, nor is it done like Shavasana.

How to do:

  • Before doing this, keep in mind that your stomach is empty, do not do it by overeating or do it only after 4-5 hours of having a meal.
  • Sit in Padmasana for some time and do Pranayama, if you cannot do Padmasana, then apply Ardhapadmasana.
  • After that lie down straight and focus on your heart chakra.
  • After that turn to your right side, this will start your moon tone.
  • Often you must have also seen the picture of Lord Vishnu in which he sleeps on his right side.

Difference between meditation and Yoga Nidra?

  • Lord Shiva meditates and Vishnu does Yoga Nidra. There is no other yogi greater than these two in this entire universe.
  • The first difference is that meditation is done sitting and Yoga Nidra is done lying down.
  • In meditation, the breath moves through both nostrils, whereas yoga Nidra only activates the moon tone.
  • In meditation, the body is first controlled, then the mind. Whereas in Yoga Nidra the body already becomes loose and it becomes easier to concentrate the mind.
