Yoga nidra is the yoga of sleep and is more restful than taking a nap. It is called psychic sleep because it rests the body and mind together. Your consciousness remains awake during yoga nidra, instead of sleeping in the astral plane such as what happens when you sleep at night.
The stress of daily life can create tension and steal your peace of mind. Yoga Nidra removes these subconconscious stresses and restores the serenity of your mind.
This is done by removing your samskaras, or unconscious karmic impressions, from your energy field. Just like a house needs to be cleaned regularly to maintain a functioning household, the same goes for our mind, which influences our behavior, responses, reactions, and thoughts every day. It also opens the door to illuminate your spiritual pathway.
