"Yoga nidra (the term "nidra" means sleep in Sanskrit) is a powerful technique, in which you learn to relax consciously… people feel that they are relaxing when they are collapsing into an easy chair with a cup of coffee, a drink, or a cigarette, and read a newspaper or switch on the television. But this will never suffice as a scientific definition of relaxation.These are only sensory diversions.True relaxation is actually an experience far beyond all this. For absolute relaxation you must remain aware. This is yoga nidra, the state of dynamic sleep.
Yoga nidra is a systematic method of inducing complete physical, mental, and emotional relaxation. During the practice of yoga nidra one appears to be asleep but the consciousness is functioning at a deeper level of awareness. For this reason yoga nidra is often referred to as psychic sleep or deep relaxation with inner awareness. In this threshold state between sleep and wakefulness contact between the subconscious and the unconscious dimensions occurs spontaneously.
In yoga nidra, the state of relaxation is reached by turning inwards, away from outer experiences."
Swami Satyananda Saraswati
