“Nidrâ” means sleep in Sanskrit, yoga nidrâ is thus the yogic sleep.
It is a technique of physical, emotional and mental relaxation, tant can improve the quality of sleep, but also relaxation and better stress and emotion management. In a state between awakening and sleepiness while remaining conscious, yoga nidrâ begins with a deep relaxation session for the body. Then comes Sankalpa (positive short affirmation chosen by the practitioner) and visualizations.
The session typically lasts one hour.
Below is a 15 minutes relaxation (in French but still deeply soothing !). It is quite possible that you fall asleep before the end, it does not matter, start again another day, with practice you will remain increasingly aware !
