Media and Publications - Maa Yoga Ashram (Arogya Dham)

Yoga is a Sanskrit word meaning “union” and Nidra means “dream”. Therefore in Yoga Nidra the mind of the individual, the body and the intellect are in a complete state of relaxation and may even seem to be sleeping, but in reality their consciousness is active and functioning at a higher level deep. In a person’s yoga dream he is taught how to get out of the waking state, go beyond the dream state and even go into deep sleep, but nevertheless stay awake.
