Yoga Nidra, which is derived from the tantras, is a powerful technique in which you learn to relax consciously. In yoga nidra, sleep is not regarded as relaxation. People feel that they are relaxing when they collapse in 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. The term yoga nidra is derived from two Sanskrit words, yoga meaning union or one-pointed awareness, and nidra which means sleep. During the practice of yoga nidra, one appears to be asleep, but the consciousness is functioning at a deeper level of awareness.

Satyananda's premise is simple and elegant. Our minds are mainly turned outward, concentrated on the external events. When turned inward, our minds are mainly obsessed with unresolved events from the past or worries related to the present or future. These become additional sources of stress. We try to relax by engaging in activities such as reading the newspaper or watching television, but we are relaxing in a wrong way. These activities keep our senses active, which do not promote true relaxation.
Yoga nidra is a natural technique for real relaxation, with senses turned off and a peacefully focused mind. This yoga technique does not make our mind lazy and sleepy. Instead, it brings us to a state of complete physical, emotional and mental relaxation and increased inner awareness. Satyananda has brought us this practice through a practical book with detailed descriptions of yoga nidra techniques. Yoga nidra is a meditative technique of aware sleeping; "nidra" means "sleep" in Sanskrit. This meditative technique brings us to a state of conscience between sleep and awakened awareness - in other words, a sleep state without loss of awareness. In such a state, we experience a deep relaxation and latent contents of our subconscious are being awaked. This has a strong healing effect on us and removes obstacles we may find hindering our self-development.
Reading this book will definitely expand your views, but it's the diligent practice of yoga nidra that will yield positive changes. Accept Swami Satyananda's invitation to a spiritual pilgrimage to a state of relaxation and see what happens.

I found the material concise and easy to read despite a slight quaintness in the style that points to it's origins in another era and culture. A delightful and highly useful book
