Swami Satyananda Saraswati has derived Yoga Nidra from the esoteric practice of Nyasa as described in the ancient tantric scriptures.
Yoga Nidra is a technique of pratyahara for the modern age, leading suffering humanity towards a state of deep relaxation and tension-free life.
This simple breath meditation helps to develop a closer awareness of the natural breathing process and to calm the mental fluctuations, resulting in a state of inner peace.
