Yoga Nidra is also known as “Yogic Sleep” or in western terms “Lucid Dreaming”. It’s a state where the mind is in a dream state but you are still conscious and awake. It’s different from the dreams you remember upon awakening from having been asleep for a few hours. In my own experience it is when I am able to lay down in Savasana (corpse pose) with my body totally and completely relaxed, my breath is slow, and I can see (with eyes closed) my dreams. I have noticed in this Yoga Nidra state, I clarify goals or cultivate creativity. This form of yoga is stated by Rod Stryker to be highly restorative, and if practiced along with your Sankalpa it can be very effective in accomplishing your “dreams”. It was suggested by Stryker to be practiced 2-3 times a week to help gain the rest needed for ultimate wellness and to be most effective in realizing your destiny.
