Yoga Nidra is considered to be Pratyahara. Pratyahara is one of the eight limbs of yoga, as mentioned in the Yoga Sutras of Pantajali. The meaning of Pratyahara is the withdrawal of the senses as a form of nourishment.
“In yoga nidra, we restore our body, senses, and mind to their natural function and awaken a seventh sense that allows us to feel no separation, that only sees wholeness, tranquility, and well-being,” says Richard Miller, yoga teacher and clinical psychologist
Yoga Nidra is used successfully to treat many conditions including chronic pain, sleep problems, depression and anxiety, and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
