"THE SLEEP OF THE YOGI IS TO BE TOTALLY AWAKENED." 

"It has already been recognized throughout the world that the practice of yoga makes the mind calm, tranquil and healthy. For an average person, it is often difficult to control the mind. For a Yogi, it is practicable to restrain the mind. Yoga Nidra is a technique of Yoga & Tantra, and is an effective means of controlling and regulating the mind. Knowledge of the truth only comes when you are free of tension." 

...when you are able to relax, the subconscious and the unconscious levels of the mind open.~ Swami Satyananda

In Yoga Nidra we create a Sankalpa, (affirmation or life's goal),  this is not used in all yoga nidra practices but in this course we will apply this technique.  "Sankalpa is one of the most effective means of training your mind, shaping your mind, personality, and the direction you want to go in...the purpose of sankalpa is not to fulfill desires but instead to create strength in the structure of the mind." 

When we think of good health, we very often refer to the body, not the mind. The interaction of of the body and the mind has been recognized by the Indian seers since time immemorial.

 

What is Yoga Nidra
Yoga nidra means yogic sleep but the person who practices yoga nidra avoids sleep in the whole process. Although you are awake, your awareness is different from the normal state of wakefulness. Your state of consciousness in yoga nidra occupies a stage which is in between the usual state of wakefulness and that of sleep." ~ N.C. Panda

Yoga Nidra is a state of consciousness, a way of being and an experience.
