Yoga Nidra is an ancient practice which has its roots in the Tantras and is a very important technique of achieving deep levels of relaxation in all the layers of your being. It comes under the Pratyahaar (withdrawal of the senses) the fifth limb of the Ashtanga Yoga of Patanjali . In the modern times Yoga Nidra technique was redesigned by Swami Satyananda Saraswati by simplifying it in order to make it available to the common man.
