Yoga Nidra is one of Swami Satyananda Saraswati’s major contributions to modern-day spiritual life. He derived the practice from the Tantras, where it is defined as psychic and dynamic sleep. It is a method of relaxing by creating one-pointedness of mind. The seminar leader, Dr Nalini Sahay, trained with Swamiji at the Bihar School of yoga.
