5.0 out of 5 stars accessing the subconscious mind, 4 Oct. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Yoga Nidra (Paperback)
Highly recommended yoga technique for deep relaxation and accessing the subconscious mind and thereby releasing tensions. If more people did yoga nidra on a regular basis I am sure the world would be a happier place as people would be more at peace with their inner world.

All yoga teachers should be aware of this book and bring the technique to the aid of all those stressed students who come to their classes. At least they can recommend the many commercially produced CDs on the market by some quite well known Swamis.

One word of caution though: from my experience yoga nidra needs to be practised in moderation i.e. not every day. It is a very powerful technique especially with visualisation. It is enough just to do the body scan - that can be done daily - but the visualisation on top can just be too powerful. I have learnt from experience. Jon Kabat-Zinn provides a very good body-scan meditation. Swami Pragyamurti takes it a step further and brings in some visualisation but just enough. There are some CDs out there that perhaps overdo the content. The 'dosage' of such CDs, especially if they take one through the chakras, needs to be low or you may be asking for an overload of subconscious matter that you can't control. So please, if in doubt keep the dosage low to once or twice a week!

Enjoy in moderation the wonderful world of yoga nidra.
