Yoga Nidra Meditation with Anandmurti Gurumaa

Yoga Nidra can be considered a form of meditation, or "yogic sleep," in which a teacher guides their students through deep layers of consciousness. This practice is usually performed laying down and utilizing as many props as needed for comfort. It might include a pillow or bolster under the knees and head, several layers of blanket and eye pillows.


Like in all Yoga, students are encouraged to wear loose fitting and comfortable clothes. They might also choose to bring a journal to record any thoughts or messages that have come to them during the practice.


Yoga Nidra is practiced laying down for the entire time. The teacher will walk their students through a guided meditation.

Yoga Nidra & Brain Waves


Yoga Nidra helps activate the relaxation response in your body. It calms down Beta brain waves (related to consciousness) and helps your brain to transition into Alpha, Theta and Delta states which are related to deeper relaxation and sleep states. Going through these brain waves, your body is capable of processing information and emotions, as well as better perform certain processes like cortisol metabolism, filtering excess from your body.

Yoga Knowledge Disclaimer

I am currently studying yoga through the Bhodi Yoga Center. Bodhi Yoga™ is a therapeutic style of yoga that benefits beginners and challenges advanced students of any age or ability. It utilizes the power of the "slow approach," where the journey is as important as the destination.

Consult your physician before starting any new intense workout regimen.

Yoga is a ancient tradition linked to Indian cultures. I am not of Indian cultural descent and try to practice yoga from a place of learning and deep respect for cultures that made this practice available for all of us. Any yogic knowledge you see on this page was not created or invented by me, rather established and practiced for thousands of years.
