Title: Hatha Yoga and Yogic Sleep

Hatha yoga and Yogic sleep
Yogic sleep or yoga nidra is a state of
semi-consciousness which lies somewhere between
sleeping and waking. In this state, both the body
and the mind feels relaxed and the practitioner
can also pursue spiritual experiences.
Yoga nidra is quite similar to meditation.
However, it cannot be completely equated with
meditation because unlike meditation, which
emphasises on focus, in Yogic sleep, the
concentration is set free of any focus. In fact,
Yogic sleep can be considered more similar to the
state of lucid dreaming. The positive effects of
Yoga nidra have been scientifically proven after
multiple researches.

the practice of Yoga nidra, one should create the

benefits. Yoga classes in Dubai make sure that
practitioners get the right ambience for

important feature of Yoga nidra is that unlike
other postures of Hatha Yoga, it does not demand
any movement of the body, thus eliminating the
risk of any injury.
An increasing number of Yoga classes in Dubai
have introduced yoga nidra as a part of their
Yoga training package, attracting a huge number
of practitioners. The youth of Dubai knows very
well the benefits of this form of Yoga, and are
taking up such classes with enthusiasm. Rightly

result of regular practice of Yoga nidra. Most

anxiety they accumulate during the busy working
