In Classical Yoga Nidra we guide the physical body to deep relaxation so that we can expand and connect to the energy of the life we wish to live: healthy, stress-free, successful, accomplished etc. In modern science terms we use neuroplasticity to guide us towards the life we chose to live. It is NOT sleep. It is active creation. We practice relaxed, lying down in corpse pose (savasana). You can read more here:
