Sankalpa – Will, intention, resolution, is considered the guiding principle of Yoga Nidra that was developed in the second half of the 20th century, by yoga master Satyananda Saraswati. This special Yoga philosophy is based on a combination of deep relaxation and meditation exercises. The word comes from Sanskrit and means nothing less than “sleep”.

With the relaxation exercises one wants to achieve exactly that, the physical, mental and spiritual activity should come to rest. The Nidra philosophy wants the brain to be brought into a completely conscious state of calm. Thus stress, nervousness and difficult feelings are to be reduced. In contrast to normal sleep, Yoga-Nidra should be more beneficial, heal illnesses and lead to a higher level of consciousness. Self-knowledge as a source of inspiration can also be achieved in just 30 minutes of practice.


The book by Andreas Ziörjen introduces the exciting topic of Yoga-Nidra with practical tips, a detailed introduction and a well comprehensible way of expression. In just a few minutes of training per day, stress can be reduced and the subconscious can be strengthened.
