Relaxation is nature’s way of recharging; it cools down the body just like the radiator of the car. Even while trying to rest, the average person expends a lot of physical and mental energy through tension. When the mind and body are constantly overworked, their natural efficiency diminishes. In order to achieve perfect relaxation, three methods are used by yogis: physical, mental, and spiritual relaxation.
Meditation creates profound changes in the psyche. By curbing and stilling the oscillations of the mind, meditation brings mental peace. As meditation brings about a prolonged positive state of mind, it rejuvenates body cells and delays decay or ageing. Stilling the mind helps to resolve fears and anxiety. It thus helps to find peace, contentment, and inner happiness.
Yogic science gives as much importance to certain cleansing processes as it does to asana or pranayama. Without regular cleansing of the system one cannot gain maximum benefit from yoga practices. Without purification of the body one will not be ready for the higher practices of yoga. Body cleansing is brought about by the practice of the shatkarmas or six purificatory techniques which are very important from the point of view of physical and mental health. These simple techniques are also highly valuable in healing internal disorders. There are six main groups of shatkarmas or yogic cleansers as follows:
Yoga Nidra which is derived from the teachings of the Tantras, is a powerful technique to consciously relax. In Yoga Nidra, sleep is not regarded as relaxation. Yoga nidra could be termed as “dynamic sleep”. It is a systematic method of inducing complete physical, mental and emotional relaxation. The term is derived from Sanskrit: yoga means union or one-pointed awareness and nidra means sleep. During the practice of Yoga Nidra one appears to be asleep, but the consciousness is functioning at a deeper level of awareness. Therefore yoga nidra is often referred to as psychic sleep or deep relaxation with inner awareness. In this threshold state between sleep and wakefulness, contact with the subconscious and unconscious dimensions occurs spontaneously.
