With IIPHG & Samay Sathi: An initiative of IIPHG and Partners for mental peace and wellbeing of patients in Covid Isolation.

The objective:

To provide techniques to enhance relaxation and improve quality of sleep


Yoga Nidra works to facilitate withdrawal of senses in wards. It is also called “psychic” sleep when the mind is fully awake and the body sleeps!  During Yoga Nidra, participants remain lied down horizontally with the face and torso facing up (supine position) in a position known as “corpse pose,” while the instructor slowly guides them into deep relaxation using specific techniques in different stages. The relaxation provided via Yoga Nidra has so many benefits similar to the research on the Relaxation Response.
