Introduction (1/7)

The first four meditations are Yoga Nidras that have been developed in a particular order. Based on the structure of Satyananda Yoga Nidra, each practice has body awareness, body stillness, breath consciousness, and observation of the mental space. The structure goes through the steps of pratyahara (sense withdrawal), dharana (focus), and dhyana (focused concentration or meditation). The perspective each offers is different. The goal of every practice is to observe and witness the mind and how the mind dictates life. We suggest that each one be practiced over several weeks. If you are new to meditation, it would be better to first practice the pranayamas, each one for one to four weeks, till some level of comfort with it has been reached. Go over the base positions in the Pranayama section to determine what is the most comfortable position for you.
