Yoga Nidra is a special kind of yoga that focuses solely on relaxation - specifically 'guided relaxation'. If you have attended yoga classes, you may have experienced something a little like it if your teacher has asked you to lie down and to listen to their voice while they talk you through visualisations for example. Although this doesn't take you as 'deep' as yoga nidra, for many, it is still the highlight of their yoga session - guided relaxation is a wonderful, calming experience.
Yoga Nidra is like having meditation done for you.

It literally means 'awareness sleep' and relies on the teacher's voice to take your mind away from all the stresses and challenges in your life, and to help you achieve a deep and rejuvenating rest. And its real beauty is that you can do it at home. Thanks to the Yoga for the Mind CD, your teacher is available whenever you want!
