Yoga-nidra may be rendered in English as "yoga sleep". It is a sleep-like state that occurs with some practitioners of meditation, details of which have been handed down by guru-to-disciple transmission (parampara) within the Indian religions. These aspects may include relaxation and guided visualization techniques as well as the psychology of dream, sleep and yoga. Yoga nidra should not be confused with hypnotic states, known as "yoga tandra".
