Although today’s mass media presents yoga as a physical practice, the ancient masters of yoga clearly state that its foundation is mental. Even sage Patanjali, who is considered to be the father of yoga, gives the definition of yoga as: “yogas chitta vritti nirodhah”, which means Yoga is the cessation of identification via the whirl of the thinking-reasoning mind.
Patanjali is famous for his ancient eightfold path of yoga. The idea is to follow a path of positive mind control that leads one to the living understanding of being that is so effective, that for the greatest students and masters of yoga, this goal is the only goal. Pantajali called it Samadhi. It is also known as Nirvana, Union with the Divine Intelligence, Cosmic Consciousness, Ultimate Bliss, Alignment with Natural Order.
The Yoga Nidra Yoga approach that James Traverse is offering is one that honours the original intention of Patanjali and the founders of yoga. This Yoga Nidra practice is a means to directly experience the mental control and relaxation that Patanjali and the masters of yoga speak about as folows:
“Control of the mind is said to be the highest Yoga. It is like control of an unruly horse which must be made to obey its rider.” ~ Bhagavad Purana, XI.20
“When the agitations of the mind are under control, the mind becomes like a transparent crystal and has the power of becoming whatever form is presented.” ~ Patanjali
“An improvement in posture and breathing is not the sole nor even the primary aim of yoga. Instead, it is either a therapeutic method of freeing the mind from false beliefs, or the insight into ultimate reality, the dharmas, achievable by this method. Yoga is an intrinsic and integrated system consisting of metaphysics, the philosophy of mind, the theory of knowledge, ethics and the philosophy of language” ~ Patanjali
“All impressions and reactions are known as ‘mental fluctuations’ or ‘thought-waves’, and yoga is the control of thought-waves in the mind.” ~ Patanjali

Yoga Nidra is a means for you to taste the true nature of being.
Yoga Nidra Meditation is a way to connect with your spiritual self. Its profound relaxation lets your body, mind and sense doors return to their original innocence, as in infancy. The openness and well-being that flowers in Yoga Nidra practice is the experience of non-separation, wholeness, and tranquility that is beyond the understanding of the thinking-reasoning mind.
When asked about the reasons behind the decision to provide free training on such an extremely valuable experience, James Traverse, Yoga Educator of Nisarga Sound Silence said, “It is a gift that I want to share with folks after over 40 years of yoga study and teaching.”
