Episode 62: Yoga Nidra Yourself Out! a 65 min Deep Meditative Relaxation

25 Jan

This week’s yoga podcast is once again about something other than asana. I had such a great time recording this Yoga Nidra! Experience deep yogic sleep. It’s a great practice for unwinding and truly diving into the depth of unconsciousness. So fun 😀


intro song: Movin’ from the Pure Creative Spirit CD

yoga nidra music: Gaya from the Desert God CD

I’m not a yoga nidra expert by any means. I had a experience during a Yoga Therapist teacher training to study with Richard Miller and experienced such bliss!

I bought his yoga nidra tapes and practiced it at home that way.

In case you are interested here are some more sources of Yoga Nidra studies and basic information:

Yoga Nidra on Wikipidea

Totally dug Anandmurti Gurumaa’s beautiful voice in this CD. If I were to buy another Yoga Nidra CD I would get this one: http://www.yogawonders.com/
this site has a great introduction to yoga nidra narrated by Anandmurti Gurumaa, so worth it.

Plus she’s got a great website herself: Anandmurti Gurumaa
With a fantastic Charity for girls…Shakti 🙂

Richard Miller and his website Non-Dual.Com

These are a couple of Richard Miller’s books:

Integrative Restoration: The ancient practice of yoga nidra, for easing stress, healing trauma, and awakening to your timeless Presence.

Yoga Nidra: The Meditative Heart of Yoga

Rod Stryker : and his CD Relax Into Greatness
I based my yoga nidra on his CD. His stuff is also great.

All right,

So my birthday is coming up! Some of you have asked to give me something, as a thank you, and what I ask of you is to leave me a review in iTunes. I’d love to see if I can get 50 reviews by my birthday!

    Yoga Nidra is indeed an amazing experience. I got the CD from http://www.yogawonders.com and it was pure blissful hour… the body was as calm as dead but yet something was awakened inside… now i try to practice it daily in the night before sleeping and to my surprise i wake up 10 times more refreshed in the morning…

    Hi Elsie,
    Thank you for your Yoga Nidra podcast. I’ve been using it a lot and it’s ben of great help. I’ve had troubles relaxing and sleeping recently and discovered Yoga Nidra about a month ago. So I am trying different versions out there and bought a few CD’s. I have one you do not mention, which is Rapid Journey by Yogi Amrit Desai. I also bought R Stryker’s CD’s but cannot work with it. I find his voice really too harsh and the pace way too fast. Anyway, I’m going to keep practicing and thank you again for episode 62. Have a great day!

    Interesting! I also bought Rod Stryker and he does have a strking and dynamic voice then I got another YN CD but the walk in the forest etc was a bit scary so I went back to R Stryker. However, I have been this a little over a month but nothing much as happened. I’m still anxious and don’t always sleep straight away. Do you think it’s a case that maybe YN is not for everyone?
