Publisher's Summary

Yoga Nidra is considered to be the state in which the Gods reside. This is because the goal of Yoga Nidra is to attain complete relaxation while maintaining consciousness. The ability to do this allows for our deepest levels of creativity and healing energies to come to the surface. One session of Yoga Nidra is equal to approximately 3 hours of sleep in its ability to rejuvenate. Most of us when we sleep never really relax and truly let go into the deepest recesses of our unconscious and our connection to creation. This is what yoga nidra provides, the deep connection to our unconscious that leads to wholeness.During a Yoga Nidra session you simply lie down and follow the instruction given without strain or undue effort. What comes easily, you do, what doesn't, you let it pass. You will also be asked to choose a resolution, something that you would like to develop in your life that will have a positive effect on your path to healing. The seed of this intention when spoken at the beginning and the end of Yoga Nidra gets planted deep into the unconscious where it motivates changes in behaviour and lifestyle situations that support your deepest heart's desire for healing to unfold. Yoga Nidra is suitable for all, and only requires the inner desire to discover relaxation and wholeness.Yoga Nidra is suitable for all levels and only requires the inner desire to discover relaxation and wholeness.

Yoga Nidra

This audio instruction is the best guided yoga nidra instruction I have found. The instruction is clean and clear (following closely the style from the original text by Swami Satyananda Saraswati)and the results are much like awakening from a good massage. There are other nidra tapes available on the internet - I explored several from Amazon and they are rather strange - poorly read/ strange imagery, droning vocals etc. Stick with this one if you want a relaxing, soothing result. Purchase Saraswati's text Yoga Nidra if you need further explanation on the rationale behind the practice.

Yoga in Bed by Johnna Trimmer is better.

Skip therapy. Yoga Nidra heals the central nervous system, releasing trauma, and allowing us to release from reactivity. With regular listening just before sleep, and just before getting out of bed, we can become peaceful, balanced, and calm, even when "triggered" by "hot topics" or family members, heavy work stress and more. Finding several good meditations is essential to listening regularly.

The voice in this YN is nice but it lacks music, so I still have favorites that out-rank it. My list in order of recommend:
1.
Yoga In Bed by Johnna Trimmer
2.
Swami Janakananda
(accent is distracting at first, but this includes 3 awesome different versions)
3.
Richard Muller (really nice meditations, a little flat in voice & lacks music)
4.
The Yoga Sleep Ritual by Ann Dryer

Not my favorite:
Swami Bharati (monotone)
