I remember the first time I enjoyed that “what was that?” experience of Yoga Nidra guided meditation.

It started off as what looked like a pyjama party on my first yoga teacher training in 2007—all of us lying down on the floor, cuddled up under blankets, at the end of a long day of learning. … closing our eyes and listening to the meditation …and then emerging from it, feeling like I had been transported to another world, while at the same time remaining quietly awake and aware throughout the blissful journey. “What was that?” was quickly followed by, “Gimme more, please!”


Even more remarkable to me has been the opportunity in the years since, to keep studying and teaching this ancient style of meditation, sharing its multiple benefits with people around the world. Much gratitude and thanks to Living Yoga Program, Yogi Sivadas, Jennifer Reis, and Swami Yogaratna Saraswati for their insight and teachings.
