Publisher's Summary

Develop a powerful practice of deep relaxation and transformative self-inquiry with this essential guide to Yoga Nidra, including audio meditations.

Yoga Nidra is a practice devoted to allowing your body and mind to rest while your consciousness remains awake and aware, creating the opportunity for you to tap into a deeper understanding of yourself and your true nature. At its heart, Yoga Nidra is about waking up to the fullness of your life. In Radiant Rest, Tracee Stanley draws on over 20 years of experience as a Yoga Nidra teacher and practitioner to introduce the history of Yoga Nidra, mind and body relaxation, and the surprising power of rest in our daily lives.

This accessible guide shares six essential practices arranged around the koshas, the five subtle layers of the body: the physical, energetic, mental, intuitive, and bliss bodies. It also offers shorter, accessible practices for people pressed for time. Each practice is explained through step-by-step instructions and ends with self-inquiry prompts. A set of guided audio meditations provide further instruction. Feel a greater sense of stability, peace, and clarity in all aspects of your life as you deepen your Yoga Nidra practice and discover its true power.

Too advanced for me, alas

This book seems targeted for instructors and advanced yoga practitioners, despite including householder practices. Harder to follow for a curious bystander who listens to books to fall asleep. Also for an audio book, it seems like a missed opportunity to put the guided audio practices themselves on an external web page. I would have explored an audio appendix if it were included here. The book is good for what it is. Even I found some ideas to take away with me. It was just not my cup of chamomile tea. Maybe I will grow into it.

Modern, informative, blissful

I am so grateful to Tracee her teaching in this book had me fallen in love with Nidra. True beauty.

This book is read by the author herself, filled all many gems - her pacing , authenticity, wisdom radiates through the audio.

It has helped me through very difficult time in the pandemic and endless lockdown. Also it has held beautiful space for me to process our judgemental thought, biases, many forms of traumas.

Highly recommended to anyone who are looking for a healing space to explore inner dimension.

Motivation to Learn

This book is great for those interested in learning more and sharing knowledge of yoga. The does a great job introducing a branch of yoga I have never heard about. It has inspired me to add it as a component of my yoga classes. The format of the book is great for yoga teachers, and seekers. It give great references to other books and provides an audio verse of the classes talk through in the book. I can’t wait to try it with the audio version online.

Life changing

This book is an impeccable presentation of the deep and ancient yogic practice of Yoga Nidra. It is both revelatory and approachable and offers much immediately applicable wisdom. The author’s voice is also transporting so it feels like a transmission of knowledge rather than a mere reading. Highly recommended!!
