READY. SET. REST.

Yoga Nidra harnesses the benefits of meditation in an easy to use, effective format that’ll leave you feeling rested.

This page is dedicated to creating Marty’s first Yoga Nidra audio recording. Read on to find out how to pre-order your copy and see this project to completion.

 

 
 

Welcome Friend!

Yoga Nidra is your ticket to relaxation. I’ve personally stuck with this practice for over 15 years because it’s simple and effective. All I have to do is lie down and listen, and the benefits begin.

I’ve received countless requests for a recording of my live Yoga Nidra events, so students can continue the practice at home. This project is the response to that request. I’ve written the script and am ready to product the recording, all that’s needed is adequate funding to produce a high quality recording that you can enjoy for years to come.

So I’m asking you, my long-time yoga community, to pre-order your copy of the Yoga Nidra project to get this project off the ground and into your hands as soon as possible. Together, we can complete this project and continue our practice together anywhere, anytime.

I’m so excited to see what we create together! On this page you’ll find the project tracker, easy options for contribution, and more information on Yoga Nidra practice including an audio sample below.

Thank you in advance!

—Marty

P.S. I’ve chosen to create this project independent of the popular crowdfunding platforms like Kickstarter, because while these are great platforms, they consume precious project funds. I want to make the most of your generous contribution, and this way we can skip the platform fees and put the funds right where they’re most needed.

Why Yoga Nidra?

When Marty turned to Yoga Nidra over 15 years ago, she was suffering from high levels of stress and had developed insomnia. Much to her surprise, she felt better instantly with Yoga Nidra. Her stress levels quickly began to lower and soon she was sleeping through the night again. This practice had such a profound impact on her life that she became a certified Yoga Nidra teacher to share the practice with others.

Stress is the sum of one’s responses to external stimulus. While stress isn’t something you can see with your physical eyes, it can wreak havoc on your body, mind and emotions, earning it the ranking of #1 contributor to disease.

We tend to distract ourselves from stress rather than release it, by turning to the TV, food, or anything else that helps us forget our stress for a while. But these outlets only serve as a temporary diversion from our stress, they don’t do anything to help release tension or heal the root causes of stress.

Yoga Nidra is different. It’s a restorative meditation practice that encourages the body and mind release the effects of stress. Instead of distracting you temporarily from stress, it goes to work at the level of the stress response, helping the nervous system unwind and restore.

And best of all, it’s simple and effective. All you need to do is lay down and listen. If laying down isn’t an option, you can enjoy the benefits of Yoga Nidra in whatever position makes you most comfortable.
