Overview

Note: This book includes a spoken-word audio CD, which is not available with the digital ebook edition.

One of the most enjoyable parts of a yoga class comes when we rest in savasana-the "corpse" pose-and realize deep serenity, a sense of effortless joy, and a glimpse into our true nature as unqualified presence. How is this so? Master teacher Richard Miller explains that this experience is a manifestation of yoga nidra, the meditative state of mind-body union at the heart of all yoga practice.

Yoga Nidra is an ancient tantric yoga path that leads to inner freedom. Through accessible language appropriate for any level of practice, Miller takes us step-by-step through the traditional techniques of relaxation and meditation to help us move toward the realization of "unqualified presence"-the ultimate aim of yoga-a goal unreachable through posture practice alone. Through his expert guidance, students will experience:

  • Deep relaxation for relief from day-to-day stress
  • The development of "one-pointedness"-a key to spiritual awakening
  • Healing from painful emotions, such as fear, grief, and anger
  • More effective and energizing sleep, and much more

Suitable for both beginners and advanced practitioners-but new to most Westerners-Yoga Nidra provides an unmatched way to experience the culmination of the art of yoga, and the deeper physical, emotional, and spiritual rewards that are its promise.
