[ ABOUT YOGA NIDRA ]
The Sanskrit word 'yoga' means union or perfect awareness, and 'nidra' means sleep. In other words: Under guided instructions, you enter a state of deep relaxation with awareness, creating a unique and powerful state of consciousness that has beneficial applications. You are in charge of your experience at all times.

[ TRACK DETAILS ]
Track 01: Gentle Relaxation (10:50)
This is a short practice suitable for anyone who would like a quick and gentle introduction to yoga nidra. You may use it when you are anxious or exhausted but short on time, to relax quickly in a stressful situation, to develop habitual relaxation, and to build your practice.
Track 02: Deep Relaxation (24:35)
This is a longer practice that takes you systematically through eight stages to a state of deep relaxation. You may use it regularly when you want the full experience, to clear your mind, to develop habitual relaxation and awareness, and to build your practice.
Track 03: Deep Healing and Energising (31:28)
The longest practice, this takes you systematically through eight stages to a state of deep healing and energising. It visualises the seed syllables of the Sanskrit alphabet at the chakras, the psychic-energetic centres of the body—an authentic tantrik practice called 'matrka nyasa'. You may use it regularly to create deep healing and energising effects, for internal spiritual work, and to build your practice.

Ratings and Reviews
Relaxing but needs some technical help
Great app!! I wish there was a way to rewind/fast forward without needing to restart the app altogether.
Developer Response ,
Hi ViceZball, greetings! Thank you very much for your kind review. Aha, I hear you, but :-) not having a rewind/forward function is intentional. Each track has its own carefully crafted sequence and it is important not to miss any steps, you see. So even if we know some parts or are impatient to get to the core of the practice or are interrupted midway, it is more beneficial to go through the whole thing. Do feel free to write to me for any questions or specific situations you may have. Happy practice! ❧ Best, Kanya ✽ email@example.com ✽ www.alarmelyoga.com/yoganidra (watch this evolving space for resources!)
I find this app is very effective; I have used several times now and each time I can feel my body releasing tension and my mind as well.

Hi Hippie Mammy, thank you very much for your kind review. I'm glad to hear it is working well for you! May it continue to do so. Yes, living in modern times, we have learned to accommodate stress a lot, but not relaxation to a proportionate degree. This can help build that crucial relaxation habit. Do write for any questions. iTunes has just enabled this review response feature! ❧ Best, Kanya ✽ firstname.lastname@example.org ✽ www.alarmelyoga.com/yoganidra (watch this evolving space for resources!)

Hi sierrasmum, that's such a nice thing to hear. Thank you for your kind review. Not being able to get a good night's sleep can be tough and its effects could trickle into the next day and the other parts of your life. Yes, this app helps you relax each time, and at the same time, enables you to build the relaxation habit. Do feel free to write to me for any questions. It's only now that iTunes has enabled this review response feature! ❧ Best, Kanya ✽ email@example.com ✽ www.alarmelyoga.com/yoganidra (watch this evolving space for resources!)
