Ratings and Reviews
This is one of the most beautifully designed & intuitive apps out there & makes me feel I am part of the community & inspired by Rod’s teachings no matter where I am or wherever he is! He is currently posting content from India where he is studying with his teacher & we feel the richness of his experience & are welcome to join with him without having to leave our own home. It truly is a Sanctuary, from stress, from isolation, from the idle mind. It brings peace & sanctity to a crazy world of information overload & all the ‘shoulds’ one might feel & helps you to tap into the truth of ourselves, unlimited potential & love. All that for $9.99👍🏽
Amazing resources suitable for all!
This is truly an incredible app— it offers profound healing practices and tools for beginners interested in learning more about meditation/yoga nidra. I love the categories of the different practices and feeling empowered to select what I feel most inclined to. Yogarupa Rod Stryker is gifted beyond words in his ability to translate ancient practices to people around the world, of all levels. Sanctuary is so helpful for me because I can access these practices from the comfort and convenience of my own home or wherever I am. Eternally grateful for this gift.
Accessibility at its best
This app is the best access I’ve found to the best practices. Easy to use and navigate, the content deepens my practice of yoga nidra and meditation because I know it is rooted in years of study and practice on the part of the teacher, Rod Stryker. Highly recommended to students of yoga and meditation looking to deepen their practice and not be deterred by confusing or bulky content, as I’ve found in other meditation apps. Simple but profound!
