Effortless meditation to de-stress & deeply rest

What is Yoga Nidra?

Stressed much? Who isn't in "these unprecedented times"!?

Our bodies and minds are overloaded and we can feel adrift in the sea of unknowns. We need to anchor within. We need to balance the build-up of tension.

Yoga Nidra is a sleep-based (yep, done snuggled up & lying down) ancient meditation technique that helps to loosen the grip on life, effortlessly. Anyone can do it.

You know that tiny sliver of time just before you drift off to sleep, when you finally relax and experience distance from your incessant merry-go-round of thoughts? In Yoga Nidra, you are guided to hover in this brain state... to rest in your own being. Not only is this process deeply stilling, it is the gateway to a place from where you can make changes in your life with the power of intention.

It is said that a session of Yoga Nidra is as restorative as 3 hours of sleep. An ongoing practice can reduce the symptoms of stress, insomnia & sleep disorders, PTSD & trauma, habits & addictions, and depression & anxiety.

About Carly

Hi there! My mission is to empower fellow over-doers to balance the busyness with inner stillness through the transformative practice of Yoga Nidra.

When I discovered Yoga and Yoga Nidra in 2006 as an overwhelmed school teacher, everything shifted. For the first time, I touched a space of calm that settled my scattered ferret-like energy. With steady practice, the ability to access this focus and stillness began to seep into “regular” life, even when craziness was swirling around me. I have two small kids now; chaos is a given!

Driven to share these timeless tools for the art of conscious living, I became a Yoga Instructor and a Yoga Nidra Guide for both adults and kids. As a forever-student, it is my passion to communicate these teachings with levity and warmth in a dynamic but un-fussy approach with anyone who wants to live a more intentional, connected life.
