Album Notes
You are about to begin a deceptively simple practice that can remove tension, reveal absolute relaxation, and take you deep within yourself. In less than 30min, you can start benefiting from Yoga Nidra, an authentic yogic technique rooted in tradition and proven by science. No experience necessary. All, including children, are welcome.

The Sanskrit word 'yoga' means union or perfect awareness, and 'nidra' means sleep. 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.

Relaxes deeply

Improves clarity of thought and memory

...and others

You will get better results with regular and consistent practice. It is not, however, intended to replace qualified medical advice and/or treatment.

Use at your discretion if you face severe clinical depression or other challenging mental health conditions. However, it may help relieve mild conditions.
Do not use while driving or operating machinery. You may fall asleep.

This album has three tracks of varying lengths.

01: Gentle Relaxation (10:50)
02: Deep Relaxation (24:35)
03: Deep Healing and Energising (31:28)

Choose any track according to your level of comfort and available time.

All you have to do is lie down comfortably and listen to the simple instructions. You will be guided systematically into a state of deep physical, mental, and emotional relaxation with inner awareness.

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.

For more information including the history of yoga nidra, health conditions that might show improvement with yoga nidra, typical structure of practice, and detailed instructions, see the evolving section on my site www.alarmelyoga.com. This includes a list of 41 publicly available research papers on the effectiveness of yoga nidra.

You and I—we are not so different after all; the modern condition has us all. I find yoga nidra particularly useful in this context: simple in practice, yet radical in results. At the same time, it opens doors to inner exploration and deep spiritual work for those who wish to go further.

I would love to hear from you about your experiences with yoga nidra and the album. Do write to me with questions or comments at kanya.kanchana@gmail.com. Thank you for your support. Happy yoga nidra!
