Description

What if you could reboot your health, tap into your creative self, reclaim your wild nature, lead from your heart--and still feel well rested?

As modern women, we're taught that we can do it all, have it all, and be it all. While this freedom is beautiful, it's also exhausting. Being a "worn-out woman" is now so common that we think feeling tired all the time is normal. According to Karen Brody, feeling this exhausted is not normal--and it's holding us back. In Daring to Rest, Brody comes to the rescue with a 40-day program to help you reclaim rest and access your most powerful, authentic self through yoga nidra, a meditative practice that guides you into one of the deepest states of relaxation imaginable.

It's time to lie down and begin the journey to waking up

Though it comes from the yogic tradition, yoga nidra doesn't look like a typical yoga class--the entire practice is done lying down. As you listen to a guided meditation, you're gently taken into complete inner stillness, effortlessly releasing into a healing state that works on both cellular and subtle body levels.

With Daring to Rest, Brody presents a comprehensive yoga nidra program that unfolds in three phases: rest for physical exhaustion, release for mental and emotional exhaustion, and rise for tuning in to the "life purpose exhaustion" that can come when we're not in our full power. Each phase includes a downloadable yoga nidra guided meditation and supportive practices.

"By directly accessing your subconscious mind, yoga nidra helps shift the long-held patterns that prevent you from stepping fully into your purpose and power," writes Brody. "Now is the time to break the cycle of fatigue and return to your truest self--the woman you are when you're not constantly exhausted."

This is a book about yoga nidra, a meditation practice that helps with relaxation, sleep, rest, and healing.
