Yoga Nidra Teacher Training (with another organisaton)

Karen Brody is a mother, activist, speaker and founder of DaringtoRest.com, an online community helping women (and brave men) take back rest. She is the author of the book, DARING TO REST: Reclaim Your Power with Yoga Nidra Rest Meditation.  Karen has written for many publications including Yoga Journal, MindBodyGreen, Best Self Magazine, and hosts the Daring to Rest podcast to help women of the world sleep, dream and awaken.
Her book, DARING TO REST, has been called a “masterpiece,” “simply brilliant,” and a 40-day program that “makes yoga nidra relevant and accessible to 21st-century women, who may need this practice more than any previous generation.”
At DaringtoRest.com, Karen has created an online Academy for women to live and share rest around the world, training women on virtually every continent in yoga nidra “sleep” meditation and her beloved Daring to Rest self sleep discovery program.
A community organizer for a decade, Karen is also the founder of BOLD, and playwright of Birth, a theater-for-social-change movement that has been seen in over seventy-five cities around the world, and raised over one million dollars to improve maternity care.
She is the mother of two teenage boys, one who has had significant learning challenges since the age of three. She met her husband in the Peace Corps in her twenties and resides in Washington, DC, but considers the world home.

Contribute to the Yoga Nidra Network

We have chosen to offer these audio recordings freely. We do this because we know yoga nidra to be a valuable practice which we want to share widely. It does, however take a fair bit of time and effort to upload the recordings and maintain this site so you can use it.

If you feel you have benefitted from what you have heard or learnt from this site then please do consider making a contribution towards the maintenance and upkeep of the site. We’d appreciate that, and it would help to ensure we can continue to offer this services freely.

Thank You, Uma Dinsmore-Tuli and Nirlipta Tuli, Co-Founders, Yoga Nidra Network
