Are you Experienced?, March 4, 2001
Reviewer: james kapches from Toronto, Ontario, Canada
This audio CD is one of the best relaxation tapes that I have ever used! There are many many many imitations of Swami Janakananda Saraswati's Yoga Nidra, but none are able to match the original. The CD is a modern version of an ancient Vedic Yoga pratice. The pratice of Guided deep relaxation. The words Yoga and Nidra mean union and Sleep. These two words best describe yoga nidra, which is a psychic sleep. I recomed this CD to everyone intrested in Dreams, Lucid Dreams and Astral Projection, as it inhances all of these aributes. Infact, it is such a trememdous relaxation, that it slows down your body enough to let you watch your mind.

A unique experience everyone should try!, July 21, 2002
Reviewer: Nicola Birch from Sweden
My Yoga Nidra CD was actually a gift - a well-meaning friend thought I was getting a bit "frayed at the edges" and needed to relax.

I was slightly sceptical in the beginning. I tend to hold a scientific view of the universe, and suspected this might turn out to be "up in the clouds".

My first thought after coming out of the relaxation was "gosh!" I felt as if I'd rested for hours. Somewhere along the relaxation, my mind had let go of the tense attitude I was in the grip of. After the relaxation I lay there looking at the things around me for quite a while, almost like a child.

I noticed the effect of this first trial of Yoga Nidra for hours afterwards. It's hard to describe really, I was definitely more relaxed than usual, but not at all sluggish or slow, quite the opposite.

Of course, after this I started using the relaxation regularly and I am still doing so. It continually amazes me that such seemingly simple instructions can have such a strong effect. The quality of my sleep has improved greatly since I started using the CD. I used to wake up several times each night but now find that I can sleep the whole night through, which of course makes a
great difference to my day.

There are two relaxations on the CD, one short version (20 minutes), and one long (45 minutes). The voice giving instructions is interwoven with music and various sounds from nature. Before listening to it I would have thought that this was confusing, or that it would somehow have a hypnotic effect, but I find that the other sound effects enhance the instructions in a very balanced and harmonious way.

I strongly recommend anyone who wants to relax and "recharge their batteries" to try this CD. It's made a definite difference for me in my daily life. -- This text refers to the Audio Cassette edition.

Learning to relax with yoga nidra, July 10, 2000
Reviewer: Nenad Ivanovic from Burnaby, BC Canada
If you recognize stress as an inherent part of modern life, and see stress as a cause for many psychosomatic illnesses, you'll be interested in Yoga Nidra by Swami Satyananda.

Satyananda's premise is simple and elegant. Our minds are mainly turned outward, concentrated on the external events. When turned inward, our minds are mainly obsessed with unresolved events from the past or worries related to the present or future. These become additional sources of stress. We try to relax by engaging in activities such as reading the newspaper or watching television, but we are relaxing in a wrong way. These activities keep our senses active, which do not promote true relaxation.

Yoga nidra is a natural technique for real relaxation, with senses turned off and a peacefully focused mind. This yoga technique does not make our mind lazy and sleepy. Instead, it brings us to a state of complete physical, emotional and mental relaxation and increased inner awareness. Satyananda has brought us this practice through a practical book with detailed descriptions of yoga nidra techniques. Yoga nidra is a meditative technique of aware sleeping; "nidra" means "sleep" in Sanskrit. This meditative technique brings us to a state of conscience between sleep and awakened awareness - in other words, a sleep state without loss of awareness. In such a state, we experience a deep relaxation and latent contents of our subconscious are being awaked. This has a strong healing effect on us and removes obstacles we may find hindering our self-development.

Reading this book will definitely expand your views, but it's the diligent practice of yoga nidra that will yield positive changes. Accept Swami Satyananda's invitation to a spiritual pilgrimage to a state of relaxation and see what happens.

The Art of Relaxation at its Best, December 3, 2001
Reviewer: saramayul from Monroe, LA USA
This book is a treasure trove of information; very readable presentation with great insight on medical and yogic issues related to this ancient practice. Yoga Nidra is more than relaxation, it is a way to access the deepest levels of the Self through the progressive suspension of distractions. It leads the individual through progressive relaxation, visualization, affirmation, and insight. Its practice synchronices the hemispheres of the brain by utilizing sound as the means of guidance. The Monroe Institute uses the same principles in its Gateway Program which uses "Hemisync" to lead the individual through progressive relaxation, affirmation, visualization by means of specific sound frequencies. If you think you may be interested in consciousness exploration give this book a try. No dangerous worst you fall asleep. This book offers an excellent practice that yields results! Great buy at any price.
