Live yoga nidra (guided meditation) sessions you can access by phone, computer or tablet! These are not recorded sessions, they're done in real time. No apps to download or special equipment necessary. If you don't know what yoga nidra is, please scroll down this page and you'll find information.
Everyone from never-ever meditators to experienced practitioners feel the effects of deep meditation when guided remotely. In fact, some reported more profound experiences because they're practicing at home.
Wear whatever you like, meditate wherever you like! No need to travel or park. No need even to be in Chicago to practice with me. We have meditators from all over the country in each session.
Meditation in community (sangha) is one of my joys and this is but one way to do it effectively.

Our bodies and minds can barely keep up with the demands of modern life and its rapid pace. Physical tension leads to tight muscles, decreased immunity, insomnia, high blood pressure and other health conditions prevalent today. Mental tension makes us feel restless, worried, anxious and unable to realize our creative potential. Sleep is not the same thing as relaxation and other activities we think of as "relaxation" are simply diversions of our attention.
The ancient yogis developed yoga nidra ("yogic sleep" in Sanskrit), as a method of achieving deep and complete relaxation while maintaining consciousness. Yoga Nidra is said to be 4 times more healing and restful than sleep itself.
Yoga nidra has made such a deep impact on my life, especially in times of emotional upheaval, that I want to share it with as many people as possible. The more you do it, the more it works. It's so easy. There's no advance study required. Just be there and be present. During a session, all you need to do is wear comfortable clothing, lie down, be at ease and listen as you are guided through systematic relaxation and visualization techniques.
