Lie down, lean back or listen-on-the go to powerful and deeply personal discussions on how women can feel well-rested and operate more from their full power. Karen Brody is your host and the author of Daring to Rest: Reclaim Your Power with Yoga Nidra Rest Meditation. This podcast is real talk on women’s health, wisdom and empowerment. You’ll also learn a lot about what rest really is and yoga nidra, a transformational sleep-based meditation technique that feels like the most supreme relaxation imaginable.
Is Rest the New Mindfulness?
Daring to Rest founder, Karen Brody, goes on another rest rant answering the question: "Is rest the new mindfulness?"
Menopause as an Initiatory Rite of Passage
In our society, menopause is seen as a problem, and there are no instructions for how to navigate the process. But in truth, menopause is an opportunity to reevaluate who we are and awaken to our true nature. Today, Alexandra Pope joins me to reframe menopause as an extraordinary rite of passage for women.
Does Resting for Productivity Make Sense?
Daring to Rest founder Karen Brody reads her recent rest rant on rest and productivity. "If we are resting to be more productive then we are feeding into the same paradigm that's making us all sick and tired."
Self-Guided Yoga Nidra
Yoga nidra is a powerful healing practice, and many love nidras to navigate challenging situations. But what if we don’t have access to the audio for a guided meditation when we need it most? Today, Jaimee Roncone and Beth Dorman join me to share their experiences with self-guided yoga nidra.
Social Justice, Inclusion, and Yoga Nidra - with Yoli Maya Yeh
Yoli Maya Yeh, an educator and healer working at the intersection of Indigenous Way, Healing Arts & Social Justice, shares with us her thoughts on the sacred destruction happening in our world today, particularly how it relates to racism and White privilege in the yoga world, classroom inclusion, and yoga nidra. She provides a perspective on yoga nidra that you may have never heard before, and is adamant that this practice is the secret sauce to transformation and deep healing.
The Colonization of Sleep and Yoga
Anyone who practices yoga nidra knows it can feel like being in a sanctuary. We a lot about this sanctuary – that it’s a space that’s soft, and even playful. But are you choosing to lie down from a place of freedom, where you’re at the center, or are you, often unknowingly, allowing a system to take your power? In this podcast Uma Dinsmore Tuli and Yoli Maya Yeh call us to reclaim sleep and yoga for planetary healing, justice and freedom.

Thank heavens for this podcast, which helps all of us keep ourselves together in a lovely and soothing way. Yoga Nidra is such a powerful tool and I really love what she is doing with this podcast.
This podcast is a delicious drink for my soul
I’ve been listening to the podcast regularly online and I’m so excited it’s on iTunes now! These soulful conversations are a way for me to take a drink of rest while I can’t do yoga nidra. I listen in my car, while I’m doing things around the house, and with my morning tea and journal. Thanks for providing these deeply soul nourishing and delicious conversations as refuge in the midst of a surface-based, anxiety ridden and overstimulated world.
Love, Korynn xo
