Recommends it for: any yoga teacher and anyone interested in beginning or advanced meditation, learning, subconscious
This book on Yoga Nidra, is highly recommended if you are at all curious to learn more about it. First of all its fascinating, and eminently readable. Second of all its packed with science that documents the efficacy of yoga nidra.

You really get a sense of the author as human being with heart and it also gives you a sense of the full range of ways yoga nidra can be applied to deconstruct egoic attachment in a 'hypnogogic' state, so you can understand why it could be an option to do a lot of this

Great information, good scripts. The scripts are a bit too ethnocentric to be used as is for a class of American students; some rewriting and translating is required. Although there are different lengths of class scripts, it's helpful to find some guinea pigs and time yourself while reading the script. The short script takes about 25 minutes to complete, which doesn't make it "short" in my mind.

I had once lived in a Yoga Ashram on the banks of the river Brahmaputra for 1 month and perfected my Yoga practives under the guidance of an authentic Guru. I never came across a Yoga Nidra lesson in those training sessions.
Yoga Nidra appears to be a combination of Savasana and a self awareness creation program. I tried it while reading and found the technique okay.

A great resource for those interested in delving deeply into the world of yoga nidra. This is a handbook for me now in teaching YN classes. It has historical information the practice, physiological and psychological effects of YN as well as some different practices.

I've read this before, and will read again. This is not a book, it is a textbook and valuable reference.
