What if you Rose up rested?

SLEEP & DREAM MORE through daring to rest™


You Only Get One Body. Give it Rest.

Our Mission

We’re here to help you dare to rest. How? Through an ancient yogic sleep tool known as yoga nidra rest meditation. Our Daring to Rest method combines yoga nidra and feminine empowerment into a system that uproots exhaustion. Think of it as a fatigue management system for busy women (and brave men). Our mission includes teaching yoga nidra and our Daring to Rest method to women around the world through our online Daring to Rest Academy.

If you want:

✔️ Better sleep

✔️ Anxiety and stress management

✔️ More “me time”

✔️ Conscious dreaming

…then you’re in the right place.


I wrote A BOOK for you.

Hi, I’m Karen.

I discovered yoga nidra meditation by accident when my children were toddlers and I was a panic attack mess. The moment I laid down for this nidra nap I felt so profoundly relaxed and finally ready to release a family legacy of panic.

Yoga nidra changed my life - and now my mission is to help it change yours. It is my purpose and passion to elevate this beautiful practice not only because it’s so simple, restful, and feels like the best nap of your life, but because deep down it helps us “wake up” in so many areas of our life.

I created the Daring to Rest method and wrote the Daring to Rest book so every woman on the planet can start daring to rest and reclaiming her power. I’m a mom of boys and know men need this transformational sleep too - so of course they’re welcome. But I primarily focus on women’s empowerment because women have a long history of being called too sensitive, sick and weak just because we are women. This has held us back and must end. What if deep rest was the key to taking back our health and more?

Daring to Rest is simply brilliant. I thought I knew a thing or two about health, rest, and yoga. But in this wonderful book, Karen Brody breathes new life into the need for rest.
