Our Story

At the age of 28, I was barely able to get out of bed, make my own breakfast, or function on my own. I had to move back in with my parents, went into debt with over $400,000 in medical bills, and had an IV catheter (the same one chemo patients use) in my arm for 2.5 years to infuse IV medications and nutrients.  I was disabled from with a late-stage Lyme Disease and traumatic brain injury for 13 years. Of the hundreds of symptoms I managed on a daily basis, one was severe insomnia. Without proper sleep, it was nearly impossible to heal. I started sleeping with an eye mask nightly during this period, which helped me greatly in getting more consistent sleep. When I could not sleep, I used my mask to simply lie down, rest my eyes, and listen to the Yoga Nidra meditation.
In fact, this is where our name Nidra comes from.  Yoga Nidra is a practice that translates from Sanskrit to yogic sleep, incorporating meditation, visualization, and relaxation.  So from a hospital bed in 2014, no longer working as a civil rights lawyer, Nidra was born to address the need for the most comfortable and effective sleep possible.  While living with Lyme disease for years had been the most challenging time of my life, this healing journey uncovered something very important. My deepest desire and the true mission of Nidra: to support others in their journey towards optimal health and well-being. My true calling has been sharing insights I have found on my way back to health, wholeness, and a life of thriving.
