Yoga Nidra for Kids of All Ages (feat. Cleveland Wehle)

by Emily Gretz & Steve Wolf

Recently published studies now verify what the ancient yogis have long known: The introduction of yoga methods to the young can endow them with life-long skills for coping with life's challenges. Even small children can learn to use yoga meditation and breath techniques to settle the mind and body. This recording features Emily Gretz, narrating three meditative stories, appropriate for all ages. The Yoga Nidra techniques woven into these stories will heighten your inner awareness while systematically guiding you to the deepest levels of relaxation. While there is something here for all age groups, since publication many have reported that both parents and their younger children enjoy the experience most when they listen together. Also included is a bonus track featuring an updated version of the classic "Sixty One Point" guided relaxation exercise which was arranged and narrated by Steve Wolf.

ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Review by Jennifer Ginn for The Capitol – Hometown Annapolis.com
Co-owner of Crofton Yoga and certified instructor Emily Gretz recently collaborated with fellow instructor Steve Wolf to produce "Yoga Nidra for Kids of All Ages," an audio CD featuring four tracks designed to guide the listener toward relaxation or sleep.

Emily, who is also mother to daughters Lily, 12 and Grace, 10, said she used Steve's previously recorded CDs a few years ago to help her own children when they had difficulty sleeping. Soon after, she and Steve agreed that they should put together a CD designed specifically for children.

"Many kids generate anxiety and have a hard time settling themselves down in the evenings," said Emily. "We are consistently finding that once kids start listening and are called to systematically pay attention to their bodies, their minds can relax and they can go to sleep."

Each meditation on the nearly hour-long CD guides the listener through the relaxation process while they listen to stories. One track invites the listener to relax on the beach, calling the child to feel the sand beneath their elbows and under their heels while taking in the sounds of the shore.

"It's very calming when I am stressed out," said Amanda Oyler, a sixth-grader at Crofton Middle School. Her mom Arlene agreed saying, "It's perfect for nights when she can't fall asleep." Amanda sometimes asks her mom to stay with her for a few minutes while she listens to the CD before bed. "I can't stay long or I will fall asleep too," Arlene added.

Arlene also likes that there are confidence builders included in the recording, beckoning the listener to think about their positive traits and then repeat them silently as affirmations.

Review by Shakta Khalsa E-RYT 500, Yoga Author, Founder of Radiant Child Yoga
Consciously relaxing the body and mind before sleep allows for restful sleep, body-mind rejuvenation, and development of inner awareness. In service to the well-being of children, Emily Gretz offers a calm voice and encouraging heart to guide children into effective relaxation journeys on her album, Yoga Nidra for Kids of All Ages.

Excellent CD for relaxation!
I have a spirited daughter that needs to learn how to relax, and a son who is fearful at night & won't sleep without a CD player on in his room. So, I was very excited to purchase this disc. I tried it out with my children today, and it was great! The voices on the cd are so relaxing, as well as the music. I was feeling run down; in a late afternoon slump. Normally I would turn to caffeine, but recently have given that up. This cd was exactly what I needed. Not only did it calm my children down, give us some nice bonding time together, but also I feel energized now. I truly recommend this to people of all ages!

Beautiful Yoga Nidra!
I love this CD. Expertly and lovingly made, it could be enjoyed by kids and adults alike. Emily Gretz has a beautiful, calming voice and uses positive affirmations to start the practice and throughout. Captivating visuals take you to the ocean, on a balloon trip and into outer space. Background music is creative and interesting without being distracting. The Bonus Track, 61 Points, with Yoga Nidra master Steve Wolf, has become the backdrop to my Sivasana practice and takes me deeply into relaxation in preparation for sitting meditation. Thank you Emily and Steve for this beautiful Yoga Nidra CD!

Grace

This is awesome!
This CD really helps me get to sleep and it helps to make me happy. I have had trouble getting to sleep since school started and now I listen to this CD and I can stop thinking and just relax. If I'm worried or upset about something, I'll listen to it to calm down and be more happy. I love it.

So Relaxing!
I love this CD! It is soft and creates a nice environment. I feel totally relaxed when I play it at bedtime and have a great night sleep because of it. Thank you for adding more calm to my life.

Excellent!
I am ten years old and I found it to be very relaxing, quite original, and it made me feel good about myself! I believe that she needs to make more cd's for kids!
