      I enjoyed this lovely practice today too - works equally well first thing out of bed or after running.

      Thanks, friends! When I do Yoga Nidra, I usually do it at bedtime, and lie in bed with the podcast on iPod and earbuds. I posted this just before beginning the practice-- I like to be all set to just drift off to sleep for the night after the practice.

      I love the looks of this! Maybe your 5k time is faster now, and you have to race another?
