We have a true passion for well-rested women.
At Bold Tranquility we help women go from worn out to well-rested using the magic of yoga nidra meditation.
All of this is done, lying down, listening to a guided voice.
Yes, it's "nap" time for women. Finally.
Women who use our meditations tell us yoga nidra naps help them:
Remember who they are...and who they can be
Get better sleep
Feel deeply rested
Heal from physical, mental, and spiritual pain
Let go of trauma
Create peaceful intimate relationships
Overcome anxiety and depression
Feel like themselves again
Feel joyful and at peace
Who We Are
Karen is Bold Tranquility's founder, yoga nidra cheerleader, mother of two teenagers, and a critically-acclaimed writer. She helps women visionaries around the world lead from a well-rested place.
Soon after discovering yoga nidra, Karen wrote the play Birth and started a global theater-for-social-change movement, raising awareness and over $1 million to improve maternity care around the world. She also got off of anxiety medication after years of crippling panic attacks, especially when her children were young. This kick started her deep love for yoga nidra. (What woman doesn't want to lie down, do nothing, and feel great again?).
Initially, Karen worked with pregnant moms and then trained birth professionals in her unique BOLD Method for Birth empowerment program, using the principles and practices of yoga nidra as a cornerstone. Seeing how successful this method was at helping women give birth to babies, Karen began to test out her method with women who were "pregnant" with ideas. This lay the foundation for Bold Tranquility, a movement to help women take back rest.
Karen knows only too well how lack of rest leads many women into a state of severe exhaustion, poor health, and mental confusion. She was this woman until she discovered yoga nidra meditation. Now certified in the Amrit Method of yoga nidra and trained in level 1 iRest yoga nidra, Karen has coached thousands of women visionaries using this ancient sleep=based meditation technique.
Karen speaks at women's conferences, writes for national magazines, and has been profiled in magazines.
When Karen's not cheerleading yoga nidra you can find her writing, drinking a green juice, laying in a hammock, practicing yoga nidra in her 'rest cave,' listening to Michael Franti, hiking a mountain, shooting hoops or eating Indian food with her boys and husband.

Alston is ridiculously passionate about creating designs that make a difference. The moment she found out about Bold Tranquility she said YES to helping us design our brand because she knew in her soul that women need rest and being a yoga teacher she had experienced the power of yoga nidra meditation. Most days you'll find her designing in her Studio Red for us or the World Wildlife Federation and other organizations spreading goodness around the world. Outside of work Alston makes costumes out of recycled materials with her two deliciously adorable twin girls Mila and Freya.

Karen works with a small number of women privately using yoga nidra meditation and embodied mentoring to help you find clarity, peace, and ease. If you're not sleeping well or experiencing anxiety, this is a messenger. Private work is a wonderful opportunity to discover what is being asked of you and make great shifts in your life. This journey is for women ready to show up for themselves and create. If you'd like to work privately with her contact us.
There's a Bold Tranquility Meditation for Every Woman.
Our sleep-based meditations help visionary women break the cycle of fatigue, sleep better, and awaken power.
Yoga nidra meditation is life-changing.
Yoga nidra meditation feels like the best nap of your life and at the same time it is a deep inquiry that helps you find stillness.
Yoga = union Nidra = sleep
It is commonly referred to as the Sleep of the Yogi. You are guided from waking state to dreaming and into deep sleep brainwaves, even traveling to a place beyond the mind where you can rest, restore and release habits and patterns that have been holding you back in life. You emerge from yoga nidra meditation clear-focused, less stressed, and well-rested.
While you can practice yoga nidra meditation sitting down, it’s the only form of meditation where you are encouraged to lie down. (YES - squeal!).
Sleep meditation is so
simple to grasp
that even people with
no meditation background
can easily use it and
receive all the benefits.
