The 3 Easy Steps to Deep Relaxation supports good health, develops clarity of mind, and improves concentration and memory.

Simple, calming and restorative, this guided practice breaks the process of relaxation into small steps, so you learn how to relax in any situation. Each step takes you progressively deeper into relaxation, turning off the negative effects of stress, anxiety and over-thinking, and soothing your body and mind.

Use these steps anytime, anywhere to rest deeply, to calm yourself, and to replenish your energy. Over time, you will become a more relaxed and expressive person.

Relaxation techniques are especially valuable for students studying for exams, those who are short on sleep, trying to meet deadlines, and for people recuperating from illness or surgery.
All the techniques can be practiced in a lying position.

This guided relaxation is an excellent gift for those who have never meditated before, but want a simple way to relax and recharge. It requires no prior meditation experience.

Track 1. Talk on Relaxation


Track 4. The Controlled Breath


  • I began practicing Swami Shankardev and Jayne Stevenson’s Ajapa Japa meditations several years ago and it has been a turning point in my life. I still find it the most effective practice for calming, balancing and promoting self-expression.

    When I first did this practice my throat chakra had been quite constricted for many years. I would feel this energetically when the breath moved through this area of my body. The more I practiced however, the lighter and more liberated my throat felt. These changes were reflected in my daily life. My voice became more confident and I was able to express myself much more freely and openly. I wholeheartedly recommend it!

  • Dr Swami Shankardev is an excellent and profound teacher. A humble and thoughtful Yoga Acharya, he addresses his students with a strong desire to share his sacred knowledge in the true spirit of giving. After his recent visit to Jivamukti I began to practice Big Shakti’s meditation CDs. I find them extremely helpful, full of wonderful instruction and deeply soothing.
