About this app

Sanctuary – an oasis for your body, mind and soul.

Enter Sanctuary to experience the life-changing practices of meditation and yoga nidra – the ultimate in deep relaxation – also called “Enlightened Sleep.” Rod Stryker, one of the world’s leading yoga and meditation teachers, is your guide, helping you achieve greater peace, wellbeing, freedom and ultimate fulfilment.

Select the practice you desire and then just listen as Rod leads to discover the potential of these timeless techniques. Sanctuary makes it possible for you to positively impact your physical and mental health, sleep, the way you think and feel, how you see and interact with the world and more.

A host of features, including a diverse and ever-expanding library of short and long practices, Rod’s livestream events and community pages, means that you will be able to access the benefits of its time-tested practices to get the most out of your life - anytime and anywhere.

The app makes it simple to start or deepen a meditation or Enlightened Sleep practice. Choose from four categories: Peace, Heal, Empower and Spirit. There you will discover a treasure of individual sessions of varying lengths, levels and outcomes. Then let Rod’s expert, compassionate, step-by-step guidance lead you to the rest, healing, inspiration and joy you deserve.

A modern master of these practices, who has taught for forty years, Rod’s welcoming voice and style of teaching means that every practice is as accessible as it is effective. Discover why both modern science and ancient wisdom agree that meditation and Enlightened Sleep are essential to having more of the life you want, even in a stressful world.

The meditations on this app are the best I've found anywhere. The contents is truly excellent. However, the account portion of the app is cumbersome and difficult at best. And this is mostly meditation and yoga nidra, not much in the way of asana, mostly just a portal to advertise classes. Needs improvement!

I think this is great idea. Right now I have to start with the free version of the app. I really like Rod's teaching style. Yoga Nidra is what I need. As a high school teacher I am faced with many challenges each day. Thank you again for creating this program and app.

I cant tell if I like the app or not because I cant seem to access it. Whether leveraging wi-fit services or my data, it repeatedly tells me i have no internat connection... right after installing the app AND watching the trailer. :(
