Ratings and Reviews
This is one of the most beautifully designed & intuitive apps out there & makes me feel I am part of the community & inspired by Rod’s teachings no matter where I am or wherever he is! He is currently posting content from India where he is studying with his teacher & we feel the richness of his experience & are welcome to join with him without having to leave our own home. It truly is a Sanctuary, from stress, from isolation, from the idle mind. It brings peace & sanctity to a crazy world of information overload & all the ‘shoulds’ one might feel & helps you to tap into the truth of ourselves, unlimited potential & love. All that for $9.99👍🏽
Amazing resources suitable for all!
This is truly an incredible app— it offers profound healing practices and tools for beginners interested in learning more about meditation/yoga nidra. I love the categories of the different practices and feeling empowered to select what I feel most inclined to. Yogarupa Rod Stryker is gifted beyond words in his ability to translate ancient practices to people around the world, of all levels. Sanctuary is so helpful for me because I can access these practices from the comfort and convenience of my own home or wherever I am. Eternally grateful for this gift.
Best Meditation App In Existence
Rod Stryker is one of the most profound meditation teacher-life coach-yogi-zen-masters in the country, if not the world. He has compiled a phenomenal selection of meditations, yoga practices, and community or people all in one place. If you are an individual serious about meditation and self-actualization, this is the one and only app you will ever need. 🙏🏽 Thank you Rod and everyone who has made this app and all of your teachings accessible to all. Namaste!
