Yoga Nidra: Feeling Nourished and Energised

19minutes 27 seconds
This nidra uses imagery of a drop of nectar nourishing the body and invites you to see the body glowing with energy, energy moving freely through you with your breath.

Yoga Nidra is a state of awareness between wakefulness and sleep. In the space we can bring relief to the physical body, nervous system and the mind. Nidras should be practiced in a comfortable position with supports if needed around and under the joints. The body should be kept warm throughout, so wear warm blankets and thick socks. Turn the lights off or use an eye bag to help settle the mind and body more easily. It doesn’t matter if you fall asleep during the practice your body and subconscious will still reap the rewards. 

On a practical level nidras can be practiced at any time of day but don’t practice whilst driving or operating any dangerous equipment. Make sure you have time to come out of your nidra state and fully waken the sense before moving on with the rest of your day. 

The more you practice the more quickly you will be able to entire the space that is Yoga Nidra awareness.

We have chosen to offer these audio recordings freely. We do this because we know yoga nidra to be a valuable practice which we want to share widely. It does, however take a fair bit of time and effort to upload the recordings and maintain this site so you can use it.

If you feel you have benefitted from what you have heard or learnt from this site then please do consider making a contribution towards the maintenance and upkeep of the site. We’d appreciate that, and it would help to ensure we can continue to offer this service freely.

Thank you.
