Nidra recorded in a women's circle at spring equinox, spring flowers opening on the body in Satyananda based rotation starting on left side, deep trance with hypnotic counting of breath and resting in the moment before the in breath. Opening and ending with drumming.
This is a standout Nidra recording for several reasons. I chose to highlight 3 major tools of Nidra making it very accessible while also asking the deeper questions Nidra can illuminate. It very much shows synthesis and development in my presentation of the Nidra practice. This is Total Yoga Nidra to the core and draws from all of my usual inspirations: Neuro Linguistic Programming, Non-dual Shiva Tantra, Uma Dinsmore-Tuli, Richard Miller, Contact Improvisation, and Mother Earth Herself.
Autumn themed Nidra created for a women's circle, cues are based on the female body. Guides you down through the central channel of the body and lets the wind blow away any clutter of stuckness to leave a bright clear space where stars are lit on the marma points (with some additional locations).
This 28min Yoga Nidra was recorded live on a Women's Yoga Retreat with Uma and Sivani Mata in the evening (after a delicious avocado chocolate cake), March 2018. It is themed on nourishment and rest, celebrating Nidra as an embodiment of the feminine with the sound of JAI MA sung around the body. It includes the poem "And the Great Mother Said" by Linda Reuther.
