A live recording of a practice that begins and ends with the chanting of the Ayur Mantra (from the Taittiriya-Aranyaka 4.15, chanted by Silvia Grillo), a powerful healing mantra from the Indian tradition. With this Mantra we ask (to the Divine Force) for a long life, health for the body and clarity of mind, both for ourselves and for others, mentioning the different parts of the physical and energetic body. Suitable for everybody (the practice is in Italian).
This sixteen minute yoga nidra was recorded on an October afternoon by a lively stream, high up in the Heavens' Woods in Stroud, in the Cotswold Hills in Gloucestershire. Its intention is re-integration, nourishment and restful meditative awareness, followed by a revitalising re-connection with everyday consciousness. The elemental structure of the recording is drawn from Indian philosophy.
This nineteen minute and 47 second yoga nidra was recorded live in Lesvos on a beautiful May morning. It was specially created to support a connection to loving integrity and trust, and it is an intimate recording, that includes the metaphor of the 'pot in the ocean': fully integrated with what is, inside and out. It is peaceful yet energising. Enjoy! Thank you for listening.
This 28 minute practice is a warm welcome nidra, recorded live in Moscow, with thirty two Russian yoginis present. The beautiful translation of English is provided by Natalia Pylaeva, whose skilful interpreting has been a feature of the Moscow women's yoga courses since 2011. The studio is in the heart of Moscow, above an esoteric bookstore, and there are a few little people settling at the beginning of it, and sime inner city sounds in the soundscape. but the peace that settles amongst the yoginis is palpable and very sweet. Enjoy! And a big Thank You to Natalia for your voice!
I recorded this especially for a client whose baby was breech to support the baby to turn head down. Please see also the handout on my website www.tessayoga.co.uk/pregnancy-resources for asanas to help.
This 18 minute Wild Nidra was recorded by starlight, on my phone by the banks of the Caher river in the Burren in County Clare. It was very dark, close to midnight, and there's some rustling in the reeds at the start. It's worth persevering through the rustle, to hear the Nidra floating on the running water.
This 22 minute practice is a naturally arising experience of 'wild nidra' that occurred at Hawkwood College, in the beautiful Stroud Valleys in the South Cotswolds. It's a sunny February morning, on the last day of a Womb Wisdom retreat led by myself and Alexandra Pope. There are twenty-four women in the room, and a number of birds singing outside.
