This 36-min live session features a short equal-length breath exercise leading to a practice within a practice. Based on multiple yoga nidra approaches and validated by firsthand experience, svara yoga nidra employs breathwork, sensory withdrawal techniques, visualization, and sound vibrations to gently usher fellow life-travelers out of the knottiness of daily busyness and into the simplicity of the present moment, while promoting emotional healing and personal growth.
This Nidra is an offering to those who can't get outside and want to connect into grassy places in nature, parks, gardens or fields. It may be of particular use to people in hospital or who are bed bound. It can also be enjoyed by anyone who just wants to feel like they're outside in nature. It's around 15mins long. There are lots of permissions and invitations including to imagine, know or remember a special place outside through your senses. Perhaps listen to it firs to make sure you're happy with the content before you practice.
Recorded just as the virus was becoming a thing and, little did we know it, one of the last times we could still all lie down together. It was early March and I was bringing all the joy of germination from my sowing bench at Viveka Gardens Retreat Place in Devon.
This is an early-spring-time 30 minute private DreamSong nidra with a chanelled in-the-moment song. It is for those who want to welcome all that is, and respond with love... even welcoming the guest of fear into your guest house.
This heart centred grouding nidra was recorded in Hong Kong in February 2020 as a response to the fear anxiety surrounding the corona virus outbreak. An adaptation of Louise Hay's affirmation for transforming anxiety "I am at peace with the journey of life. I am safe" is suggested. The nidra ends with sending love out to Hong Kong, China, the world and oneself. Tibetan singing bowls are played softly in the background and birds are heard singing.
