A wild yoga nidra recorded in a farmer's field in Yilan, Taiwan on Earth Day 2020 with the intention of fostering better ways for us to connect to ourselves, others and Mother Earth in this time of challenge and change.
May Day 2020: Nature is not sticking to pathetic fallacy with a sunny, abundant burgeoning of fertility and health at the time of lockdown. In the orchard at Viveka Gardens trees are covered with blossom, birds call their territory and lay their eggs, bees are buzzing and orange tip butterflies are flirting. But one tree has decided to rest this year: no blossom (well, just a handful to show it can) and a fallow year. Last year it was laden with apples, and no doubt will be again, but this year it chooses to be different. Explore flourishing and fallowing here on the land.
This 25 minute wild yoga nidra was recorded in my garden, just as the birds started singing on a crisp and clear spring morning. You are invited to travel awareness on a journey around the body, placing a plant or seed at each marma point, then honoring the soil and nutritious compost of the past below and unique blossoming flowers above, an expression of ourselves now, before returning to rest in the ground of our being, held by Mother Earth.
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.
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 30 minute live nidra was recorded during one of my yoga classes. It is an invitation to let go of all things that don't serve us any longer, just like the trees let go of their leaves to prepare for winter season. It is also an invitation to tune in with the energy of autumn, taking a walk in a beautiful forest, connecting with the wisdom of the trees and the silence of nature.
This 27 minute nidra was recorded during the third live session of my case study.
It was created for a group of women with burn out with the intention to go to a happy, magical garden of imagination and to fully let go of any negative thoughts, limiting beliefs, anxiety and feelings of stress. Also with the intention to recharge with life force energy (prana) lying in the warm summer sun.
