This is a short, 19-minute Yoga Nidra, to encourage you to relax into this moment. Nothing else matters. Nothing to do and nowhere to go. Simply allowing yourself to move deeper into stillness.
The sequence is accessible to all, especially if new to Yoga Nidra, as there is no descriptive visualization on this particular track, just the comfort of following the body scan and awareness of your life force, or prana.
It’s also useful for when there isn't time for a longer Yoga Nidra meditation, and can be used as a refreshing power nap.
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.
This nidra was recorded live at a New Year workshop with the intention of connecting to our heartfelt desire and intention, Sankalpa. Kate guides you on a nourishing journey back to your quality of being that is already whole and complete.
This practice was recorded live at the time of the autumn equinox at our monthly yoga nidra and meditation group in Shilbottle, North Northumberland. The recording has a bit of white noise but I'm hoping once you get going you will find it might actually be slightly soothing (little babies quite enjoy this fuzzy crackling sound)... All you need is a comfy, safe space to lie down at home, and 30 minutes to yourself. After a period of settling and rotation of awareness, the practice works with by alternating awareness of breath in the left and right sides of the body.
