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.
This live recording of this 28 minute 29 second nidra is the second nidra I created for a circle of women with burn out symptoms.
This nidra is an invitation to let go of the thinking mind, to go beyond the thinking mind and connect to the heart energy. And to even go in a little deeper and drop into the essence of your being, to come home to yourself.
This yoga nidra was created for the exhibition Circuit Training - a Retrospective in Becoming. Konsthall C 15 Years 2004-2019 in Stockholm (http://www.konsthallc.se) under the theme of Rest and Recovery. Konsthall C chose this theme due to a series of burnouts among art workers in Sweden and the nidra is created with that context in mind intending to provide rest and recovery.
This 23 minute yoga nidra was shared with a circle of women at the start of the summer holidays, with the intention to find a space for rest and rejuvenation. This is a simple, quiet nidra, taking a permissive and trauma-informed approached, and is accompanied by the gentle tones of the sansula.
A 15-minute yoga Nidra to release all the tensions so that you can sleep better. ideal to do in the evening but also can be done whenever you need to take a break for yourself or need to let go of tensions and worries.
This 36 minute recording includes a ~31 minute heart centered practice followed by an original poem and comes from the end of my favorite month of the year - May. As usual the practice draws from multiple lineages and inspirations. Notably I borrow some language from Uma Dinsmore-Tuli and the rotation has elements derived from the Vijñāna-bhairava-tantra exploring the body as space.
This 32 minute Nidra practice explores stillness and silence and is inspired by my time as a middle school substitute teacher. It was recorded by Yogi Jeffrey Balinsky at the HPRC Connection on 01/24/2019.
An invitation to consider the intense vitality and transformation hidden away in moments of apparent stillness - the body at rest, a tree in winter, the pause at the end of the exhale, the darkness just before the dawn.
