Yoga Nidra for Balance

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.

An Autumn Welcoming

A 14min Yoga nidra with rotation of consciousness followed by a poem on Autumn by Patricia L Cisco.

'Sing to me Autumn'

Sing to me, Autumn, with the rustle of your leaves.
Breathe on me your spicy scents that flow within your breeze.

Dance with me, Autumn, your waltz that bends the boughs of trees.
Now tell me all the secrets you've whispered to the seas.

Sleep with me, Autumn, beneath your starlit skies.
Let your yellow harvest moon shimmer in our eyes.

Disconnect from the thinking mind and drop into the essence of your being

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.

Enjoy! <3

Recharge with the healing energy of the full moon

This 27 minute nidra was recorded during my one of my yoga nidra classes.  

The intention of this nidra is to create a place of rest and invite for a reconnection with the breath and the energy of the full moon. 

We start with a feeling of contentment, inviting gratitude in the heart space, followed by a nourishing rotation of consciousness recharging the body with the healing energy of the full moon. 

*Singing bowls and wind chimes*

Enjoy! 

Rest and Recovery

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.

Spacious Emergence

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.

Still Silent Listening

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.
