A yoga nidra practice inviting you to connect to your heart's desire for 2021 and set an intention to strengthen something in yourself or nurture a more accepting and relaxed attitude to a part of yourself or your life. This is a live recording of a nidra recorded for a couple on the evening of January 6th in Hong Kong. The nidra ends with the poem "Clearing" by Martha Postlewaite.
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.
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.
Recorded mid-September 2017, as the swallows have just left, storms have produced heavy showers then rainbows, and the log burner has been lit for the first time. Expect a visit to the fruitful Devon hedgerows and a tuning to the new mood of autumn. Recorded at Viveka Gardens at a Friday Night Nidra session. 37 minutes including settling and externalisation. Om Shanti.
Reconnecting and calming, this 20 minute yoga nidra begins with a home-coming song from Lalleshwari, and settles with an awareness of four seasons of breath in the heartspace. Recorded live in Hawkwood College for the wonderful women on Alexandra's Popes' women's leadership apprenticeship. Restful, restorative and nourishing.
This 14 minute nidra was recorded at Imbolc, on the eve of Saint Brigid's day, live in a beautiful yoga studio in a converted cowshed at Pure Camping (home of the Irish Santosa yoga camp) on the Loop Head Peninisula in West Clare, in the West of Ireland.
