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.
Recorded just as the virus was becoming a thing and, little did we know it, one of the last times we could still all lie down together. It was early March and I was bringing all the joy of germination from my sowing bench at Viveka Gardens Retreat Place in Devon.
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 15 minute yoga nidra was shared on the TYN Teacher and Facilitator course. It was created especially for the group to welcome a pause to reflect on our unfolding journey, and to explore a sense of an ending and the sense of a new beginning.
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.
