This is a standout Nidra recording for several reasons. I chose to highlight 3 major tools of Nidra making it very accessible while also asking the deeper questions Nidra can illuminate. It very much shows synthesis and development in my presentation of the Nidra practice. This is Total Yoga Nidra to the core and draws from all of my usual inspirations: Neuro Linguistic Programming, Non-dual Shiva Tantra, Uma Dinsmore-Tuli, Richard Miller, Contact Improvisation, and Mother Earth Herself.
You are a song. This 29 minute DreamSong Nidra with a channeled/improvised song is awakening the miracle of a living instrument that you are. It is to remember that each of us are made of sound, to welcome the jewel of your voice exactly as it is, to drop into the truth of this very moment. This Nidra doesn't not involve participating in any singing or humming, but is about reminding you of your creative potential, planting seeds of music through your body. Enjoy!
This 33min Yoga Nidra was recorded live at Yoga Nidra and Kirtan evening at the Bhakti Shala in Poland 27 April 2019. It is offered in English by Sivani Mata with Paweł live translating into English, and invites you to be welcome. It closes with a poem from Hafiz – All I Know Is Love weaved with Om Namah Shivaya Kirtan.
Delivered to a small group including a Nidra newbie and a pregnant mother this Nidra draws on almost countless inspirations. The name of the Nidra refers to the multi-sensory evocational portion which is presented as a story about a girl named Sally. The settling has language borrowed from Uma Dinsmore-Tuli, the sensing and evocation draws inspiration from Swami Janakananda, the story is a NLP hypnotic metaphor, and Non-Dual Tantrik philosophy and cosmology informs and inspires the whole practice.
This 30 minute live heart centered Nidra recording begins with a nice NLP influenced settling process and an adapted Richard Miller style body sensing practice. It then moves through Satyananda influenced multi-sensory spot evocations into awareness of breath. This practice includes spacious amounts of silence throughout The externalization process includes a strong rousing and experientially walks through the tantrik model of the “Nested Layers of Awareness” as explained in Tantra Illuminated by Christopher Wallis.
This 28 minute practice is a warm welcome nidra, recorded live in Moscow, with thirty two Russian yoginis present. The beautiful translation of English is provided by Natalia Pylaeva, whose skilful interpreting has been a feature of the Moscow women's yoga courses since 2011. The studio is in the heart of Moscow, above an esoteric bookstore, and there are a few little people settling at the beginning of it, and sime inner city sounds in the soundscape. but the peace that settles amongst the yoginis is palpable and very sweet. Enjoy! And a big Thank You to Natalia for your voice!
