A 28 minute yoga nidra to support you on your journey as you drift off to sleep or to help you rest deeply if you find yourself awake during the night or early morning. Koshi chimes are played as you settle into the practice and the sansula accompanies a starry night rotation. You are then guided through a quiet practice of triangle breathing. This practice is designed as a sleep practice and therefore does not awaken and ground you at the end, but invites you to drift off to sleep when you are ready you.
This is a short, 19-minute Yoga Nidra, to encourage you to relax into this moment. Nothing else matters. Nothing to do and nowhere to go. Simply allowing yourself to move deeper into stillness.
The sequence is accessible to all, especially if new to Yoga Nidra, as there is no descriptive visualization on this particular track, just the comfort of following the body scan and awareness of your life force, or prana.
It’s also useful for when there isn't time for a longer Yoga Nidra meditation, and can be used as a refreshing power nap.
Yoga Nidra is a guided meditation, practiced in pure comfort while laying down in order to eliminate distractions and float with ease through the door of illumination where we experience our truest essence, the creation point where everything is known and everything is possible.
While Yoga Nidra has been used for millenia to awaken to our True Nature, it has also been consistently scientifically proven to positively effect conditions such as stress, insomnia, depression, anxiety, PTSD, general well-being and so much more.
I recorded this Yoga Nidra with my regular Yoga Nidra and Meditation group by the sea. It was our first meeting of the new year and this practice focuses on setting intentions for 2020. In it we imagine planting seeds in the fertile landscape of our bodies. As well as our main intention (Sankalpa) we can imagine the other seeds as things that might support us in making any positive changes in our life.
