Yoni Nidra

Total Yoni Nidra for Women’s Health

A selection of nourishing meditative practices to promote cervical wellness, and vaginal, ovarian, and womb health, recorded by Uma Dinsmore-Tuli PhD

Welcome home into the safe house of your own body. This collection of practices invites the healing presence of loving acceptance, respect, and awareness to travel through, and rest within the entire female body. There are many different routes along which the awareness is invited to travel. All the practices intend to become comfortable at home within our bodies and to bring healing and kindness to every part, including the whole of the Yoni (the Sanskrit word for ‘homecoming’, and the whole of the vulva, vagina, clitoris, and cervix). These practices are intended to promote self-acceptance and love that encourages optimal menstrual health, fertility, and positive experience of menopause. They are suitable for women at all stages of life, and also for girls approaching puberty.

This collection includes some more general practices, with gentle guidance around the energy pathways in the female body, and some with more explicitly detailed instructions describing awareness visiting the labia, clitoris, vagina, cervix, and inside womb. Choose whichever practices suit you best for this time in your life, and explore the healing power of welcoming love and awareness into the yoni.

Many of these YONI Nidrā practices work well in combination with the breath and Movement practices described in my book Yoni Shakti.

Note for women without wombs and/or ovaries:

The quality of energy associated in yoga with the places where these organs may be remains the same, whether or not the organs are present. If the organ of the womb or the ovaries has been removed, then the quality of the yonis thana (place of the Yoni Nidra energy) remains present and can be nourished by these practices that bring awareness into the space previously occupied by the organs. Yoni Nidrā is nourishing whether or not you have a womb.
