Do you struggle to sleep well or wind down?
Would you like to experience the benefits of meditation, but in an effortless way?
Yoga nidra is a serene, fully guided practice that offers a route to meditation, quality sleep and rejuvenation. Moving through all our layers of being, yoga nidra restores, heals and re-awakens our true nature. It can be enjoyed by all, including beginners. Today it is also used in a number of therapeutic contexts, for example as part of the treatment of stress, anxiety, pain and trauma.
Follow the guided practices below to release tension on all levels - physical, mental and emotional. You can practice while lying down or sitting comfortably in a chair.
Like other yoga practices, yoga nidra is progressive and the practices I have created are designed to take you step by step through various levels of experience.
For the greatest benefits, practice once a week or more, either during the day or in the evening. As well as relief from tension, you will enjoy greater ease, contentment and creativity in everyday life.
These studio-recorded practices are based on the highly effective approach of Swami Satyananda Saraswati (Bihar School of Yoga) in which I am certified, with awareness of other methods. The visualisations are unique and inspired by some of the most peaceful, blissful and awe-inspiring places I have visited in the world.
Please click on the images or titles below for an outline of each practice and to download your recordings. I hope they are of benefit to you.
Thanks so very much for sharing the practice of yoga nidra. It's been a really wonderful technique for me -- both to get more sleep throughout the winter, as well as to encourage connection with my many emotional layers without conscious over-ride. VH
I've absolutely loved your yoga nidras. They've been a huge help during a very stressful time. Thank you for contributing significant calm at a good moment. KS
