Yoga Nidra translates as yoga sleep. It is a state of restful awareness into which you are guided while resting comfortably. Within that state, guided visualizations help support the body to rest and recover, while the mind is settled and ordered, and the heart can open.
I trained in yoga nidra with Uma and Nirlipta Dinsmore-Tuli, among the foremost specialists on this subject in the UK. My experience and knowledge of yoga nidra is combined with skills acquired in years of training with accomplished teachers from different disciplines: Reiki with Chris Deefholts and Taggart King; natural druidry with Emma Restall Orr; Celtic shamanism with Tira Brandon-Evans.
My guides and teachers, inner and outer, are still showing me how to bring the intuitive and rational, earthy and airy, more skillfully together. My aim is to take you to a space of creative magic, where you can access a fuller potential, listen to your own inner wisdom, and ultimately return refreshed and refocused.
The nicest place to experience yoga nidra is in your own home, so I record yoga nidra sessions for general use and also for specific clients. You can stream or download free yoga nidras, or buy a complete collection to download. Payment is via Paypal. If you can afford to pay the Supporter price, this lets me offer the Concession price to others. Any problems downloading or buying, just email me.
