yoga nidra practice —- community of cells

Here’s a new yoga nidra practice. This one is a bit different from the usual practices but I’m hoping it’ll still works for you.

The practice runs just under 45 minutes. I recorded this at a higher quality than usual so you might want to stream directly from the speakers of your computer as downloading it might be time consuming.

As usual, if you enjoy the practice or have comments, I’d love to hear from you.

our first body sensing practice

The following is a bit of a departure from our usual yoga nidra podcasts but you could easily think of it as moving yoga nidra. The movement is very gentle, and in fact, is so slow that someone watching might not even be aware that it is a movement practice. Though I teach this practice to my local yoga nidra students I’ve never recorded or distributed a practice. Since this is the first time we’ve put one of these out it would be great to get your feedback. The practice, like many of the yoga nidra practices, runs about 30 minutes so to make it downloadable in a reasonable time the audio quality is pretty bad. If there is enough interest in it I would be open to making practices available on cd.

Here it is… enjoy,

october 1, yoga nidra practice

It really starts to feel like fall when October hits. Guess it motivated me, along with some emails form listeners out there. It *really* does help to keep these practices coming when I hear from you! Send me a note and tell me why you listen to these things!

Just a note that this one is *long* and I recorded it at a slightly higher bit rate than the last couple so your best best is to stream it directly from this page at www.contemplatethis.org.
If you’ve gotten this practice from itunes or you’d like to download it for use on a portable player than you might want to start the download and go do something else. It took me about 20 minutes to upload it!

Here ya go….

Live yoga nidra practice – read Note before listening!

This Yoga Nidra practice was recorded live during a class at breathe books in Baltimore on May 25, 2008. This is a straight practice with no instructions on setup or description of what yoga nidra is but you can get that from earlier practices if you like. Since this was live there are students coughing, birds singing, etc… let this be your practice!

NOTE – before this practice began I asked the students to consider an emotion they would like to work with as well as its opposite so you might want to do the same so you are not confused when we get to that part (about 25 minutes in).

If you’re reading this on the contemplate this website or a feed reader and prefer to get to the practice via iTunes, search for yoga nidra, contemplate this, or sue borchardt in your iTunes search field.

This practice is led by Sue Borchardt and runs 35 minutes. If you’re not sure what yoga nidra is read this. At a minimum it helps to know this is a guided meditation best listened to while lying *very* comfortably on your back, preferably, not in a bed. You can make yourself comfortable on the floor by folding a blanket or two so they make an approximately 2×3 foot rectangle for under your torso. A pillow or folded blanket under your neck and under the knees also helps quite a bit.
enjoy!
