New Moon Yoga Nidra is a beautiful way to come into stillness.
Nighttime is a time to turn towards stillness. In this stillness, we are closest to our truest essence. Add to this the powerful New Moon, which is void of light in the night sky. Out of this void and emptiness, all is birthed into Life. This is a great time to plant seeds of intentions at the start of a new lunar cycle.
We begin the session with a ritual to cleanse our space and honour the directions and elements. This practice is seen in many spiritual rituals (yoga and Hinduism, indigenous cultures, paganism, and more). We then move into a space of meditative self-inquiry (related to the New Moon in relation to the stars), revealing our seeds of intentions for the month.
As we rest in a Restorative yoga pose, we are guided into Yoga Nidra. I share practices passed down through my teachers (from the Himalayan Institute). We offer our intentions to the Goddess. Yoga Nidra (yogic sleep) is an ancient Tantric Yoga practice that helps to reduce stress, anxiety, and insomnia. In this session, I will guide you to a place of relaxation, where the thoughts begin to slow down. You’ll move into a deep state of stillness where you are unconditionally supported and perhaps connect to deeper states of consciousness.
