PLEASE NOTE THAT THE AUDIO RECORDINGS OF 10 PRACTICES OF YOGA NIDRA DESCRIBED IN YONI SHAKTI (page 433-4) are now available to download from the resources page of this site www.yonishakti.co/resources
There are three forms of audio material available on this page - Yoga Nidra practices (mostly recorded live in workshops and on retreats), chanted invocations in Sanskrit and some readings from the book, especially the short stories and fairy tales.
is an integral and crucial element of any yoga practice that supports deep healing and transformation. Yoga Nidra is the heart of my own daily practice, and has been for nearly twenty years. So when I think of how yoga can empower us to access the deep inner knowing which is our true nature, then I think of how the practice of Yoga Nidra assists us in coming home to ourselves. A full set of yoga nidra scripts for different stages of a woman's life, including menstruation, postnatal recovery and menopause is included in the third part of Yoni Shakti. The scripts of these practices are available to read in the book, and I have also made professionally recorded and edited audio versions of these scripts.
These audio tracks will eventually be presented in the form of a CD set, but for the time being are being made available in the
Yoni Shakti Resources page
If you have an interest in yoga nidra, I warmly encourage you to visit
for a selection of excellent free downloads of yoga nidra scripts (more are added regularly from wonderful teachers working all over Europe).
SANSKRIT CHANTS AND INVOCATIONS
are an integral part of my own yoga practice, and are always included in the retreats, trainings, classes, workshops and womb yoga ritual events that I share. Some of the chants are from the Upanisads, widely used in yoga classes, and some are more devotional shlokass which offer a connection to the deep feminine through the honouring of various forms of the goddess (Lakshmi, Saraswati, Tara and Kali, for example). I find that chanting and listening to these sounds is conducive to peace and focus. Many people have requested over the years to have recordings of these chants so that they can learn them for their won practice, and so I have recorded them in versions which offer triple repetitions of each mantra to assist in the learning process. As with the Yoga Nidra, some tracks are offered freely here, and others (which involved more complex editing and professional assistance with recording) are for sale in the shop. it is my hope that the positive vibrations of these Sanskrit sounds spread far and wide. Thank you for listening.
READINGS FROM THE BOOK
The fairy stories and other tales that appear throughout the book are heart-felt, rich in images and metaphors. Most were received during the practice of yoga nidra, and some were passed to me by other teachers who are honoured in the book. Some are intended to be listened to whilst doing some of the practices in the book (like Sitaa's story) and others are simply a way to bring the ideas in the book alive in a different way. I hope you enjoy listening to them all.
