Thank you for visiting the YONI SHAKTI resources page. I have here made available a range of written, visual and audio material to support understanding and practical encounter with the yogic and tantric practices shared in my book Yoni Shakti. In particular I am keen to empower readers who resonate with the messages at the heart of the book to spread those messages through, for example, sharing the Introduction and the Womb Yoga Manifesto with those friends, studio-owners and yoga teachers in their lives who may need to receive these messages. The practice guides are extracts from the book describing some key techniques of Womb Yoga. The complete set of ten Yoga Nidra practices to support the stages of our lives as women are also available to download from this page.
I hope that this material is of value to you on your yoga journey. In order for the materials to be widely accessible, I have, (with the exception of the book herself), chosen not to charge for any item. Instead, I have simply offered them for free download. If you value the materials, then I invite for your to contribute whatever feels appropriate through the contribute page. These contributions reflect the value you place on the material, so please pay whatever you feel you want to. Monies received through this site are used to support the maintenance and updating of the site, and to pay for the additional design work and sound engineering involved in rendering the material beauteous, pleasing and useful.
Consider this a matter of trust and honour:
I trust that if you value this work you will honour it with an appropriate donation.
HARI OM TAT SAT
In order to access these files you first need to "add them to your cart" as you would with most online shops, and in the process use your email address and create password of your choosing. During the checkout process you will be given an opportunity to add your contribution. Finally you will simply need to come back to this page (and login on the right hand side if neccesary) and the download links will become active (you can click on them).
To download for offline use
To save them to your computer you either need to hold down ctrl and click on them on a mac, or right click on them on a pc to bring up a menu, and select "Save Link As..." or similar and choose where on your computer to save them. Alternatively just click them and then go to file->save page as/save as. Clicking and holding on a tablet can provide options to save the file, but not always, if you have difficulty that way we suggest you use a computer.
Audio file special instrucitons
The yoga nidra tracks are mp3 audio files. To use them, on my computer I would save it to the desktop, and then drag it to itunes, and then sync it to my ipod for easy offline listening, but you may have a different method that you prefer. Please be aware that we have had some reports of the yoga nidra audio files not playing to the end when listening without first downloading to your computer, which in the middle of a meditation can be a bit diffcult for the meditator. They can work online depending on your, and our interntet connection at the time. For this reason, we always recommend downloading to your computer first and listening offline.
