Yoga Nidrā – Four Streams (Released 9/10/19)
“Long overdue” is an understatement, but nine years after creating my first professional yoga nidrā recording on CD, I completed another one for Insight Timer. This one is a fusion of practices inspired by my training in the four most prominent lineages of yoga nidrā (Bihar/Swami Satyananda, Integrative Amrit Method/Amrit Desai, iRest/Richard Miller, Himalayan/Swami Rama). I wanted to create a session where I could highlight some of the tools and language from each approach that reflect their potency and uniqueness, interwoven together into one, seamless experience. My intention is not to dilute or compromise any of the methods, but to honor each lineage through presenting an opportunity for practitioners to experience their beauty and efficacy in a “collaborative” and unified form.
To respect and emphasize the ultimate aim of Yoga Nidrā, designed to bring us into deep, inner silence, this recording has no accompanying music. My intention is for the techniques and container of the practice to stand on their own and to be experienced in their pure form. Though each of the four methods has distinct points of emphasis, this recording is meant to present the intersection where these four streams of wisdom meet, in the very heart of Yoga Nidrā itself.
