Hello all, this is a yoga nidra I created in response to the news that a dear student of mine had suffered the loss of a friend. It's Stress Awareness Week this week, and many of us are coping with grief and loss - whether that's the loss of a loved one, the loss of environmental stability, the loss of life as we knew it to be before the pandemic and all the other challenges, great and small, that life brings.
This yoga nidra is a compassion practice, focused on healing (making whole) and offering the self nurture, time and comfort. Grief can be a hard state to navigate, and one which noone would choose, however there is a tenderness around grief as it is an expression of deep caring. In this practice we transform that potential to care into a compassionate, healing energy directed towards the self.
This is a practice which may help to come to terms with feelings of grief, loss or overwhelm. If it feels overwhelming in itself, it's not the right practice for you. It is not meant to take the place of medication or counselling. It is intended as a companion to any medication you may be taking.
