Yoga Nidra for Light

Who's excited about the coming spring equinox? After a long, harsh winter that seems to keep returning, I am getting anxious for some sun, some heat and some time outside without a bunch of ridiculous layers! This week's classes focused on the light. Not so much the light outside that we will start to get more of starting on Monday, but the light within that is always shining even when the darkness descends outside us. This is the centre of Manipura, as it is known in Sanskrit, or the solar plexus chakra. This energy centre is our inner power, our personal drive and our motivation. It is a very active and dynamic centre and is represented by the element of fire. The yoga nidra this week focuses on helping us gain access to and recognize this spark of light that is within all of us.

This particular practice was recorded during gentle yoga nidra class on Tuesday night.  So, if you were there, you have the chance to experience it again.  If you were there and you fell asleep (which is what I tend to often do), you have the chance to try again!  It also contains part of the glow meditation I did during the 108 sun salutations event on Wednesday.  Because it was done during a class, you have the added bonus of the energy that was created with a group of people present, but you also have the distractions that can sometimes come with that group.  I'll leave out the details and give you the chance to experience it for yourself.

Enjoy and shine bright my friends! ❤️
