Awakened, still and breathing here
We rest upon the shores.
Washed up from dream
upon the sands of this arriving day.

Awakened, still and breathing here
Now every wave of thought 
pulses to tidal rhythms 
of sleep's ocean, turning now.

Glinting on the breakers 
at the shoreline where we rest,
see the fluid, conscious mirror 
of her presence in our rest.

(As sleep retreats. A small morning nidra song.
extract from a selection on Uma's Patreon Page)

Jai Mā!

Each morning I invite myself into a spacious and natural yoga nidrā to help me notice the process of awakening to the day. I invite you too, if this is not a process that is already part of your morning time, to make a little space for this morning nidra song. Sometimes, especially in these challenging times, it may be accompanied by urgent mental lists of tasks to complete (write them down!). Sometimes the curious crumbs of dreams remain to savour or confuse (write those down too!). Whatever is there at this awakening moment, if welcomed with interest and respect, can set the tenor for the day ahead. Try it and see for yourself.

Recently most of my dreams and nidra insights have been hijacked by the presence of the Encyclopaedia of Yoga Nidra which has now acquired over sixty new illustrations, which I am busy integrating within the seven hundred pages of text. This is truly a labour of love that has filled many of my dreams for the past seven years.

I've been sharing some of the sneak previews of the illustrations and the stories with the lovely people in our Open Circles over on Patreon and it's been a delight to engage with those of you who have so much to share about yoga nidrā.  Anyone interested in receiving these updates from the unpublished work in process is welcome to join us.

But whatever arises, in the ragged edges of morning sleep, this hypnopompia is a very precious time - this awakening moment.  Perhaps if you have never experimented with yoga nidra practice at the moment of awakening - now would be the moment to do that. Don't turn on the radio or look at the phone. Simply let the first 'news' of the day come from within your own soul, - it feels very different to awakening with the 'news' on the radio or social media feed. Try awakening to yoga nidrā and see how the day flows for you …

When yoga nidrā is part of our lives we can share it authentically. Learning to integrate yoga nidrā within our own lives to deepen our practice is the core of our Total Yoga Nidra Teacher and Facilitator Training process.  We know that the only authentic way to share this practice directly from the heart is to draw from the wellspring of OUR OWN PRACTICE. To truly nourish and inspire others to encounter the benefits of yoga nidrā facilitators need to be fully established in their own daily practice of yoga nidrā. The year-long course we have grown nurtures your own practice of yoga nidrā, as you develop the skills to share it with others.  

Rooted in our combined sixty years of experience, and developed and refined over more the past eleven years, this course is a unique year-long training, including five private tutorials with Nirlipta over the year and a day of learning together, the intensive opening online retreat also gives you daily small group check-ins with experienced mentors, plus daily practice times in pairs - this is a nourishing and friendly learning sanctuary. 

The Total Yoga Nidra Teacher and Facilitator Training course truly empowers you to make the practice your own with confidence, authenticity and creativity. We are pleased to be offering this training again later this month. If you have been thinking about learning to share yoga nidrā, this is the sign you have been waiting for! 

To save £145 on this training, sign up during our FLASH SALE using code nidraAUG21 before midnight (BST) this Wed 11 August.

And if you have already benefited from the course, remember that we hold monthly Open Circles for all yoga nidrā facilitators and trainees, with the focus of discussion on the ethical issues of sharing yoga nidra8. These circles are co-facilitated by myself, and Nirlipta Tuli.


As the first harvests of berries and fruits begin to appear in the hedgerows around the fields of mown hay, I sense the summer leisurely easing towards its close and reflect that yoga nidrā can also be a harvest time.  Especially if you make a moment to pause in the mornings, see what harvests from your dreams and awakening insights show up for you tomorrow! It's not only a way to make quiet sense out of what arises in these challenging times, it also gives you a time to tune into insights and understandings that can get lost in the race of days.

Enjoy your morning nidrā process!
In the service of Nidra Shakti 
and with great respect and love and warm wishes for your well being
