This practice must bring us to a higher plane of connection...just as with Kate (with whom my practice overlapped by mere minutes) when the bowl sounded it seemed as if barely any time had elapsed and yet I felt deeply restored. I also was thinking this was such a lovely practice for the Solstice today. Kate, when I read your words it was like “whoa” lol. This really is juicy stuff! ✨🎄✨
I too was surprised how time was transformed in this practice. Thank you for this Kristin. It’s late at night and I hoped that I would not fall asleep while doing this but the meditative nadi shodhana was very anchoring and present. I have been averse to yoga nidra in the past because for some reason it made me terribly anxious rather than relaxed, but these practices with you have been calming. And I appreciate your dulcet voice 💕🌺
Dear Kristin, thank you for this wonderful practice - I'm a beginner and was confronted with some physical challenges like noticing one congested side of my nose (not having a cold/allergy) that made alternating breathing impossible and restless itching coming up here and there as I was trying to lie still.... what would be your advise ?
Hi Olga! Have you tried padadrsasana? I have a video on the technique I believe in the Body Poetry series but it's where you criss cross your arms placing your hands under your armpits. There are small clusters of autonomic nerves that will stimulate the nostrils to open and balance their air flow which will accomplish the same energetic balancing as nadi shodhana and might help quiet the nervous system. Please give it a shot and let me know how it goes:)
Wow, what a profound practice! I did you gentle asana practice before this. At the point where we were visualizing the filament of light in our chest, I had this amazing expansion of energy and joy. I almost fell asleep several times, and I think your words really resonated because you helped me to deeply relax. Thank you!
