We know that meditation can alleviate stress and release endorphins. It's like exercise in many ways. You reap the benefits if you do it consistently. These recordings give you a boost and support you in developing a regular meditation practice.
Savasana - Guided Meditation
Savasana or corpse pose. Spoken by Eve Grzybowski.If you enjoy this meditation you might like my book. It's called Teach Yourself Yoga by Eve Grzybowski. I wrote it in 1997 and it was out of print for 15 years. It was recently republished and is available as a paperback or an eBook wherever books are sold (if it's not in stock, just ask.)
Loving Kindness Meditation
Loving kindness meditation when practised regularly can help us open our hearts to experience life in its entirety. We expand our heart space to be able to include the whole spectrum of emotions and to accept our humanity and that of others. My practice of loving kindness meditation was evoked when my husband and I traveled around Australia in 2016. We had inclement weather at times and very little space in our caravan, so I couldn't do my more active yoga practice. I found that the practice provided a spiritual and mental refuge for me. And still does. The wildflower images on this video were taken in the spring of 2016, mainly in the Northern Territory and South Australia. I'm deeply grateful to Jon Kabat-Zinn for his Heartscape meditation which has inspired my practice and this video.If you would like to make a donation to my continuing to create videos and recordings, please visit https://eveyoga/donation/.
Savasana with the Breath
We all know that breathing is integral to doing yoga. But for less experienced yoga practitioners, doing pranayama, or controlled yogic breathing exercises, may feel daunting. This 15 minute relaxation with breathing sets you up for greater awareness and control of your breath in a very gentle way. You will feel nourished and renewed at the completion of the practice.If you would like to make a donation to my continuing to create videos and recordings, please visit https://eveyoga/donation/.
For Your Bones: A Yoga Visualisation for the Health of Your Bones
This visualisation gives you time to scan your body and connect with the parts that give you stability and support, your bones. By taking time and sensing into these individual parts of our bony skeleton, we can appreciate them and contribute to their health. When there are conditions of the bones, for example, arthritis or osteoporosis, yoga tools can be hugely beneficial and not invasive. Practising Yoga Nidra, Loving Kindness Meditation and a visualisation, such as this one, can bring clarity and calm when the mind is disturbed.
Harmonic Harp Meditation by Susan Stott
On this video, Susan Stott plays her beautiful harmonic harp beautifully.We are fortunate to have her play for us at the very beginning of our yoga classes, which sets the stage for mindful listening. Each pluck on the harp strings calls us into the present moment.Even better, the music attunes the mind to extemporary harmony rather than incessant mind chatter.
