A Grounding Guided Meditation

2a

 

It’s the time of year when we could all use a little more rest and rejuvenation. Parties, shopping, social engagments and travel, coupled with the high tensions and expectations that this season brings, can leave us feeling overwhelmed and overstretched. One of my favourite practices to combat these feelings is Yoga Nidra. Yoga Nidra is a type of guided meditation that takes you out of your conscious mind and allows the opportunity for deep rest and restoration. It is said that 30 minutes of Yoga Nidra is the equivalent of 4 hours of deep sleep.

With that in mind, I have created a 15 minute grounding Yoga Nidra to help keep you steady and centered in the midst of all the hustle and bustle. Take a few moments over the next two weeks to come back to yourself, and I think you’ll be surprised at how nice it can feel.

Wishing you all a calm and peaceful holiday season! I’ll see you in the New Year 🙂

 

 

December Grounding Playlist

This time of year often makes me feel frantic and airy, so to stay grounded I incorporate lots of rooting poses and strong beats into my yoga practice and yoga playlist. Here’s what I’m practicing to at the moment.

 

 

I’d love to know what keeps you grounded this time of year, and what music helps out. Let me know in the comments or drop me a message on Instagram – @laurenewilkie
