Enjoy this 20 minute deep relaxation with its emphasis on healing and nurturing the body. This relaxation is suitable as part of your yoga practice or when you have 20 minutes to spare and want to spend quality time nurturing yourself.

Anouschka will guide you through this deep relaxation:

  • Lying on the floor, making yourself comfortable and adjusting your body as needed to help you settle
  • Tensing and relaxing the body to help you settle, whilst beginning to activate the parasympathetic nervous system
  • Using your breath to relax deeper and release tension
  • Focusing on healing and nurturing your body with a wonderful golden light visualisation
  • Drawing on the affirmation: ‘I am filled with radiant health and wellbeing’
  • Completing your relaxation feeling refreshed and re-invigorated

This is a very good relaxation! Thank you, Anouschka. There is just the right amount of mobilising, then focus on breath and light. Brillo.

I too love these relaxations and use them a lot and would have agreed with Christine’s comment ......... then I read Padmas reply........unfortunately haven’t got to the bliss! Afraid my head still wanders off ....... I bring it back but can miss quite a bit . Thank you Maggie

Hi Anouschka I absolutely love your relaxations which I use a lot. It would be great if you could record a couple more for variation. Thank you Christine xx

Hi Christine Great that you are using these deep relaxations frequently. If you discover even just one route into that space of bliss you are truly blessed. Yes we generally love variety and something new to stimulate and excite our minds but actually this isn't the point of deep relaxation at all. One by one withdraw the senses until only your awareness on the sense of hearing remains. Focus only on the guidance of the one leading the relaxation - this takes more discipline when you have heard it before - and that is the practice. We do,of course, offer many different relaxations because this is one of those areas where 'one size does not fit all' When you have found the voice that works for you and the relaxation that hits the spot - stay with it and enjoy the unfolding delights of going ever deeper. Bliss here we come! Padma

Thank you - we thought having short medium and long were a perfect way to make relaxation available to everyone. :-)

Deare anouschka. A Relaxation a day keeps the doctor away! Thanks for the various lengths of relaxation. I do them on a daily basis and select the duration that suits me at that time. A jem in the Dru online necklace. Thanks.

Thank you Anouschka. Your voice is nurturing and soothing, just perfect for the relaxations. I'm using them as part of my recovery plan for Chronic Fatigue. Here's hoping it works. I'm enjoying being able to relax at last.

Thank you both for your kind words - I love relaxations myself - so it must shine through! It's worth doing even a short relaxation everyday - its very healing for the body and calms the mind and nervous system. Enjoy!
