Guided meditation to cultivate presence
This short, sweet practice is a guide into presence so you can move into deeper relationship with yourself and others. To sweeten your conversations and interactions for more successful communication; and so you can offer yourself your full attention without judgement, criticism or analysis. Being present to whatever is happening inside of you, so you can learn to do the same for others. The practice is around 13 minutes and can be enjoyed on its own or use as a guide into your own meditation and sit for as long as you have time for. Enjoy lovely ones. I see you. I am here.

20 minute guided meditation to soothe you back into presence
This short and sweet meditation is especially useful if you’re new to meditation or looking for a fresh way into your practice. We play with different anchors, such as breath, the body, the senses and the third eye, to call us home when thoughts have carried us away. The more we cultivate this return to presence, the easier it is to watch our thoughts and not get over identified with them. Super helpful if you’ve been in your head a lot and need to create some space inside. Enjoy and get in touch if you have any questions. Much love from us ❤
Guided Yoga Nidra from the Himalayas
Hello and welcome to yoga nidra. This is a 30 minute guided meditation for deep relaxation. It’s read by Pete here at The Mat Movement from the book Yoga Nidra by Swami Satyananda Saraswati.
Pete read this guided mediation for Collette on the balcony of a wooden hut in Jibhi in Himachal Pradesh, Northern India. The sounds of distant thunder and rain on the tin roof are real and create an atmosphere you can easily escape to. We hope that you allow yourself a blissful meditation.
Please download the MP3 and store it on your device so that you can take a 30 minute break wherever you are and transport yourself to the steep and magical mountains of India.
