"I felt very relaxed and at the same time full of energy after the session. A highlight for me was to appoint an intention and the reconnection with nature in your own room. An EcoNidra session with Kat is wonderful. I slept fabulous after the session."

"After the session, I felt more integrated in my body, with a sense of calm spaciousness as well. A highlight for me was Kat's tone of voice and pacing.

"Those nature sounds! I was once again taken back to my childhood where I spent many happy times roaming the swamps, woods and fields. The birds’ songs mesmerized me, just as they did back then. You did an amazing job of leading me into a relaxed state. 45 minutes well spent! Setting up the week for loving and peaceful interactions throughout." 
- participant
-
"Prior to the session, I'd had a very busy day at work and my head was full of noise and thoughts. I felt so much more calm and in a deep state of relaxation after the session. I felt so relaxed I went to sleep shortly after it and had a lovely sleep. A highlight for me were the incredible nature sounds - it literally felt like I was in middle of the Amazon! The sounds were so clear and vibrant - the sound quality was excellent. Really special to experience! :)" -

"
Thank you so much! This EcoNIDRA session was beautiful, restful and deep. It is exactly what I needed to stop, let go and deeply let my mind and body rest in simple awareness.
After I emailed you I realized I was really (and am still) deeply dropped into a deep state of calm- amazing!" - Sari
-
"After the session, I felt deeply peaceful and happy. These feelings are still there to tap into, hours after the meditation. From the moment I showed up, you greeted me warmly and honored me by requesting my assistance with a sound check. Throughout the session, you in many small and big ways took care of making us all feel welcome, comfortable, and secure. As a teacher of many group online classes, I was impressed with your skill and kindness in holding space." -

"I feel grounded, nourished and refreshed. It brought back some incredible memories from my time in the Galapagos ten years ago. Wonderful! At a time like now, when it is harder to feel connected to others, this was just the tonic I needed." -

Elinor

-

"I was stressed and multi-tasking before the session. Now, in this time since the session, since I have been up from laying down, I am more deeply relaxed than I can remember. I feel very much in y relaxed body and my mind has let go of thinking. It is similar to how I feel when I am in what is a called, "Reiki Sleep"-my body feels heavy and grounded- I am fully aware of gravity holding me to The Earth and I am experiencing from my heart instead of my mind."

"The EcoNIDRA session made me feel connected to my mother who passed away 12 weeks ago. I have done it  5 times now and all the times it felt like she was there in some kind of way. Wow I have integrated so much and I feel so much more relaxed and healthy. Thank you!!"
- Krystle 
-
"It was a really lovely and fascinating experience - thank you so much. It made me feel more relaxed. More focused. More ready to sleep. You have a lovely speaking voice and judge how fast you speak and the length of the pauses really well. Really relaxing session with fascinating use of natural soundscapes and visualisation."

I also loved the invitation of the nature elements around me during the session. I love the combination between yoga nidra and nature connection. Best of both worlds! I would definitely recommend it to others."

"Before the session I felt tired and emotionally exhausted. After the session the stress went completely away, I was feeling relaxed and fully recharged. My imagination took me to the sea with all its colours, sounds and smells. It was a beautiful journey, especially appreciated while in lockdown. If you want to relax your body and mind, you should try this wonderful experience with natural sounds and visualisation for calming effect. The online session brings you into the present moment, no matter what your current circumstances." -

“After the session I felt completely restored, strongly calmed and nourished. A highlight for me was the connection with the Earth and the nature that I felt during the session, which nourished me, made me feel as a part of the whole; awakening the feeling of compassion and love towards the nature, non-human beings. If you want to get completely restored, to go beyond the body and mind to the heart, to relax deeply, go to EcoNidra :)” - participant

“What I felt after the session was clarity and deep peacefulness. I love the journey through various nature sounds. This is a beautiful experience incorporating nature and eco-consciousness with the ancient, deeply restful practice of yoga nidra.

A deeply relaxing and calming journey - I would definitely recommend this to anyone who just needs to switch off for an hour." - Carike

Participant

"I am extremely relaxed right now and enjoyed my journey very much. I was back playing on the in the creek in my childhood farm for awhile. I was thinking about those videos you watch of seniors and how they light up and find peace when they hear music from when they were young. Nature sounds could work the same way."
- Participant

-

"I was quite happy, blissful and refreshed after the session. Almost every night, since I was little, when I'm in my bed just about to go to sleep I “travel" with my imagination to different nature scenes. I usually go to the forest and imagine myself in the water, touching rocks, etc. I love it! I always tell my friends that they can go anywhere just before they go to sleep. However, in the last 6 months, it has been a bit difficult for me to see the scenery in my mind as sharp as I used to see it. I don't know why BUT when I did the EcoNidra something happened in my brain, I think it was a bird sound, that triggered something that helped me see again very clear and sharp, even sharper than before. I'm so grateful for that. That is a HUGE highlight for me. Thank you! This is a beautiful, relaxing self-care experience that nurtures the soul and connects you with mother earth." -Maureen

-

  “Thank you so much!! I was so deeply relaxed, but not sleepy afterwards, even though I believe I was half asleep during the session. Your voice Kat is so nourishing and smooth, so it's impossible not to relax. Awareness that my plant was witnessing my journey of relaxation made a kind of deeper connection between the two of us. Yes, yes, go for it. It's so simple, but getting so deep in your body and mind. Really cool!!” – Barbara 

-

"I dropped very deeply when you guided us into our heart and to send out cords to others or situations and send light there. That, followed by taking us through the awareness of the different points on our body and then returning after that to what we had focused on before was very powerful. It felt that a healing process through the web of interbeing was catalyzed. I also loved the nature sounds which took me to wonderful places as I saw much nature playing- it was like a virtual sit spot."  -participant

“After the session, I was much more relaxed. If you want deep relaxation (and a good night sleep) you should attend this session. Thank you Kat!” – Lianne

"Before the session, my mind was incredibly busy having just come from work. It took a while to calm it, and not to be distracted by my thoughts, then I just ‘fell’ into it.

-

"I realized that being more aware and changing perspective in life can open up to a whole new world. I do not necessarily have to travel the whole world to discover new things. It is just around the corner if I open up for my senses." - participant

-

"It is very inspiring to be together from all over the world to experience the power of nature. It opens my mind and now I experience nature differently. It gives great tools to be in contact with nature." - participant

-

“These coming weeks I’m going to do some things that are out of my comfort zone. Things I feel excited about, but they also bring up old fears and anxiety. Before the session, I felt a tightness in my heart area about these things. Afterwards I felt that my heart had opened much more and also a flow of deep trust and self love went through my body. <3” -Participant

-

“I love your voice! And I loved the part where we we rooting in the earth and made connection with the roots from other species. I felt such a deep connection and love.
