The ancient practice of Yoga Nidra is the perfect antidote for modern life, a quiet practice that heals and transforms. Yoga Nidra means the Yogi’s sleep. It is a state of relaxed consciousness, which is the result of a guided sequential journey inward to stillness. Yoga Nidra gives us an opportunity to release long held perceptions and beliefs that we rely on to make sense of our world. We are all conditioned in the way we experience our reality by memories of the past. Within this deep state of Yoga Nidra, one can release and heal subconscious issues related to health, work, stress and relationships resulting in a more conscious and powerful existence.

In this 40 hour intensive you will learn:

Adjunct staff includes:
*A rehabilitation neuroscientist (What is going on in the body and brain during Yoga Nidra meditation)
*A Creative Writing expert- (How to write and incorporate creative journey’s in Yoga Nidra scripts)
* A Mindfulness Meditation Expert– (What is the difference between sitting meditation and Yoga Nidra and the importance and integration of both practices)
