What is Yoga Nidra:

The ancient practice of Yoga Nidra is a form of meditation – a unique combination of deep rest & relaxation within a state of alert awareness. Yoga Nidra rejuvenates and renews both the physical body and the mind. It is a quiet practice that heals and transforms.

Yoga Nidra means the “sleep of the yogis”. It is a state of relaxed consciousness, which is the result of a guided sequential journey inward to stillness. Yoga Nidra gives the practitioner an opportunity to release long held perceptions, patterns and beliefs that are relied on to make sense of our modern world.

We are all conditioned in the way we experience our reality by memories of the past. Within the 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 intensive you will learn:

  • The history and development of Yoga Nidra
  • Intentions, and how they shape the practice
  • The neuroscience of Yoga Nidra 
  • The stages of Yoga Nidra
  • Understanding the Kosha’a (5 subtle bodies)
  • Creating Sankalpa (heart felt intention) 
  • Yoga Nidra as a meditative practice
  • The role of deep restorative rest on regulating the nervous system
  • Growing your own practice
  • Developing scripts and finding your voice
  • Working with specific groups

At the end of this course you will have the skills needed to teach groups and individuals (including children) and the confidence to offer others the gift of Yoga Nidra.

This course is appropriate for yoga teachers, health professionals, dedicated yoga practitioners, parents & partners. CEU’s have been approved by the Yoga Alliance and Ontario Nurses Association. If you are a professional requiring CEU’s for your college please inquire and we will make contact to try to arrange this if possible.
