Yoga Nidra is growing in popularity in the yoga community for very good reason.  The regular practice of Yoga Nidra, or yogic sleep with awareness, offers many wonderful benefits, including complete release of all body tension and a deeper level of consciousness, allowing you to access the deepest levels of your mind and examine your long held beliefs and habits. Those who practice Yoga Nidra regularly report better sleep patterns, recovery from stress and anxiety, and a deeper, more meaningful yoga practice, as well as improved relationships with others. Yoga Nidra is also used for relief in cases of PTSD, grief support, and pain management.


Although this workshop is designed for certified yoga teachers wishing to learn how to lead and teach yoga nidra, it is open and valuable for anyone who would like to learn more and deepen their own personal practice.


Topics covered include:


  • What is Yoga Nidra and How Do We Practice It

  • Preparatory Practices

  • Benefits and Intentions

  • Important Things to Know When Leading Others in Yoga Nidra

  • Brain Wave Function and the Science of Yoga Nidra

  • Yoga Nidra vs. Hypnosis and Meditation

  • Yoga Nidra and the Pancha Kosha 

  • Sankalpa, Sanskaras, and Samadhi 

  • Significance in Trauma, Addiction, Anxiety, Depression, Sleep Disorder and Autoimmune Disorder

  • The Significance of Regular Practice in Changing the Workings of the Mind

  • Yoga Nidra as a Spiritual Practice
