Yoga Nidra is a highly powerful ancient sleep-based meditation technique originated from the ancient yogic scriptures. Yoga Nidra uses the biological process of sleep to enter an evolutionary state of consciousness where one can awaken to their true nature.
Every night when we sleep, we must do one thing; let go of our thoughts. Consciously entering this twilight zone between waking and sleeping enables us to rest more and more as the space of being beyond the mind, and less and less as the mind itself. Yoga Nidra is one of the most profound and direct channels for accelerated awakening, physical and emotional healing and the management of insomnia, stress, burnout, anxiety, depression and a host of physical diseases that result. Yoga Nidra transforms through the principle of density. Working with the body and mind is like working with a block of ice. Working with energy and subtle realms of consciousness reveals that that which appears dense and difficult to change in the waking state is malleable and easy to change in subtle realms of dream-like consciousness –like water.
This training is a fascinating journey into the origins and true purpose of yoga as well as applications to modern illnesses. We give you a map– but we also give you the practice and guidance to walk that map on your own. You will learn how this ancient technique of Yoga enables you to not only enter subtle realms of consciousness, but reshape your life and your health from beyond the reach of will. Whether you or a loved one is struggling with sleep, addictive habits, stress, weight, or worry, Yoga Nidra sees all these conditions as visible manifestations of one invisible cause. Work with each symptom singly and we will be busy for a lifetime. Work with the cause, and the symptoms will simultaneously begin erode of their own accord.
