Experience the sleep of the yogis with the ancient Tantric practice of Yoga Nidra, a systematic unfolding of physical, mental and emotional relaxation that gives deep rest and rejuvenation. Yoga Nidra is both a state of being, a union with sleep, and a practice, where consciousness is guided to a deeper level of awareness. The sleep of the yogis is something we experience daily, although only fleetingly, those transitional moments to and from sleep.
It is accessible to almost everyone, as the only requirement is to lie on the back for some time and follow the guidance with interest. The body remains still while awareness moves gradually on a journey of discovery through the physical body and to the more subtle dimensions of the breath and mind.
While consciousness floats on the tipping point between waking and sleeping, momentarily disengaged from the temple of the body, a clear path is provided to the subconscious, intuitive mind and is used to generate creative insights and understanding. A key part of the practice is the formulation of a resolution, known as a sankalpa, an expression of what one truly desires. This seed of intention is planted at the deeper levels of the mind and grows in ones daily life.
The course is intended for yoga teachers, practitioners, therapists, bodyworkers and seekers of a deeper understanding of yoga.
It provides a clear understanding of the wonderful healing power of Yoga Nidra, so that you can deepen your own practice, or share and empower others. We will study the theory and science underlying the practice, examining its history and development. As a therapeutic tool, numerous medical studies demonstrate that it has both a curative and preventative effect on a number of conditions, such as stress, anxiety, frustration, insomnia, high blood pressure, PTSD, and their consequences.
A 108 page handbook detailing all the subjects covered will be given at the end of the training,
As well as a certification of completion for Yoga teachers
