In our daily lives, we rarely experience true rest—the kind of rest that enables our bodies to restore and repair as they are meant to. Approximately 70 million people in the U.S. suffer from some form of sleep disorder, which means that even as we sleep, we are not ﬁnding the balance our bodies need to achieve homeostasis. As we normalize stress, fatigue, and imbalance, we experience different levels of illness.
Yoga nidra or “yogic sleep,” a sleep-based meditation using breath, relaxation, and visualization, offers healing and true balance. Its effects address physical, mental, and spiritual dis-ease, and it has been used successfully to treat PTSD, addiction, and ADHD. As a yogic practice, it allows us to release deeply embedded and unconscious patterns and become more fully who we are.
This training is open to all students regardless of skill level or practice. You’ll experience ﬁrsthand the effect of yoga nidra and learn its foundations as well as how to conducts sessions for individuals and groups.
