Yoga Nidra, known as the ‘Yogic Sleep’ is one of the supreme & effective techniques used by experienced practitioners to prepare their body and mind for meditation, develop deep awareness and enter the subconscious mind.
In order to enter Yoga Nidra we train deep relaxation techniques. This powerful yoga practice involves consciously taking your attention to different parts of the body and relaxing them, one by one. Thus Yoga Nidra helps to clean out blocks in the nadi system and make the vital energy, the Prana, flow without disturbance. Deep healing of physical and mental trauma happens naturally and the mind gets prepared for entering meditation.
In this teacher training program, you will learn to surrender to the healinh effect of Yoga Nidra practice as well as how to guide your own students into the depth of their mind.
