Yoga Nidra

Yoga Nidra Teacher Training

In recent times, Yoga Nidra teacher training is gaining immense popularity. Today we are always connected, deeply stressed, and our nervous systems are constantly under pressure as our minds are filled with many thoughts at any given time. Yoga Nidra is an effective and efficient way to access the parasympathetic state of the nervous system, which is where deep recuperation and healing happens.

Yoga Nidra is referred as “Yogic sleep”. This is a state of being between sleep and awake in full consciousness, which is immensely favorable to deep emotional and physical healing. A brain mapping study found that Yoga Nidra practitioners’ brains showed that they were in a deep resting state, which is seen in deep sleep, while being completely conscious. In those states self-healing processes are initiated, trauma and emotional as well as physical stress can subside.

At Vedic Yoga Academy, you will learn Yoga Nidra as a spiritual practice to help release old burdens and find your own strength and your true potential. As you spend more time inside your mind you will learn to align your conscious mind with your powerful sub consciousness.

With the help of Yoga Nidra training, you will be able to rest, restore, de-stress, increase awareness, reach higher state of consciousness. You will also learn how to guide and teach the same in your own Yoga workshop and classes.
