About This Event
Join in and learn the essential principles and practices of Yoga Nidra and why it matters during this Yoga Nidra workshop.
Yoga Nidra, or “yogic sleep,” is a comprehensive practice for going far beyond deep relaxation to a place of natural peace and quiet that is tremendously healing for the body, mind, and spirit. Yoga Nidra reliably reveals and awakens your inner reservoir of intuitive understanding and unconditional joy.
You will learn:
Progressive relaxation skills
Specialized breathing techniques
Mindfulness to easily create a deep meditative state
Unique skills for handling stress and tension
You will also have the opportunity to practice pratyahara (sensory withdrawal) to experience six amazing levels of relaxation to replenish your energy and activate creativity and intuition. Receive reliable guidance for safely and effortlessly experiencing a series of fertile brainwave states and higher levels of consciousness. By doing this, it is possible to clear out useless habits and bring about positive and permanent changes in your personality and life by using sankalpa (self-selected resolve). These potent phases of awareness also explain why one hour of Yoga Nidra practice is equal to four hours of sleep. It is gratifying and exhilarating.
By the conclusion of the workshop, you will feel replenished and be able to take the practice of Yoga Nidra home with you.
If you’d like to go deeper in the study and practice of Yoga Nidra, consider extending your stay for the 5-Day Yoga Nidra Training and Certification–Level 1, November 9–14, 2018.
