Learn to safely and confidently teach guided relaxation, yoga nidra. Yoga nidra is Sanskrit for “yogic sleep”, a powerfully healing and transformational technique from the Tantra Yoga tradition usually practiced laying on the back. The practitioner is lead, or leads themself, into deeper states of relaxation by quieting the nervous system, systematically. Yoga nidra is safe for all practitioners, is a tool for deeper self-awareness, and is used to relieve symptoms of PTSD in clinical studies.
Expect to practice at least four different systems of yoga nidra that include iRest, the Himalayan system, and Bihar School nidra from Swami Satyananda Saraswati. There is a slideshow lecture explaining the history of yoga nidra, its intention, an explanation of how it works, its physical and subtle body effects, and the different components of a yoga nidra practice, including sankalpa. You will receive scripts and practice teaching in this nurturing, safe environment. Deep dive into yoga nidra through the refinement of teaching techniques and methodology.
