The art of sleeping meditation that awakens your true nature

About Yoga Nidra

Yoga Nidra meditation has the power to take you to the innermost, deepest levels of relaxation where your whole body and being is restored to its natural state of health, vitality and peace.

This weekend will help you understand what Yoga Nidra is and how to use it to release the effects of chronic excess tension, lack of restorative sleep  and the demands of life that have kept you running without time to rest and rejuvenate.

We will explore the 4 stress producing mental tendencies and how they relate to you. You will learn how to create intentions to help reshape these tendencies from the subtlest states of being in Yoga Nidra. Enjoy multiple guided yoga nidra meditation sessions and learn how what is dense and difficult to shift in the waking state can be accessed through meditative dream and deep sleep states.

  • Go deeper into your understanding of Yoga Nidra

  • Experience profound healing and restoration of the body’s reserves.

  • Feel energized, detoxified and rejuvenated.

  • Learn how to create your own intentions and how to place them in Yoga Nidra

  • Get started with one of the easiest and most effective meditation and mindfulness practices you’ll ever come across.
