Yoga Nidra Teacher Training - Thursday- Sunday, February 1-4 at Sivananda Ashram Yoga Farm from 8:30am-5pm

bee_flowers_best_650Yoga nidra is the art of conscious relaxation. You will learn techniques which will allow you to reach new states of conscious awareness with acute perception of both your physical and subtle body. As you practice these techniques you will feel the flow of prana move through physical, emotional, and energetic blockages. The end result is the healing of the body and mind and the expansion of consciousness. During this program, students will both experience yoga nidra, and learn how to teach it to others. Upon completion, students will be prepared to offer this service to their community.

Upon completion of the Yoga Nidra course, graduates will:
Be able to teach Yoga Nidra in group and private settings
Have an understanding of the physiological basis of Yoga Nidra
Have an understanding of the history of Yoga Nidra
This Yoga Nidra course is designed for health care providers and to advance their knowledge and training in the application of Yoga Nidra in a complimentary medicine environment. Nurses and health professionals will use this information to help their patients learn how to deeply relax (through conscious deep relaxation relaxation techniques).
