We invite you to experience and become certified in Yoga Nidra, the science of deep relaxation. Yoga means “union.” Nidra means “sleep.” Yoga Nidra is a state between sleep and deep relaxation. It is a systematic method of inducing deep physical, mental, and emotional relaxation. The practice is done while lying down on one’s back. The eyes are closed and the body made completely comfortable. It involves deep relaxation with inner awareness while the instructor leads a guided session with his/her voice. The teacher uses auto-suggestion cues, visualization, and affirmation to create an environment in which healing can occur.

A few of the benefits now being confirmed by the medical field are increased immune function, digestive function, and better sleep. The gifts of Yoga Nidra are the releasing of old habits, fatigue, worry, and stress. Yoga Nidra can be practiced by anyone of any size or shape. This is not a physical exercise but rather a technique for physical rejuvenation, mental relaxation, spiritual growth, and overall wellness. According to yogic thought, unregulated stress is the root of most physical and mental ailments today. The secret of Yoga Nidra (and to better health) lie in its ability to relieve tension and stress at its root and restore a balanced state of mind and a deeply rested body.

This 4-week, 30 hour course certifies yoga teachers and others to lead Yoga Nidra sessions in both group and individualized settings. In order to share the deeply healing practice of Yoga Nidra, the instructors have recorded four video sessions (one for each week of the course) comprised of a combination of yoga, pranayama, and Yoga Nidra, to help you deeply feel the benefits of this ancient tradition. Participants will learn about the philosophy and science behind the age-old practice of Yoga Nidra with over six hours of philosophy lectures. Additional video materials include four to five hours of technical material exploring the various stages that comprise a Yoga Nidra session and learning about various types of Yoga Nidras. One weekly recorded Q&A session is offered in which participants can ask questions beforehand that the instructors address in the recorded session.

This course is perfect for yoga instructors wanting to gain a new skill to offer to their students and anyone interested in learning about this spiritual, healing practice for his/her own growth and/or to share with others. Upon completion of the course graduates will receive a certificate of completion and can register the hours with Yoga Alliance for 30 CEs.
