California College of Ayurveda Certification

Yoga nidra is the art of conscious deep relaxation.  In this teacher training, you will learn techniques which will allow you and your students to reach new states of conscious awareness of both your physical and subtle  energy body.  As these techniques are practiced, you can identify and release blockages to the flow of life energy. The end result is the healing of the body and mind,  the experience of the yoga nidra state of consciousness, and an increased capacity to manifest your deepest aspirations.  


In these four days, you 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.  You will receive certification as a  Yoga Nidra Instructor through the California College of Ayurveda so you will be able to teach yoga nidra as individual sessions and/or group classes in your own private practice, yoga studios, hospitals, schools and many other institutions that are looking for holistic healing modalities.  Even if you are uncertain about embarking on teaching in the future, you can still benefit from taking this class for your own personal growth,.
