Yoga Nidra teacher training
"I have been a seeker and still am, but I stopped asking the books and the stars. I started listening to the teaching of my Soul." – Rumi
Yoga nidra, or Yogis psychic sleep, as it is commonly known, is a powerful meditation technique and one of the most accessible yoga practices to develop and maintain. While the practitioner rests comfortably in savasana (corpse pose), this systematic meditation takes you through the pancha maya kosha (five layers of self), leaving you with a sense of wholeness. You no longer have to dread spending hours sitting on the floor waiting for liberation.
When we practice Yoga Nidra, our brain waves slow down so that we can connect the space between our conscious and subconscious minds. Tapping into that space gives us the tools to overcome mental, spiritual, and physical obstacles and brings us closer to understanding our true nature.
Yoga nidra can serve as a pathway to freedom without creating bodily stress. A samskara (mental groove) is formed by a repetitive thought or habit that is deepened in the mind and body, creating a mental impression (groove) over time. These impressions can cause adverse reactions and emotions, which prevent a unification of the five layers (koshas) of one's self. If these negative emotions continue to plague you, the mental/emotional layer of the self cannot integrate with the other layers: physical, energetic, higher wisdom, and bliss body. This is where yoga nidra can be beneficial.
