Yoga Nidra I (YO 401)
(through Southwest Institute of Healing Arts)

January 18-20, 2019

Spirit of Yoga – Southwest Institute of Healing Art’s new, dedicated Yoga Teacher Training facility

Yoga Nidra Introductory Weekend Intensive (YO 401)
This theoretical and experiential foundation class is designed to introduce you to yoga nidra as a little known limb of the yogic arts. Literally translated as “yogic sleep,” yoga nidra enables practitioners to reach profoundly deep states of consciousness through a powerful series of interchangeable techniques performed lying down.

Explore the original intent of yoga, the three states of consciousness and yoga nidra as a tool for accessing the fourth state. Learn how yoga nidra takes you to subtle realms where karmic patterns that are solid and difficult to change in the waking state are more fluid and easy to shift in the meditative sleep state. Learn about the subtle sheaths of the aura, the koshas, and how yoga nidra is designed to take you to the subtlest sheath where karmic impressions are held.

Manual: $25 (will be added to for all remaining classes).
