Advanced Yoga Nidra Training

Kamini Desai 

Author, Yoga Nidra: The Art of Transformational Sleep

Svaha Yoga Amsterdam, The Netherlands

Only for those who have finished Yoga Nidra 1 Certification

Dive deeper into the esoteric and practical applications of I AM Yoga Nidra™. Drawing on little-known teachings of the Upanishads, scripture study of the Yoga Sutras, and rare teachings from our Lineage, we will explore the origins of Yoga Nidra as an ancient mystical practice.


We go deeper into the anatomy of the koshas, the importance of the wisdom body and how Yoga Nidra benefits all koshas. You will understand the higher and lower mind, how the ego is created and how the ego can be used in service of the Self.

New techniques for yourself and your students include new body rotations, breath and awareness cards, kosha experiences and prana/mother divine Yoga Nidra. You will also learn basics of Yoga Nidra as a form of yoga therapy, using protocols to aid those seeking emotional integration and solutions for trauma, PTSD and other forms of energetic blockages.

We will have a more in-depth look at visualizations and image techniques — understanding how they relate to the mental and wisdom body, when to use them, and how to deliver them so they do not bring in the thinking mind.

Finally, learn specifics on delivering Yoga Nidra to children or the inner child. You will receive a unique card deck especially for this. Even if you think you don’t want to teach to kids, these cards make an excellent addition – even for adults.

You can expect:


In-depth study of Yoga Nidra through sacred texts


Twice-daily Yoga Nidra to restore, rejuvenate and walk the path that the ancient teachings have laid out for you 


Yoga Nidra as a therapeutic tool for any stage of emotional integration


New Advanced Yoga Nidra card deck!


How to ask the wisdom body for clarity and guidance


Time to go within, restore and be re-inspired
