I first learned yoga nidra while living as a resident in an ashram in northern India where Swami Satyananda Saraswati stayed during the last days of his life. I was very fortunate to have been taught yoga nidra by the senior Swamis of this ancient order.
Upon returning to the US I began producing yoga nidra meditations on YouTube and have reached over 13 Million viewers!
After practicing and leading yoga nidra for 14 years I have started teaching my unique approach and understanding of this incredibly powerful form of meditation anyone can benefit from.
Everyone receives what they need from a yoga nidra session when it is led correctly by the facilitator. This course teaches you a solid theoretical understanding of yoga nidra, as well as a great practical advantage as a result of the assignments given (such as writing your own scrips).
Yoga nidra is a systematic method of meditation that leads you inwards from the gross to the subtle levels of your being where you can experience perfect relaxation, stillness and silence. In that silence you can receive the therapeutic relief you most need and you can encounter those sterling qualities of your own true nature, such as bliss, joy and serenity.
I will personally teach you how to write your own scripts, how to develop a concept and turn it into a theme for yoga nidra. You are provided with sample scripts, sample yoga nidra sessions specifically for facilitators, and other resources to ensure your success.
You will learn how to write yoga nidra sessions for beginners, intermediate and advanced students. You will learn how to develop a series of yoga nidra sessions on a special topic such as chakras, pranic healing, etc.
I also share my own secrets for developing a pleasant voice that your listeners love listening to, as well as insights on pacing your instructions and structuring ‘essential silence’ into your scripts. This information is the result of 10+ years producing meditations on YouTube.
I look forward to greeting you inside!
