Yoga Nidra (yogic sleep) is an ancient healing art that, combined with the science of Ayurveda, unleashes the potential for physical, mental and spiritual health. During the training program, students will receive and teach Yoga Nidra sessions. The program is offered March 13-16, 2013 at the Sivananda Yoga Retreat in Paradise Island, Bahamas, and September 25-29, 2013 at the Sivananda Yoga Farm in Grass Valley, California.
During the program, students will learn techniques that will enable them to reach new states of consciousness with an acute perception of their physical and subtle body. As students practice these techniques, they will feel the flow of prana pass through physical, emotional and energetic blockages. The end result is the healing of body and mind and the expansion of consciousness. During this program, students will experience yoga nidra and learn how to teach it to others. Upon completion, students will be ready to provide this service to their community.
The program is offered by Dr. Marc Halpern, director of the California College of Ayurveda.
