About the Course

Yoga Nidra is a state of consciousness after deep relaxation where we can visualize and manifest how we would like this life to be - happy, calm, peaceful, healthy, successful, etc. Traditionally, we practice lying down in Savasana (corpse pose) for up to 60 minutes. Yoga Nidra elements can be incorporated into relaxation at the end of yoga practice. During a Yoga Nidra session, we release our consciousness from the ties, habits, and tendencies of the physical body and allow it to connect to the Greater Whole and the energy of the path we wish to live. In scientific terms, we build the neuropathways to the response we wish in our physical bodies. Regular practice of Yoga Nidra strengthens those pathways and guides the physical body to the life we wish and overall well-being. We become the conscious creator of our life.
