Transformational Power of Yoga Nidra

Navigating the Subconscious

Yoga Nidra is a scientific methodology for exploring the subconscious using guided imagery during trance-like states of relaxation. Coupled with focused intention setting, or sankalpa, based on what we know (what's conscious), we can enter the subconscious (what's unknown) to discover our truest motivations, our deepest unmet needs, and create lasting change in our conscious lives. In this way, we may address dysfunctional behavior and relationship patterns, self-limiting belief systems, and come closer to the goal of full Self realization.



This course consists of four modules, each held once per year at retreat centers around the world. Modules 1 & 2 must be completed in order to receive continuing education hours with the Yoga Alliance. Modules 3 & 4 are optional.
