Yoga Nidra has deepened my meditation practice to a level I did not think possible for me – Christianne Valdes
Sacramento, CA (PRWEB) February 05, 2013
Yoga Nidra (Yogic sleep) is an ancient art of healing 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 on Paradise Island in the Bahamas and Sept. 25-29, 2013 in Sivananda Yoga Farm in Grass Valley, California.
During the program, students will learn techniques which will allow them to reach new states of conscious awareness with acute perception of both their physical and subtle body. As the students practice these techniques, they will feel the flow of prana move through physical, emotional, and energetic blockages. The end result is the healing of the body and mind and the expansion of consciousness. During this program, students will both experience yoga nidra, and learn how to teach it to others. Upon completion, students will be prepared to offer this service to their community.
The program is offered by Dr. Marc Halpern, director of the California College of Ayurveda.
