As we navigate the ever-increasing pace of our lives today, many of us find ourselves in a cycle of depletion and exhaustion. We move in a culture that rewards us for multitasking and encourages us to obtain value through external means. More and more we are defined by a yard stick that measures our success in units of money, body image, power, and if you happen to be a yoga teacher- the perfection of your Adho Mukha Vrksasana. Sadly these things are quite like eating white bread. They look delicious, even taste sensational slathered in butter 😉 … but ultimately there is nothing really in there to provide nourishment for the long haul. There is just enough filler to keep us alive and going back for more. Exhausted. Depleted.
Yoga Nidra opens the door to another possibility; a sanctuary, a refuge, an oasis of stillness that allows us to truly rest. Through an understanding of this practice we become aware of the patterns that shape our belief system. Through awareness we find the capacity for change. In our willingness to change we create a better way to live.
This training is for all who seek the path of a more profound understanding and those who wish to share the knowledge by guiding others into the deep waters of the mind.
“The words you speak become the house you live in.”
This course will explore the various definitions and traditions of Yoga Nidra. The first part of the course will introduce the various philosophies and methods of practice as well as context for whom and what they may be good for. The second part of the course will focus on facilitating and guiding yoga nidra and relaxation scripts.
In addition to the class room work there will be some reading assignments, recordings and practise assignments required.
