Yoga Nidra Immersion
Yoga Nidra, or yogic sleep, is a form of guided meditation that enables us to deeply relax, to resolve past emotional scars, and to free ourselves from samskaras (ingrained patterns). This powerful meditation style enables practitioners to relax and explore each kosha, experiencing the unchanging being within. It can also be used to plant heart-felt intentions, enabling us to manifest our truest desires. You will immerse yourself in multiple Yoga Nidra practices, as well as learn how to craft and lead a Yoga Nidra meditation. This class is great for building your own practice and/or sharing it with others The 20 hours of the course will consist of: Reading of Yoga Nidra by Swami Satyananda Saraswati prior to class; 15 hours of instruction, including four Yoga Nidra practices in three different styles; a thirty-minute meditation led by you, recorded and submitted for feedback; and a homework assignment, completed and submitted for feedback. During our time together, we will explore the background, fundamentals, and benefits of Yoga Nidra, explore 3 styles of Yoga Nidra (Satyananda, Amrit, and iRest), review the kosha model, discuss samskaras and sankalpas, explore OM and the states of consciousness, discuss creating and delivering Yoga Nidra scripts, and practice Yoga Nidra delivery with a partner.
This class will be led by Carin Lockhart, E-RYT500, YACEP, Advanced Amrit Certified, iRest Certified
