I AM Yoga Nidra™ Self-Assessment Guidelines
Designing and Compiling Your Yoga Nidra
- Who is your audience?
- What is your yoga nidra for?
- Who is your yoga nidra designed to help?
*Identify key components and build your yoga nidra around these answers
We recommend that you practice delivering live yoga nidra experiences for at least 6 months after graduation in order to optimize and refine your delivery over time prior to making a recording.
Review the Structure of I AM Yoga Nidra™ in your manual.
Reference the backs of your cards on when best to use Intention & the correct placements within your yoga nidra experience.
Effective Delivery Guidelines
Read the line silently to yourself.
Feel the energetic impact of the line.
Embody that feeling.
Speak the line from this embodied place.
Use of Pause
- Keep appropriate pause between each line. Not too short, not too fast. The more you remain energetically connected, the more you will automatically deliver at the ideal pace.
- Delivering too quickly creates a minor stress response in the body.
- Delivering too slowly or leaving pauses that are too long can initiate mental activity.
Use of Breath
- Use your breath to inform the quality of your speech and the pacing of your delivery.
- Speak on the exhale.
- Remember to leave the appropriate number of breaths between each component as outlined in the structure of I AM Yoga Nidra™ that you learned in your training.
Yes: Speak energy body to energy body
No: mind to energy
No: mind to mind
