With Kamini Desai, Ph.D

August 14 - September 20, 2020

Spirit of Yoga – Southwest Institute of Healing Arts’ new, dedicated Yoga Teacher Training facility

Certificate of Excellence in Yoga Nidra
Yoga Nidra, or “psychic sleep,” is an ancient practice that allows the body and mind to enter into a deeply relaxed state with the intention of bringing the conscious mind into harmony with the subconscious and unconscious. Essentially, while the body enters a state of sleep, the mind is guided into a place between sleep and wakefulness in order to accept positive instructions from a facilitator. These instructions are meant to promote mental healing through the power of unconscious visualization, pranic healing through the flow of light and energy in the body, and an increased sense of will power and resilience.

This powerful technique of synchronization has been shown to be useful in eliminating the root causes of negative thinking and stress. Through the perspective gained in Yoga Nidra, we may reduce the impact of tension-related disorders like hypertension, depression, insomnia, asthma, anxiety, chronic pain, digestive illnesses, and much more. Yoga Nidra is also shown to be highly effective in training the mind to access its natural well of creativity, problem solving, memory faculties, and learning abilities.

In learning to facilitate Yoga Nidra through SWIHA’s Certificate of Excellence program and by making it a routine practice for yourself, you will be able to help yourself and others employ much needed relaxation techniques to find freedom from fear, conflict, pain, and suffering.
