I AM Yoga Nidra™ Advanced Training

With Kamini Desai, Ph.D

October 4 - 10, 2021

Prerequisite: I AM Yoga Nidra™ Professional Training

Discover the ancient esoteric roots of Yoga Nidra Sleep Meditation

If you have been wanting to deepen your practice and delivery through appropriate interpretation and comprehension of Scriptural Study, as well as receiving expanded teachings on esoteric yogic anatomy, this advanced course is for you! The I AM Yoga Nidra™ Advanced Training effects a quantum leap into the hidden teachings of the Upanishads, the Yoga Sutras, the origins of Yoga Nidra, as well as rare teachings from our lineage– all of which will allow you to cultivate an even more profound grasp of the influence, scope, and applications of this practice.  You will enhance your knowledge of the Koshas, their functions, and how they can be nourished and strengthened through the practice of Yoga Nidra. Through scriptural study, you will gain a deeper appreciation of the immensity of Yoga Nidra and the place it holds in the 8-limbed Path of Yoga. Receive little-known secrets to provide further clarity on experiences had during Yoga Nidra. Acquire a more thorough comprehension of the Higher and Lower Mind, how the Ego is created, the role it plays in your spiritual journey, and how to unlock the unique power of the Wisdom body to shape and create your life. 

Solutions for grief, trauma and transition

You will learn the basics of Yoga Nidra as it is applied in Yoga Therapy, using protocols to aid those seeking emotional integration; as well as solutions for grief, trauma, and other forms of energetic blockages. We will take an in-depth look at visualizations and image techniques, understanding how they relate to the Mental and Wisdom Bodies, when to incorporate them, and how to deliver them so they do not activate the Thinking Mind.

IMPORTANT: Certificate of Completion, Manuals and Cards are provided digitally for your reference and to print at your own cost. Manuals and Cards can also be ordered separately. Cards need to be printed and must be available on the first day of the course.  Once you register for this course, a free account will be created for you (if you don’t already have one) inside of our system and the digital version of this course will be assigned to your user account.

This is where you will:

a. Reference your digital Manual and Cards
b. Print or Order your Cards and Manual (manual is optional)
