What is I AM Yoga Nidra™ Meditation?

 Yoga Nidra is an ancient sleep-based meditation technique that has the power to take you to the innermost, deepest levels of relaxation where your whole body and being is permeated by peace of mind and profound stillness. It unlocks the mystical, integrative powers of the subconscious, as well as your higher centers of consciousness, to effortlessly erase your most tenacious, self-destructive habits and behavior patterns. It is said by yogis that 45 minutes of Yoga Nidra is as restorative as three hours of sleep.

Yoga Nidra Can Help You manage & heal common stress-related health issues such as

Insomnia & Stress

Habits & Addictions

Trauma & PTSD


Depression & Anxiety


What makes I AM Yoga Nidra™ meditation unique?

I AM Yoga Nidra™ meditation is designed as more than a relaxation. It is a meditation technique that not only relaxes the body, but creates a different relationship with stress producing thoughts and emotions. It is designed to guide the practitioner to recognize the silent place of being that always resides within us. The IAM method focuses primarily on quieting the mind and boosting the energy flow in the body (prana). This released energy in the body increases the healing potential available during yoga nidra and typically takes practitioners into deeper states of meditation more quickly. That is why this style is often known as “the deep one”.

“This course should be mandatory for all humans.”

I AM Yoga Nidra™ Founders

The Integrative Amrit Method of Yoga Nidra is based on the teachings of Gurudev Shri Amritji and crafted into a practical, modern training methodology by his daugher, Yogacharya Kamini Desai, PhD. They are the distillation of the ancient yogic teachings that enables you to not only enter subtle realms of consciousness, but reshape your life and your health from beyond the reach of will. Whether you or a loved one is struggling with  sleep, addictive habits, stress, weight, or worry, Yoga Nidra sees all these conditions as visible manifestations of one invisible cause. Work with each symptom singly and we will be busy for a lifetime. Work with the cause, and the symptoms will simultaneously begin erode of their own accord.
