Yoga Nidra – A Continuing Ed Course for Yoga Teachers
April 25 @ 8:00 AM - 6:00 PM
Yes, yoga nidra is a great “yoga nap” where we rest deeply, but it is so much more. Mandy Glitzer will lead this weekend long module. Learn the science and background of yoga nidra, sleep states, and brain waves. Become familiar with the stages of yoga nidra and how movement and pranayama can lead to a deeper yoga nidra experience. We’ll explore the koshas, samskaras, and karma as they relate to yoga nidra. By the end of this weekend you will feel confident in your ability to create your own yoga nidra script to use at the end of a yoga class, or as a stand alone class.
