Is this the right training for me?

The training is designed for:

  • yoga practitioners who want to delve deeper in their personal practice and learn how to manage stress effectively.
  • yoga teachers who want to develop a new skill and deepen their understanding of yogic concepts and lifestyle.
  • health professionals who are looking for an effective tool to support clients. Research proves that Yoga Nidra benefits people suffering from anxiety, chronic fatigue, digestive disorders, sleeping difficulties, obesity, addiction.

Yoga Nidra does not involve physical movement. The 9 days immersion does involve yoga classes with postures and breathing techniques, however these classes are restorative and rather gentle.
