yoga nidra 25hr Teacher Training
This training will be focused on the system behind the powerful practice of Yoga Nidra, or psychic sleep. Over the course of 5 days, we will be exploring the underlying principles of Yoga Nidra and how the full benefits of this practice can be realized by the individual and effectively shared to continue transferring the benefits on. We tend to have tons of different things we do
to engage us – sports, activities, cooking, cleaning, etc.; most of our day is enveloped in movement or engagement of some kind. The art of Yoga Nidra is to be fully present in awareness, but not engaged in the fluctuations that are typical of our normal mental and physical processes. In this way, we can realize the full potential of our prana, or our vital life force, and its regenerative nature.
We will be exploring the underlying principles of Yoga Nidra including (but not limited to):
Physiological basis for the practice
Script components and structure
Delivery methodology and set-up
Sankalpa or intention setting principles
And; we will explore the philosophical basis of how deep meditative practice such as Yoga Nidra fit within the system of Yogic Principles, and why this practices can be so deeply healing
Not only will we be exploring the purpose of these techniques in an intellectual and theoretical way, but we will be solidifying the concepts into our understanding of the delivery by engaging in the applied practice; led practice will be offered as an example of delivery method as well as serving as an example of the great healing properties of the practice, as well as supported
practice time in small groups with feedback components to gain comfort with the skill of teaching the practice of Yoga Nidra.
This course is Yoga Alliance certified and has the option to be included in your 300-hour Yoga Teacher Training hours. You will not be a certified Ayurvedic consultant from this course but you will have many new tools that will enhance both your own health and your yoga student’s experience.
About the instructor
Steve's practices of yoga started much before he knew anything about or had seen any examples of yoga poses. As a young teen, he was interested in gaining knowledge and clarity of mind, searching for teachings and insight in a way that he could understand. He began studying Eastern philosophy at a young age (13 or 14) in the form of Buddhist texts and teachings. Something deep about the truth he saw beyond the text spoke to him, but it wouldn’t be for a number of years where that would resurface for him and take on a new form. When the teachings of yoga started to come into his life, he was drawn back to his early years reading Buddhist scriptures. He saw the same essence in the teachings of yoga as he did in the Buddhist teachings, but this time they were presented in a way that made more sense to him. He continued his journey into yoga, but everything changed when he met his teacher, Dharma Mittra. To read more about Steve's journey, visit www.stevefazzari.com.
