In this course you will learn the 8 basic stages/steps of Yoga Nidra, the background and science behind it and how to use the practice in order to clear subconscious patterns, create new ones and awaken deeper states of awareness. Yoga nidra will assist you in tapping into your highest potential, allow you to access dream and deep sleep states with consciousness and approach life with more empowerment. This course is a powerful way to access previously unaccessed layers of consciousness, to learn to tune into the astral body/dream body and to become a potent manifestor in your life. After this course you should feel confident to lead your own Yoga Nidra meditations for others and should have reached a depth with your own practice wherein you feel lighter and more cleared out from previously unseen impressions which had been controlling your life. Filled with audios, videos and more - I am excited to offer this course to you!
