Yoga Nidra for Complete Relaxation and Stress Relief – Online

with Julie Lusk, E-RYT 500, M.Ed.

January 5 - 26, 2023

Thursdays: Jan. 5, 12, 19, and 26

In this online workshop, discover the essential principles, practices, and benefits of Yoga Nidra, or “yogic sleep”. Go far beyond deep relaxation to a place of natural peace and quiet that is tremendously healing for the body, mind, and spirit. Yoga Nidra reliably reveals and awakens your inner reservoir of intuitive understanding and unconditional joy.

Learn progressive relaxation skills, specialized breathing techniques, guided imagery, and mindfulness to easily create a deep meditative state and discover unique skills for handling stress and tension.

Yoga Nidra is based on Yoga teachings and backed by contemporary science. Yoga Nidra is fundamental to a complete Hatha Yoga session and can also be done as a separate practice on its own. It is gratifying and exhilarating.

In this online workshop, you will:

  • Experience six amazing levels of relaxation to replenish your energy and activate creativity and intuition using pratyahara (sensory withdrawal)
  • Clear out useless habits, bringing about positive and permanent changes in your personality and life by using sankalpa (self-selected resolve)
  • Boost the immune system, regulate blood pressure, decrease pain, and improve other health conditions
  • Improve memory and concentration, and relieve anxiety and depression with regular practice of Yoga Nidra
  • Feel truly refreshed: One hour of Yoga Nidra practice is equal to four hours of sleep

Live sessions with Julie on Thursdays from 7–9:15 pm ET.

You will have access to the video recordings for 8 weeks after the program ends, until March 23, 2023.

In addition, you will have access to recordings of Integral Yoga Hatha classes and access to an online social community to connect and communicate with other participants about this course.

This workshop is part of the 40-hour Yoga Nidra Training and Certification LEVEL 1 – Online, a deeper study and practice of Yoga Nidra, on Thursdays and Saturdays, Jan. 5–28.
