For everyone, especially Yoga teachers and health professionals

Gain the tools and resources needed to lead others effectively in the practice of Yoga Nidra, or “yogic sleep”. Yoga Nidra is a comprehensive practice for going far beyond deep relaxation to a place of natural peace and quiet that is tremendously healing for the body, mind, and spirit.

In Yoga Nidra Training and Certification Level 2, you will deepen your understanding of Yoga Nidra’s purpose, principles, techniques, and delivery. Learn advanced skills and variations in leading relaxation techniques, breath-work, guided imagery, mindfulness, and other mind-body techniques.

Backed by contemporary science, studies have shown that Yoga Nidra can boost the immune system, lower blood pressure, decrease pain, and improve other health conditions. Regular practice can improve memory, concentration, and relieve anxiety and depression.

During this Level 2 training, you will:

  • Design and write your own teaching scripts
  • Learn how to adapt Yoga Nidra for specific needs, such as stress management, physical health concerns, mental and emotional well-being, behavior changes, and for various age groups and settings
  • Use mudras (hand gestures) to enhance Yoga Nidra
  • Learn practical tips on designing, marketing, implementing, and evaluating Yoga Nidra workshops

Upon completion of Level 2 training, graduates will be able to teach Yoga Nidra in groups and private settings. Participants will receive a certificate upon completion of the training and will fully understand the advanced principles and practices of Yoga Nidra and its benefits.

Julie is uniquely qualified to show you how to write your own scripts. By writing Yoga Nidra Meditations: 24 Scripts for True Relaxation, she worked with the leading Yoga Nidra experts worldwide. This gave her a comprehensive perspective on all the major Yoga Nidra methods available and how to apply them in a wide range of settings, purposes, and populations. You will confidently write scripts based on the spirit of classical Yoga and backed by modern, mind-body science.
