Yoga Nidra for Complete Relaxation and Stress Relief – Online

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

March 9 - 30, 2021

Tuesdays: Mar. 9, 16, 23, and 30

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.

You will learn progressive relaxation skills, specialized breathing techniques, guided imagery, mindfulness to easily create a deep meditative state, and 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.

  • 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
  • Regular practice can improve memory, concentration, and relieve anxiety and depression
  • Feel truly refreshed: One hour of Yoga Nidra practice is equal to four hours of sleep

Live sessions with Julie on Tuesdays at 7–9 pm ET.

You will have access to the video recordings for 8 weeks after the program ends, until May 25.

In addition, you will have access to the Ashram’s Live Hatha Yoga classes at 5 pm ET and access to an online social community to connect and communicate with other participants about this course.

Testimonials

Julie was an outstanding instructor. I gained so much from her varied techniques and was able to reach sustained deep meditative states for the first time. A great experience. — Lee Helfrich

Julie is very knowledgeable and kind. Her program complemented her book beautifully and each made the other that much more valuable. — Nieda Lynn Tice Palmer

Excellent. The Yoga Nidra program was very well done. I got more out of it than I expected. I will continue the practice—that is where the real value lies, otherwise, it was just for the weekend and then gone. I was able to experience the same lightness I find in deep meditation (conscious dreamlike state). Julie was very detailed and to the point. Also, the personal examples and experiences of others (sharing) brought all the aspects together. — Past Participant
