Yoga Nidra, Basic Breathing Methods and Restorative Yoga are key practices to equip aspirants and practitioners with yogic skills and techniques for self support, as well as for clients and/or students.  The methods taught in the training will assist in the release of deep muscular, mental and emotional tension, inducing calmness and clarity for a range of life and health situations.

Yoga Nidra
Yoga Nidra is a state of being in which the mind lets go of the external world and turns inwards giving the senses a deep rest from the activities of contemporary society.  The mind is gradually trained to connect into tranquility effortlessly.  Yoga Nidra systematically releases tension experienced in the muscles, the breath, and the nervous system.  Ultimately the practice works directly on the mind to release impressions from the past and anxieties about the future.

Basic Breathing Methods and Restorative Yoga
The benefits of Basic Breathing Methods and Restorative Yoga include the dismantling of chronic tension patterns, enhanced immune function, effective cellular respiration, reduced hypertension in the cardiovascular system, reduced mental and emotional tension, a body-mind returned to a natural state of ease and equilibrium.
