Yoga Nidra Training

Weekend Training with Ashley Sharp

Yoga Nidra, often referred to as “yogic sleep”, is a potent practice of guided reclining meditation.

Yoga Nidra systematically addresses physical, emotional and spiritual needs through complete relaxation of the body and mind. The way we think and process emotions on a daily basis can create unhealthy patterns leading to increased anxiety and suffering.

This meditative technique focuses on disarming and dissolving harmful recurring behaviors with mindfulness. Through this process of Yoga Nidra we practice effortless receptivity and deep ease for profound tranquility and healing.

Research has shown that Yoga Nidra effectively reduces:

  1. Depression
  2. Anxiety
  3. Insomnia
  4. Chronic Pain
  5. Chemical Dependency
  6. PTSD
