Join us in paradise on the Big Island of Hawaii at Kalani Oceanside Resort to experience and become certified in Yoga Nidra, the science of deep relaxation. Yoga means “union.” Nidra means “sleep.” Yoga Nidra is a state between sleep and deep relaxation. It is a systematic method of inducing deep physical, mental, and emotional relaxation. The practice is done while lying down on one’s back. The eyes are closed and the body made completely comfortable. It involves deep relaxation with inner awareness while the instructor leads a guided session with his/her voice. The teacher uses auto-suggestion cues, visualization, and affirmation to create an environment in which healing can occur.

A few of the benefits now being confirmed by the medical field are increased immune function, digestive function, and better sleep. The gifts of Yoga Nidra are the releasing of old habits, fatigue, worry, and stress. Yoga Nidra can be practiced by anyone of any size or shape. This is not a physical exercise but rather a technique for physical rejuvenation, mental relaxation, spiritual growth, and overall wellness. According to yogic thought, unregulated stress is the root of most physical and mental ailments today. The secret of Yoga Nidra (and to better health) lie in its ability to relieve tension and stress at its root and restore a balanced state of mind and a deeply rested body.

This 30-hour course certifies yoga teachers and others to lead Yoga Nidra sessions in both group and individualized settings. Each training day begins with a yoga and pranayama class followed by a guided Yoga Nidra with one of the instructors. Then participants will learn about the philosophy and science behind the age-old practice of Yoga Nidra. Afternoons will be spent exploring the various techniques that comprise a Yoga Nidra session and learning about various types of Yoga Nidras. Students then practice leading a Yoga Nidra daily.

This course is perfect for yoga instructors wanting to gain a new skill to offer to their students and anyone interested in learning about this spiritual, healing practice for his/her own growth and/or to share with others. The incredible Kalani Oceanside Resort, Hawaii Island’s largest retreat center, is the ideal place to dive into the sublime practice of Yoga Nidra supported by an amazing environment. Enjoy the many gems Kalani has to offer, such as their pool, delicious, healthy food and a welcoming, spiritual community. Add on a couple days to this training and explore the wonders of the Puna district of the Big Island including warm pools, Volanoes National Park and so much amazing wildlife all around.
