Experience the Power of Yoga Nidra

Yoga (meaning “union”) Nidra (meaning “sleep”) is a path to that liminal state of being between waking and sleeping. This is where you can systematically release stored physical, emotional, and mental tensions. 

Let go of old beliefs and habits that keep you locked in the past and fearful of the future! Experience your emotions fully, knowing you have unchanging, unshakable ground beneath you — a calm inner presence that allows you to see clearly.

We will move our bodies, clear our minds, and create intentions to live, not from unconscious and automatic past programming but from a new perspective — an aware, deliberate way of being. We will learn how to take this felt sense of being — this new awareness of the True Self — back into our personal lives, family lives, work lives, and love lives.

Return home feeling empowered, free, and clear to create the life of your choosing.

More About the Retreat

What You Will Learn

Together we will cultivate new tools, knowledge, and intentions to help you negotiate those times when you are under stress and feel lost, tired, and confused — when you forget who you are. These tools are important allies on the path to gaining life mastery. The path to meeting and welcoming your challenges and remembering your True Being.

All that is being asked of you is to show up, lie down, and let go. Yoga Nidra will do the rest.

This retreat will allow you to unlock the deep sense of inner peace that has always been with you.

Through this retreat, you will begin to recognize and begin to see the nature of your being which is the underlying nature of your reality. 

What You Will Gain

This retreat will help you release the effects of chronic excess tension, lack of restorative sleep, and the demands of life that have kept you running without time to rest and rejuvenate.

As you begin to rest and restore you'll begin to remember who you are and, from there, create tools for life mastery and past mental, emotional, and physical baggage.

You'll experience greater resilience, inner calm, and self-mastery. 

You'll bring rest into your life and learn to relax anywhere.

You'll improve your sleep quality and reduce anxiety.

You'll feel energized, detoxified, and rejuvenated.

You'll rewrite self-sabotaging patterns.
