Yoga Nidra Advanced Training with Kamini Desai, Ph.D.
This Advanced Yoga Nidra Training builds on and deepens the understanding gained in Yoga Nidra Professional Training. Using scriptural teachings of the Upanishads, the Yoga Sutras, and unique insights from our Lineage, we will explore the original teachings of Yoga Nidra as an esoteric and ancient mystical practice. You will understand more about the anatomy of the koshas and how they relate to the wisdom body, the ego and the Self.
New techniques for yourself and your students will include new body rotation sequences, awareness of space inside and outside the body, listening with the body, techniques to gain control over the involuntary nervous system, kosha experiences and prana/mother divine yoga nidra. You will also learn basics of yoga nidra as a form of yoga therapy; using protocols to aid those seeking emotional integration and solutions for trauma, PTSD and other forms of energetic blockages.
We will have a more in-depth look at visualizations and image techniques — understanding how they relate to the mental and wisdom body, when to use them, and how to deliver them so they do not bring in the thinking mind. Finally, you will receive not only the advanced deck of yoga nidra cards, but a unique yoga nidra deck for kids! You will learn how to be creative in delivering yoga nidra to kids and how to give to various age groups.
Some specific topics we will be exploring are:
• Yoga nidra as a therapeutic yoga technique for emotional integration and guidance
• The latest scientific research
• How to best bring yoga nidra to kids
• Two practices of yoga nidra per day
• Integral daily silent time to deepen and open to Self

The Amrit Yoga Institute is located in Salt Springs, Florida, amid the tranquil beauty of the Ocala National Forest on Lake Kerr, a spring-fed lake of nearly 3,000 acres. Beneath a canopy of towering Live Oaks, the six-acre campus features lush tropical gardens, stone decks and walkway, and a peaceful sand beach. The property includes a Main House, Lodge, two small cabins and the new Ayurveda Center, to accommodate our offices, programs, and guests. The food we serve is not only vegetarian and organic, most is from a local farm. This secluded haven offers the ideal setting for a retreat of self-discovery and exploration of life’s mysteries, away from the distractions of day-to-day life. Here you can immerse yourself in a supportive, nurturing environment, and emerge enriched and transformed. Dedicated to serving and awakening the highest consciousness within all, the purpose of our campus is to provide a sacred space where you can explore the deeper meaning of life, and reach out to experience new levels of freedom in body, mind and spirit.
