Yoga Nidra is such effective technique, not only for physical or mental relaxation but also for preparing the mind for the higher yogic discipline.
Learn this effective technique at our short course on Yoga Nidra with Swami Mutkibodhanada. Swami Muktibodhananda started her yoga journey in 1972.  She later studied under the direct guidance of Paramahansa Swami Satyananda for 10 years in India.
Due to popular demand we have added a NEW part-time yoga teacher training course this year. Last week, Congressman Tim Ryan (D-OH) visited the first test site of the iRest program, at the Sepulveda VA hospital in Los Angeles, where the second of two eight-week runs of the protocol are just finishing up. Kelly Boys, who administered the iRest training to staff at the Sepulveda VA, says that the practice takes people into a deep state of relaxation in which they feel more connected to themselves, and experience feelings of peace and love. Baker says the Sepulveda VA is already planning to add more iRest courses for veterans, and is considering new ways to apply the practice, such as working with newly returning veterans in the primary care clinics. A new study finds that people who practice restorative yoga can lose significant amounts of weight. In honor of National Yoga Month, expand your repertoire with these four types of yoga that can complement your regular practice. July 12, 2012 By Steph Leave a Comment Maybe you have heard of Yoga Nidra and aren’t quite sure of what it is.

Yoga Nidra is a powerful meditation technique where the mind remains conscious during the normally “unconscious” state associated with deep sleep. Practiced in the lying position, it is one of the most popular yoga meditation techniques because it induces a profoundly deep state of rest.
As it is practiced today, Yoga Nidra is a technique that carries awareness deep into you, layer by layer.
Yoga Nidra takes your awareness deep into parts of you that you normally cannot access because of tensions. As we go through life, all experiences we have plant somewhere in both our physical body as well as our unconscious.
The practice of Yoga Nidra helps to reduce unconscious tension and patterns that often stand in our way of us fulfilling our intentions and goals. To learn more about Yoga Nidra and its practice check out these books and cd’s below! Relax and unwind with the powerful technique ‘Yoga Nidra.’ Yoga Nidra is a systematic method of inducing complete mental, emotional and physical relaxation.
During this time she authored and had published ‘Swara Yoga, the Tantric Science of Brain Breathing’  and Commentaries on ‘Hatha Yoga Pradipika, the Light on Hatha Yoga’. The iRest technique further puts special emphasis on helping to resolve pain and suffering through intention-setting, breath and energy awareness, neutralization of negative beliefs and emotions, and guidance to experience peace and well-being.

You systematically relax each part of your physical body and then move your awareness to the more subtle layers, your emotions and deeper mind, in order to relax those parts. These experiences can cause blocks in our lives and may manifest as disease, chronic pain, tightness, anxiety, depression, or a feeling of fear or being “stuck”. It is also a pratyahara-technique – the mind is in a state between wakefulness and sleep, in a state of conscious sleep. Research also indicates that Yoga Nidra can be used as a therapeutic technique to cure psychological disorders like anxiety, depression, insomnia, and psychosomatic diseases. Swami Mukti is a Yogacharya, master of yoga, and enjoys teaching the ancient yoga practices to a modern day audience. Yoga Nidra means “yogic sleep” or “sleep with awareness” the practice leads you into a full-body relaxation and a deep meditative state of consciousness. This practice has a deep transforming impact and is a highly effective method for inducing complete physical, mental and emotional relaxation.The essence of Yoga Nidra lies with the sankalpa (resolve).
