Day by day, we lay out the ancient spiritual foundations of Yoga Nidra including the Kleshas, Koshas, Karma and Turiya. You’ll learn the science behind the brainwaves and understand how our lost connection to essential wholeness results in stress, living in unconscious repetitive karmic patterns, and robs us of our health, vitality and fullest potential. As a result of an anxious mind and tired body, conditions such as disease, depression, stress, anxiety, and sleep problems set in. We can no longer access our highest self-expression and greater purpose.

Combine the Benefits of Meditation with Deep Relaxation. With our exclusive five-tool approach and in-depth practice of Yoga Nidra, you will experientially empower yourself to reverse this attack and shift these undesirable effects at the causal level.

You will be able to reshape your life with one of the simplest, most profound techniques ever created.
