I am beyond excited to announce that I will be giving the Yoga Nidra Meditation Teacher Training in Montreal in the coming months! This 25-hour training delves into the ancient practice of Yoga Nidra, a meditation modality that incorporates inquiry, curiosity, total relaxation and intentional focus. Incorporating analytical cognitive practices, guided visualization and sense-awareness, this program brings an array of traditional Yoga Nidra practices together into one system of relaxation and renewal. Yoga Nidra is a powerful tool in managing and healing from anxiety, depression, Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, chronic physical/emotional pain, feelings of insecurity and powerlessness, addiction, and so much more. It is also a simple and effective way of dealing with stress and tension.
Join me for this comprehensive training designed to equip students with the tools required to bring not only others to a place of feeling centered, refreshed and empowered, but to also help themselves in their own lives and practices.
This program includes:
Breakdown and analysis of the sheaths or layers of being (Koshas).
Breakdown and analysis of sense awareness as a micro-meditation.
An exploration into how Yoga Nidra can help manage and alleviate the symptoms of insecurity, anxiety, depression, fear, PTSD and addiction.
Discussion of how to personalize the Yoga Nidra session for clients presenting different needs.
An overview of how neural pathways can be engaged in a new, beneficial way while allowing the body to rest completely.
An overview of energetic anatomy and how what happens in our lives tends to live in our bodies.
Practice sessions between trainees to familiarize themselves with the languaging, pacing and overall practice of offering a Yoga Nidra session.
An analysis and breakdown of the vocabulary of sensations, emotions and thoughts.
Dates: Saturday/Sunday January 18/19 (10h-16h daily) & Saturday/Sunday March 21/22 (10h-16h daily)
Location: Equilibrium Yoga, 4812 Blvd St-Laurent
