Create the Life of your Dreams

Yoga Nidra is a process of relaxation. A technique to show us how letting go on a physical and emotional level allows us to dive into those areas within us that remain unexplored.

Yoga Nidra is a path to the state of enlightenment reached by many masters. Its secrets are handed down orally and written in scriptures. Since we depend so much on our little-known logics and our limited knowledge, we don’t realize that there is more to this universe and its dimensions.
To reach those dimensions we need to learn how to go deeper in and leave the known world behind us. This will allow us to go deeper into these realms, which are unknown to most of us. Yoga Nidra is a process that comes easily to anyone, regardless age or IQ, and shows us the lesser know territories of our existence.

What you will learn


Higher stages of Raja Yoga

Yoga Nidra’s ultimate purpose is to take you deep into a state where you are fully unified with your inner being. In this process, the conscious mind withdraws itself so that the subconscious mind comes to the forefront. This is where the real opportunity lies in Yoga Nidra. Yoga Nidra resides in the higher stages of Raja Yoga and reaching it can be very difficult through other practices.

The Source of Yoga Nidra

The Sanskrit word Yoganidrā is composed of two words, “yoga” and “nidrā ” meaning yoga and sleep. It is an ancient technique derived from an old Tantric technique of Nyasa which kept developing through centuries. Today, it has become a practice used across many contemporary yoga styles.


Affect your Brain & Body

Together, we will examine how Yoga Nidra can affect your brain and body, as well as the benefits you can get out of this profound practice. With a combination of science and research, the ancient wisdom of yoga and our experience, we will help you understand how Yoga Nidra can impact:


  • Reduction of stress
  • Changing habits
  • Achieving freedom from addictions
  • Handling trauma, depression and anxiety
  • Healing physical and mental ailments
  • Training skills, such as learning a language

Facilitating transformation

This course trains you on how to guide others in Yoga Nidra, whilst facilitating your own transformation. Yoga Nidra accesses your sub and unconscious mind, and it gives you the formula to design on your own universe.

Other than that, mastering Yoga Nidra will give you complete understanding of how you are the designer of your own world
