Yoga Nidra: From deep relaxation to a higher state of awareness

4-day immersion

Yoga Nidra (or Yogic sleep practice) means “sleep with a trace of awareness”. It is a state of mind between wakefulness and dream. During the practice of Nidra, our awareness travels from one layer of consciousness to another.

About the training

The magical journey that expresses the art of relaxation

Yoga Nidra: the magical journey that expresses the art of relaxation and achieving a state of deeper awareness.

What you will learn

During this 4-day immersion, you will explore the connection between the different stages of consciousness and the relationship with the 5 senses. As we move between the several layers of the mind, we explore the characteristics of the 5 elements. As they relate directly with the 5 senses, you will understand both our happiness and suffering.

Moena will integrate the 5 elements into this Yoga Nidra immersion for a deep inner journey. During the practices and the theory we dive into the layers of the mind, where our awareness fluctuates from consciousness to subconsciousness, to deeper consciousness (the most subtle layer where our higher awareness can be revealed).

Every day of this journey, we will focus on a specific element.

In our daily life we get an overload of information and incentives through our senses that cause us to feel tired, stressed, uninspired and even stagnated. Through understanding how Yoga Nidra restores our senses, the inner view gets more clear, we get to balance all the input that constantly comes in through the senses (smell, taste, sight, touch, hearing) which relate with the 5 elements: Earth, Water, Fire, Air & Ether.

These five elements are interdependent transformations of consciousness, matter, and energy. They occur in the outside world but also inside of us. Each perception or sensation we experience is made out of a pattern of these elements.

Bringing the outer and inner world together in balance, helps us to understand our desires, habits and aversions. It brings us in the present moment, which is the expression of living beyond suffering caused by a stored past or trauma.

The Nidra state of deep sleep where our senses, intellect, and mind relax, is where we become free from the concepts of time, space and reason. When this happens, brain activity reduces and the body goes into a healing state.

As the body enters this state of healing, we can purify toxins at a cellular level, refresh the mind and remove luggage from the subconscious.
