Yoga Nidra Intensive (Level I & II) Course

Experience the power of Yoga Nidra at the intensive workshop  taking place at the Swami Krishnananda Hatha Yoga Shala, Mysore. You'll spend 10 days being transported to a world of peace, relaxation and bliss.

The workshop will be led by Yogacharya Dr. K. Ashutosh (MBBS, PGDY, NDDY, Ph.D (Yoga)), a disciple of Swami Krishnananda, Divine Life Society, Sivananda Ashram, Rishikesh. He will be assisted by Yoga Shiromani Mrs. Kadambari, World Champion Artistic Yoga.

Yoga nidra is one of the practices of pratyahara where the awareness is internalized. Literally, yoga nidra means 'psychic sleep' i.e. sleep with full awareness. In the practice of yoga nidra the body sleeps but the mind remains awake listening to the instructions. In psychology, the state achieved in yoga nidra is termed the hypnogogic state, a state between sleep and wakefulness. Yoga nidra has its origin in the ancient tantric practice called nyasa. Swami Satyananda Saraswati  adapted and presented the practice of yoga nidra to the world in a systematic and scientific way  in the 1960s.

If you want to transform your life pattern, that can be done by the sankalpa (RESOLVE) made in yoga nidra. If there is a negative tendency or habit in your life and you want to correct it, that can be done by a positive sankalpa.

Sankalpa means willpower. Sankalpa is a seed, which you create and then sow in the bed of your mind. When the mind is clear, then the sankalpa grows very well. If you first prepare the bed with fertilizer and manure, remove the weeds and grass, and then plant the seed, it will grow better. In the same way, you have the mind and you have an idea. If you prepare your mind and then sow the seed, the idea, properly, then it will grow in your life and become willpower.
