Michele Loew

Join us at Menla for this deep dive into the depths of Yoga Nidra, the practice of sleeping with awareness, or enlightened sleep. Michele Loew has been practicing Yoga Nidra for 25 years, and in this comprehensive training we look into this inner science and the ways it can be practiced and shared to access different states of consciousness and ultimately pure awareness. A sister science to the Tibetan Dream & Clearlight sleep practices, this practice can be done as an entry way into those practices, or vehicle to navigate all four of the nocturnal practices.Students that are purchasing this course will have access to Michele’s 100 hr online Nidra School with Yoga Nidra practices and comprehensive teachings on the science of Yoga Nidra. For those students interested in Yoga Alliance Certification for continuing education or credit towards a 200 hr teacher training certification, this is available with the completion of all materials, homework and quizzes.Our in person retreat will include 3 Yoga Nidras daily, meditations, light stretching and yoga practices to prepare the body, discussions, contemplations, and teachings on this ancient tradition of deep healing and rest.This course includes the study of Yoga Nidra’s effects on the physical body and mind:- the reduction of stress and disease- the healing power of the practice- the science of sleep, comparative neuroscience and studies on Yoga Nidra- the use of intention for transformation-becoming a powerful creator sourced by intuitive wisdom.- clearing obstacles, mental obscurations in order to discover the natural luminous mind.- working with trauma, and Yoga Nidra for PTSD*We will also learn how to create and share intelligent and affective Yoga Nidras for others.This is the page to register to attend in person at Menla, just click Register Now above.
