A Weekend Intensive
sponsored by BLUE JAY YOGA, Salt Lake City, Utah

  • Friday 9/7 - 6:00-8:30

  • Saturday & Sunday 9/8 & 9/9 - 9:00-4:30


Yoga Nidra is a systematic approach to guided relaxation that leads to a profound release of mental and physical tension. Accessible to virtually anyone, it is among the most powerful of yogic tools for healing and transformation. As the body lets go of deeply held tensions, the psyche begins to unwind and habitual patterns of thought and behavior can be shifted and even erased. In this course, we will explore the nature of yoga nidra and how to apply it within your own practice, as well as how to incorporate it into your teaching.
