ParaYoga Nidra: Enlightened Sleep

“Any senior yoga teacher must graduate to the practice and understanding of ParaYoga Nidra. Rod teaches from the voices of the ancient teachers, bringing a rich tradition to life.” ––Jeanne Heileman

The ParaYoga Nidra Certification Program is designed for those students who would like to be able to become certified to teach and call their classes ParaYoga Nidra®.

ParaYoga Nidra is the sublime science of enlightened sleep, rooted in a vast body of knowledge and ancient tradition. ParaYoga Nidra has five distinct aims or outcomes, thus, the template for the practice changes depending upon which one of these five you wish to achieve. On the most basic level, ParaYoga Nidra is a comprehensive method for maximizing health and well being. On a deeper level, it is a profoundly spiritual practice and somewhere in between, it is one of the most profound and accessible ways to positively reshape the unconscious.

ParaYoga Nidra is a potent modality for:

  • Healing
  • Transformation
  • Sankalpa
  • Transcendence
  • Accessing the timeless wisdom of the sages––the most subtle application of yoga nidra
