What Past Students Say

Freedom and Limitlessness

"Thank you so much for this excellent yoga nidra training. I feel like this is where I belong. It is bringing my clients to a place of freedom and limitlessness. I personally listen to your Nidra recordings every day."

Linda
Yoga Therapist
Rich in Content

"The course was so rich in content and I love that I can go back and do the classes over and over again! I, like so many others have experienced trauma in my life and the healing power of Yoga Nidra to resolve these patterns is significant!"

Barbara
Yoga Teacher
Deeper & Eye Opening

"This has been such an eye opening training for me! I was almost ready to completely break up with yoga - or at least yogaland - and I see now, rather than running away, I needed to actually dive in deeper and understand the history, wisdom, and traditions of yoga at a deeper level. And something beyond reading! I am excited to do more with you. Daily Yoga Nidra time has certainly helped me as there so much is changing and shifting around me. I feel steady. Thank you!"

Kerry
Yoga Teacher
Resonating Deeply

"I absolutely adore these teachings and your approach Kaya. They resonate deeply with me and stay with me. I love to revisit my notes and the recordings. I love that you keep in touch with students and that your teachings are relevant and timely. And it makes me think. I really appreciate the bonus classes that you invite us into, your writings and recommendations. You have been a steady, unflickering flame of light in these often overcast and blustery days of late. Thank you."

Cat
Yoga Teacher
Game Changer

"I’ve now been able to create yoga nidra scripts with a truly deep understanding of yoga Nidra that can help others. With the practice & more therapeutic approach to Shavasana, students have told me they have never felt such relaxation in that pose before, that it’s a game changer for them. Kaya is truly so knowledgeable and passionate about sharing and passing on her knowledge to others. Personally, I’ve gained a greater understanding of the importance for sleep and yoga nidra myself and have already felt the improvements of using the Yoga nidra recordings in my mood, rejuvenation and decision-making. I’m excited to continue to use what I learned to help more people."

Katelyn
Yoga Teacher
Complex Teachings Made Clear

"Thank you Kaya for such a wonderful and inspiring journey through Yoga Nidra! I found that each of your classes gave me so much to contemplate and that you explained such complicated material in a very clear way. I appreciate that you provided so much experience, foundation and theory before we looked at technique. I could also tell how much care you put into your presentations and found the images you used so helpful as well as powerful. I can't wait to keep developing my understanding and experience of Yoga Nidra!"

Anna-Claire
Learning So Much

"Thank you so much for everything! I am learning so much from you and love the way you teach. So glad I stumbled across your offerings!"

Flora
Yoga Teacher
Theory + Direct Experience

"Oh my goodness! Kaya... this is amazing! Seriously, I’m so grateful for the time you put into all this. Wow! This was such a lovely course. I love how much theory I learnt from you, and the focus you put on actually experiencing what we are learning. I know I keep saying it but I’m really grateful, thank you!"

Delicia
Yoga Therapist
Confident to develop scripts

"A big thank you for this whole offering! I loved this process and the connection to the Yoga Nidrā practice and with other teachers again so much. It’s been amazing to feel confident and free enough to develop my own scripts."

Emma
Yoga Teacher
More Value than My 200 Hour

"Thank you for creating this program and offering so much to your students. I’m so thankful for the opportunity to study with you. This course truly opened my eyes to so much in the yoga world that was never truly explained to me. I have honestly found more value in this one program than most of what I learned in my 200 hour training. I can't convey the value I get from being able to do this at my own pace. Much love and respect for you Kaya, thank you!"

Tina
Yoga Teacher
Rich, Classical & Feminine

"In this program - there was a sense of richness and femininity to it I also liked that it was classical and hadn’t been westernized, homogenized and trademarked. I’ve taken two Yoga Nidra programs, and Kaya’s was the best."

Nyk
Yoga Therapist & Teacher Trainer
Transforming my Whole Practice

"I learned so much about the value of sleep, and how it was affecting issues in my life, body, and mind. I gained new insight into the whole purpose of yoga, and it is changing my personal practice towards a more soothing and rejuvenating practice. It's the first time the whole concept of Shavasana has been thoroughly explained to me, and has truly changed my relationship with the practice. I’ve learned a whole new skill set to offer my students that will help them heal, and a fresh perspective when asked about the benefits and true purpose of yoga."

Sage
Yoga Teacher
Strength as a Teacher

"I have a strong preference for real teachers and real fellow-students. I love Kaya in-person, but it is remarkable that her strengths as a teacher come through in the online setting when so many do not."

Ron
Yoga Teacher
Gained confidence and ease

"I gained practice and confidence in the scripting and delivery of Yoga Nidra. I am now able to end each class with a Yoga Nidra with ease. Kaya’s teachings are always deep, thorough and well thought out. She is an expert at delivering and she is a joy to study with."

    Note from kaya

    Yoga Nidra is simultaneously advanced and accessible. It is a tool that can simply and effectively address the most complex of concerns without the teacher going outside of their scope. 

    No matter what happens in a guided awareness session, it is beneficial and gently opens the doorway to the profound experience of the conscious deep sleep state.

     

    Love, Kaya

    All classes are taught live, for that true, “chest-to-chest” experience. You really feel it, even if you can’t attend live! The program is offered live each Spring, and available on-demand shortly thereafter. 

    Joining live is simple. All classes are held on Zoom. You join with one click from a mobile device or a computer. You’ll need an internet connection to join live or watch/listen later.

    You’ll receive weekly emails & reminders to join the zoom classroom and access the recording.  A few hours before each class you’ll receive a “Click to Join” email. You can also click to join from right inside the program site.

    All recordings will be found for participants when you login at www.yogawithkaya.com/login 

    In keeping with the Vedic tradition style of teaching, there is little to no required preparation or reading. I follow my teachers’ approach in unfolding the teachings in real time in relationship with students. Once you register for the program you’ll find suggested optional texts, because students usually ask. As each week unfolds there may be enriching articles, videos and interviews following each lesson, but I suggest you experience coming to the lessons with an empty cup!
     

    Plan 2 hours. Each lesson is about 90 minutes of lecture + 30 min Q&A

    If you’re trying to minimize screen time, just listen as an audio course. The video is there to make it a little more engaging for people who are more visual.

    During Live Rounds: Each class includes about 30 min of live Q&A. You can also send Qs to Kaya inside the portal or in our online forum!
