What Nectar of Nidrā Students Say

I just wanted to thank you for these teachings, especially on the sankalpa teachings and experiential work. I’ve studied with many eminent yoga teachers and learned these things from them in a very intellectual way. But now I but have found such a different 'knowness’ from your ability to transform scriptures and teaching into the lived experience. I found the examples in section two of you taking people through the sankalpa process so helpful. I thought I had it pegged, but realized the understanding hadn’t quite totally surfaced once I listened the process. This is really how it is done.
Diane, Yoga Teacher
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
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 more soothing and rejuvenating. 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
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, Podcaster, Teacher Mentor
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, Yoga Practitioner
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
Such an eye opening training! 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 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. Thank you!
Kerry, Yoga Teacher
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!

Nectar of Nidrā


A Note from Kaya

Mystical sleep is simultaneously accessible & advanced.  This sleep of yoga can simply and effectively address the most complex of concerns in a loving, gentle way that opens whatever doorway the student is ready for. There is no forcing, no manipulating…. in the techniques we use here there is simply opening the doorway for the student. 

Sharing yoga nidrā with others itself is a path of practice in deep service to healing, transformation and the yogic journey. 

From relaxation to release of karmic patterns to inner awakening a guided awareness session gently opens multiple doorways to the profound landscape of the conscious divine sleep.

Love, Kaya


Yes. Kaya just recorded Nectar of Nidra in January – February 2024. So, the program is self-paced. Dont worry. It feels LIVE. It’s very engaging. And you can still send Qs in for Kaya to respond to.

Once you join, you’ll have opportunity for live interaction inside our online forum just for Nidra students. 

This is a training in how to guide others which results in a “certification”. . You’ll have 30 hours of training and be really well equipped. Not just with the purpose, philosophy and technique but also fitting it in with other offerings and even a bit on marketing, so people can benefit from your offering. Nectar of Nidrā is a required component of yoga certifications with Kaya but can be attended as a stand-alone module training.
