Note from kaya

Nectar of Nidrā an in-depth program that I taught for years as part of YTT 200 hour programs, 300 hour programs and 800 hour Yoga Therapy Trainings. In fact, many folks who are not yoga teachers to support themselves and others. 

Yoga Nidrā is that it is the MOST advanced, but accessible yoga practice there is. It offers a  tool that you can use to help people with all kinds of complicated issues, without having to work outside your scope. No matter what happens in a yoga nidrā practice is beneficial, and most importantly, it gently and effectively opens the doorway to the profound experience of the “mass of bliss” that is the experience of conscious deep sleep.
