The I AM Yoga Nidra™ Advanced Training effects a quantum leap into the hidden teachings of the Upanishads, the Yoga Sutras, the origins of Yoga Nidra, as well as rare teachings from our lineage– all of which will allow you to cultivate an even more profound grasp of the influence, scope, and applications of this practice. 

 

You will enhance your knowledge of the Koshas, their functions, and how they can be nourished and strengthened through the practice of Yoga Nidra. Through scriptural study, you will gain a deeper appreciation of the immensity of Yoga Nidra and the place it holds in the 8-limbed Path of Yoga. Receive little-known secrets to provide further clarity on experiences had during Yoga Nidra. Acquire a more thorough comprehension of the Higher and Lower Mind, how the Ego is created, the role it plays in your spiritual journey, and how to unlock the unique power of the Wisdom body to shape and create your life. 

Yoga Therapy III: Program Overview

You will learn the basics of Yoga Nidra as it is applied in Yoga Therapy, using protocols to aid those seeking emotional integration; as well as solutions for grief, trauma, and other forms of energetic blockages.

 

We will take an in-depth look at visualizations and image techniques, understanding how they relate to the Mental and Wisdom Bodies, when to incorporate them, and how to deliver them so they do not activate the Thinking Mind.

Clear Sensory Overload & Keep your Mind Clean

Today we live in a world where our senses are over-stimulated. Our eyes and ears are constantly taking in information day and night. Impressions, images, sounds, tastes and smells must all be processed within the brain. Though we may not recognize it, this constant barrage of input acts as a stressor on the nervous system. Yoga Nidra is the perfect tool to decongest our overburdened senses.

  • What are the origins of this style of Yoga Therapy and what makes it unique?
    This training was developed by Kamini Desai and builds on techniques including Yogassage and Contact Yoga, developed by Ken Scott, Restorative Yoga, Phoenix Rising Yoga Therapy created by Michael Lee, The Wave Work created by Sandra Scherer. The latter two were inspired by the work and teachings of Yogi Amrit Desai, Kamini’s father. This training draws on all these modalities and uniquely combines them to serve the intention of the Integrative Amrit Method (IAM) of Yoga Therapy. This is not therapy, it is a practice of wholly integrating all aspects of the human experience as a part of our spiritual journey. This style of Yoga Therapy is less about symptoms and more about resolving the root cause of those symptoms. By resolving and freeing various accumulated tensions left lingering in the body for variety of reasons, we free the body to heal itself.
  • Is this course appropriate as an introduction to the practice?
    Yes. This is an excellent course for any beginner to learn theory, how to practice Yoga Therapy for yourself and how to get most out of your personal practice.
  • Why does the length of my course differ from others?
    Depending on location, content may be delivered in various formats including one 12 day segment (Yoga Therapy I and II together), 2 separate segments, (sometimes with Yoga Therapy I offered online), or over weekends. It can also be offered in an intensive format. However all curriculum and content is the same.
  • I have physical limitations, but would love to take this course. Is it for me?
    Yes! You can take this course regardless of physical limitations.
  • Can I give a Yoga Therapy session after completing Yoga Therapy I?
    Yoga Therapy I alone does not certify you as a yoga therapist, however it is the first step. Upon completion of BOTH Yoga Therapy I and II you will be certified to give Yoga Therapy sessions. In some cases, such as for Mental Health Professionals or those who already have counseling, yoga therapy or other qualifications, Yoga Therapy I alone can immediately provide a host of touch-free techniques to use with your clients without necessarily needing to go on to Yoga Therapy II.
  • If I have previous experience with Yoga Therapy, can I place out of this course?
    No. This course is foundational and crucial for your success in all other courses that follow. You will find that even if you have learned some of these techniques and concepts elsewhere, the teachings are put together, and combined in a unique way. Keep in mind that the hours completed in Yoga Therapy I, count towards the certification you receive in Yoga Therapy II.
  • Where do I get my manual and program materials?
    Program materials and other class resources are provided digitally through an online platform once you register. You have the option to have these materials printed on your own if you wish.
