Sleep Meditation

Rest, Recharge and Recreate Your Life from the Inside Out

What is the purpose of being human? Why do our emotions, thoughts and habits dominate us? How can we restore and rejuvenate the body to its vital, rested and healthful state?

You are invited to experience profound healing and restoration of the body’s reserves and return to life feeling energized, detoxified, and rejuvenated. Release old baggage and bring clarity and insight to your life. Re-write and re-create your life from the deepest states of meditative relaxation.

Utilizing the practice of I AM Yoga Nidra™ this Immersion provides a unique and transformative map to life mastery where we lay out the ancient spiritual foundations of Yoga Nidra including the Kleshas, Koshas, Turiya and the science behind the brainwaves to understand how our lost connection to essential wholeness results in stress, living in unconscious repetitive patterns, and robs us of our health, vitality and fullest potential. As a result of an anxious mind and tired body, conditions such as dis-ease, depression, stress, anxiety, and sleep problems set in.


We can no longer access our highest self-expression and greater purpose. Discover how to free yourself and consciously create your experience of life.

How Do Yoga Nidra Practices Benefit Depression and Anxiety?

For those who are often troubled with endless thoughts, anxiety, or depression it can be challenging to sit in peace and quiet. But because Yoga Nidra is guided with techniques that give the mind things to do, it gives a natural point of concentration to the mind. As the mind is focused, it becomes calm and the nervous system can begin to relax.

Yoga Nidra: The Art of Transformational Sleep

It is strongly recommended for this book be read prior to or during Yoga Therapy I. It may be purchased as a paperback, kindle and audio book (Click Here)

  • 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.
