"For decades we have guided the shavasana practices and yoga nidra in sessions where the teacher does the ‘recital’ and others listen and follow. But we have not TAUGHT the procedures.”
— Swami Veda Bharati
Guided practices done in shavasana will be taught in proper sequence, leading to different stages of Yoga Nidra.
Guided by advanced teachers, some of whom have been practicing for over 45 years.
There will be a Silence, Shavasana Practices and Yoga Nidra Retreat 22nd March - 5th April 2015 at Swami Rama Sadhaka Grama in Rishikesh, India. The purpose of this retreat is for participants to learn the procedures.
Printouts will be given for each segment taught. Each segment will be guided separately and then students will practice that segment. There will be homework practice between lessons.
