Yoga Nidra is a powerful meditation technique based on deep body and mind relaxation.
Yoga Nidra brings the practitioner into the state known as yogic or conscious sleep, which is the state between wakefulness and sleep.
The practice of yoga Nidra is suitable for everyone regardless of age and physical condition.
The course is open to yoga teachers and all who nourish interest and want to learn this style of yoga.
Nevertheless, familiarity with meditation and yoga is necessary to gain a satisfactory experience.
The training aims to be a comprehensive experience to achieve new knowledge and reconnect with oneself and others.
This course offers a profound inner journey into oneself and the core of one’s belief system.
It provides the full spectrum of tools to master the practice of yoga Nidra and lead sessions with absolute confidence in any surroundings.
Moreover, the course explains the nervous system’s functioning and trauma’s dynamic. It focuses on how trauma affects the human brain and behaviors.
The course also explains the relevance of learning and adopting a trauma-informed approach for modern yoga teachers. It provides all guidelines and practical instruments to face and handle students and situations in a yoga class and life.
Yoga Alliance US accredits the course, and the practitioners receive the YACEP certificate at completion.
The retreat location is Borgo degli Aranci, a beautifully restored group of farmhouses set amongst organic orange groves 40 km away from Catania.

We will serve vegetarian and vegan brunch and dinner using only seasonal and local products.
The teacher of this training is Alida.

We look forward to welcoming you to Sicily!
