Yoga Nidra, “the sleep of the Yogi” is a profound state of relaxation, experienced as a completely effortless state of peace and bliss. Yoga Nidra is typically performed in the position of Savasana lying on your back with cushions and blankets for total comfort, support and relaxation. After a session of Yoga Nidra, you may feel as clear and refreshed as though you’ve enjoyed hours of deep restful sleep. No experience is necessary to participate and begin to receive its benefits.
Research shows that the process of systematic conscious relaxation we experience in Yoga Nidra slows brain waves, reliably stimulates the parasympathetic nervous system response in the body, and reduces the release of stress hormones.
Based in the Tantric technique of “nyasa,” this practice brings together the Indian Yogic methods of alert and relaxed concentration, compassionate observation, and guided visualization to help withdraw the senses from the external world and move the awareness into the deeper layers of the mind to inhabit a bliss state. In this highly receptive and expanded awareness, we can connect with our highest wisdom and meet life’s challenges with greater ease, clarity and compassion.
In this highly receptive and expanded awareness, we can plant the seeds of our most heart-felt intentions in the fertile soil of the mind where they are sure to take root and manifest.

“I thoroughly enjoyed this course! You provided a wealth of information, so much more than a traditional 35 hour training, so thank you…I love that we can continue to access this information and your amazing meditations. The training was recommended to me by a fellow teacher, so I will continue to spread the word.”
“I highly recommend this program to anyone looking to expand their knowledge, not only of the human body, but the spiritual approaches to our dynamic and sacred practice. Sagel’s passion and wisdom are amazing. So inspiring!”
“Thank you for a truly lovely training. I received more than I hoped for. I’ve been practicing Yoga Nidra fairly regularly, so I thought I had a good foundation for the course (in addition to my 200hr yoga teacher training). But this training gave me so much knowledge of the practice, its history, and ability to really explore Yoga Nidra in my body."
"I found the lectures interesting and easy to follow. Thanks for making these teachings accessible and thanks for the useful tools we now have. I hope my Nidra practice helps to keep me healthy and centered and look forward to going ever deeper into relaxation and receptivity as I practice more."
“I can’t thank you enough for putting your Online Yoga Nidra Teacher Training together. I loved that I was able to dive in and step back when I needed to. It really allowed me to focus on the material and stay present.”
"This program was more than a traditional training on “how to teach yoga”, because it addressed the type of world we are living in, and how Nidra is greatly needed. This course made me appreciate Yoga Nidra even more, and also made me more committed to teaching it to others.”
"Thank you for the online Yoga Nidra training. My husband and I have done the 7-day challenge and are continuing regular practice thanks to this program. I look forward to doing the meditations over and over."
"I would recommend this training for sure! It is very well informed, your voice is so soothing, and I really appreciate the format of going at your own pace. This was a very meaningful, moving, expansive, insightful, heart-loving training for me, thank you."
"This is truly a wonderful training! Sagel is so knowledgeable, you come away with a deep understanding of the practice and tradition. I also love that I can always refer back to any part of the training for review. I am so glad I took this training last year and now share this transformative practice with classes. Thank you, Sagel, for sharing your knowledge and gift!!!"
