ParaYoga Nidra is the sublime science of complete relaxation. But, it is more than that. Rooted in a vast body of knowledge, ParaYoga Nidra has five different aims or outcomes. Depending upon which one of these five you wish to achieve, the approach changes. On the most basic level, ParaYoga Nidra is a comprehensive method for maximizing health and well being. On a deeper level, it is a profoundly spiritual practice and somewhere in between, it is one of the most profound and accessible ways to positively reshape the unconscious. In this master training, we outline several of the aims of nidra as well as the theory of sankalpa––how you bring thought into form. We then relate this to the concept of dharma and engage some specific exercises to help you achieve yours.

In addition, we delve into ParaYoga Nidra in light of the timeless teachings of the Mandukya Upanishad, which explains the three states of consciousness: waking, dreaming and sleeping. This scripture provides sublime insights into the practice of ParaYoga Nidra and the process of achieving the “4th state“––transcending all the other states, and revealing the sublime experience of ParaYoga Nidra.

Over the 5 days of this training, you can expect to be fully immersed in this profound tantric practice with 12-14 Nidra practices. We will draw on the wisdom of the koshas to inform both your teaching and practice as well as your life off the mat. Each day will include joint exercises and subtle movement practices to prepare you for ParaYoga Nidra. As this practice involves total relaxation on the floor, you will need to ensure that you are warm and comfortable lying down for extended periods. Along with your mat, consider bringing a thicker mat or extra padding to lie on, a small pillow for your head, etc.

We are honoured that Yogarupa has agreed to share his teachings at Yogacampus once again following his sold out course last year.

What students are saying about Yogarupa’s Yoga Nidra training:

Yoga Nidra is deeply transformational. When the constrictions of breath and body and the stains of the mind dissolve, we can see clearly. When the source of suffering is revealed by our Soul and higher mind, we can plant the seeds of new ideas in the fertile field of consciousness. At the most elemental, Yoga Nidra relaxes and heals. At its most profound, you will be awakened to the fourth dimension, Turiya. Between those two, Yoga Nidra, when administered skilfully, serves as a tool to change unhelpful mental patterns and wrong self-perception and even heal the effects of trauma. Transformation is gradual but sometimes there are sudden leaps…I felt myself bursting out of the golden egg as a new person.“ ––Inge

This training has been profound for me on a healing level, I have had so many breakthroughs and deep insights. I’m very grateful that I came into this training with a background in yoga as that depth allowed me to access the layers I did. Recognizing, seeing and feeling “the stain” was revolutionary for me––I’m so excited to work with my new sankalpas, it’s going to transform everything! I could never have arrived there on my own!” ––Lindsay

Any senior yoga teacher must graduate to the practice and understanding of Yoga Nidra. Rod teaches from the voices of the ancient teachers, bringing a rich tradition to life.” ––Jeanne
