Program Description

A Sound Bath is a dreamy experience where tuning forks, Tibetan singing bowls, crystal bowls, gongs, chimes, shakers, and other instruments are played intuitively. A Sound Bath promotes deep relaxation and peace. It brings a contemplative inner awareness of the now and helps to open the body’s energetic system. Enjoy and learn to create a transformative Sound Bath experience.

Yoga Nidra is the practice of conscious deep sleep. In Yoga Nidra, we learn how to shed muscular, emotional and mental tensions. Muscular tensions arise from the body, the nervous system and through endocrine imbalance. Emotional tensions arise from the duality of emotions such as love/hate, joy/sadness, success/failure, which we are not able to express freely. Mental tension arises from excessive mental activity. Some of the techniques used to cleanse these tensions include body scanning, concentration on different sounds, opposite sensations, rapid imagery and visualization. Through the practice of Yoga Nidra, we cleanse physical, emotional and mental tensions.

This training is part of Yandara’s 300-hr advanced program. It is ideal for those wanting to advance their yoga teaching career and certification and also for those who want to deepen their own personal practice. 

The lead teacher for this module is Mercy Ananda (Sound Healer & Mantra Musician) together with Amber Young and the rest of our inspiring Yandara crew.
