The Transformative Power of Yoga Nidra

Yoga Nidra, known as योग निद्रा in Sanskrit, originates from the term 'Yogic Sleep' or 'Psychic Sleep.' It involves achieving a particular state of consciousness through the deepest relaxation without drifting into actual sleep. This state of consciousness allows us to ride the delicate boundary between wakefulness and slumber, offering us access to a profoundly receptive state of being. Healing and rejuvenation takes place on all levels. Yoga Nidra's popularity is steadily increasing due to its effectiveness in alleviating pain and chronic stress, and anxiety and depression resulting from past trauma and the pervasive sense of discontentment often associated with the modern lifestyle. 

Jessica Crow is the lead teacher and program director for the CNTRD Yoga Nidra Training

The Mystical Science of Relaxation and Personal Resolve

Practiced regularly, Yoga Nidra allows the practitioner to access a state of relaxation that is so deep and thorough it verges on actual sleep, yet preserves a subtle awareness of surroundings. It is this divergent state of consciousness, hovering between a normal ‘awake’ state and unconscious brain states. Ideally, the brain remains situated for periods of time in a Delta wave state where the nervous system goes through a profound reset.


This training is comprehensive and immersive, including video lectures, a manual with exploration links, audio practice sessions, royalty-free scripts, and a life-long community of like-minded students


Each attendee will receive discounted private live virtual mentorship. This 1-on-1 time is dynamic and personalized. You can use this extra guidance to hone your writing and teaching skills or go further into self-exploration. While in the training you receive half off a 45-minute mentoring call or zoom.


Live virtual Mastermind workshops are held at the beginning of every month via Zoom and all current students in the CNTRD Yoga Nidra as well as CNTRD Meditation Teacher Trainings are welcome to attend for as long as they are taking the training. This is the place to ask bigger questions, practice leading and get peer feedback, discuss writing personalized sessions and creativity in guidance, and bounce ideas off like-minded students with mentor guidance
