Rest, Recharge and Recreate Your Life from the Inside Out
What is the purpose of being human? Why do our emotions, thoughts and habits dominate us? How can we restore and rejuvenate the body to its vital, rested and healthful state?
You are invited to experience profound healing and restoration of the body’s reserves and return to life feeling energized, detoxified, and rejuvenated. Release old baggage and bring clarity and insight to your life. Re-write and re-create your life from the deepest states of meditative relaxation.
Utilizing the practice of I AM Yoga Nidra™ this Immersion provides a unique and transformative map to life mastery where we lay out the ancient spiritual foundations of Yoga Nidra including the Kleshas, Koshas, Turiya and the science behind the brainwaves to understand how our lost connection to essential wholeness results in stress, living in unconscious repetitive patterns, and robs us of our health, vitality and fullest potential. As a result of an anxious mind and tired body, conditions such as dis-ease, depression, stress, anxiety, and sleep problems set in. We can no longer access our highest self-expression and greater purpose. Discover how to free yourself and consciously create your experience of life.

The Highest Quality Sleep Meditation Training
How Do Yoga Nidra Practices Benefit Depression and Anxiety?
For those who are often troubled with endless thoughts, anxiety, or depression it can be challenging to sit in peace and quiet. But because Yoga Nidra is guided with techniques that give the mind things to do, it gives a natural point of concentration to the mind. As the mind is focused, it becomes calm and the nervous system can begin to relax.
