From the first moment I experienced Yoga Nidra my perspective shifted….

As more and more students are discovering, the practice of Yoga Nidra has the power to alter your life. Not only does it bring balance, ease and systemic relaxation; it connects you to your true nature - unhindered by the ceaseless activity of the distracted mind. So rarely do we get to simply experience consciousness - without the endless mental chatter that mark our days. Yoga Nidra is a journey to that space of still and silence. You need only lay down comfortably, listen to the guidance, be aware of the experience, and all of a sudden you’re in a place of depth and calm that even regular nightly sleep cannot reveal. I have incredible reverence for this deep, healing, beautiful practice. It’s truly the honor of my life to be able to share it with so many others.

After years of study, guidance, practice and teaching, I now teach nidra classes every week night in Boulder county, nidra-based workshops and trainings in Colorado and throughout the country, and integrate the practice into my international retreats around the world.  I have found that after touching on the depth of experience in Yoga Nidra, I want to incorporate it in some way, in all that I offer. Everyone deserves to appreciate the bliss of total relaxation and realization.

Marin, you were and are amazing. I’m not sure it’s possible to feel anything but pure light and healing when experiencing one of your classes. I think I may be slightly addicted to the nidra classes now.
