Yin Yoga, Yoga Nidra & Reiki

100 Hours / 2 Weeks

This program is an addition to our regular yin yoga immersion. Here we cover the basics of the Yin Yoga Therapy approach and you will learn all about the Art of Yoga Nidra plus you will have the opportunity to receive a Reiki Initiation if you wish.

In Yin Yoga as well as in Yoga Nidra and Reiki we are exploring the concept surrender and release while we are opening up to guidance from beyond. Making our way through layer upon layer of habitual holding patterns of emotional history deep inside our tissues, muscles and cells. Releasing emotional tension, freeing stagnant or blocked energy. We take the time out to listen to our body closely, to understand the transformative possibilities of being present with sensation means to experience mindfulness principles on a physical level. To let the body guide the mind to the ultimate experience of peace. To cultivate a loving-kindness attitude to ourselves, and from this place of abundance offering it to the world.

There is so much more to Yin Yoga than only the physical stretching and rejuvenation. Allow Yin Yoga to be an art, a philosophy and a way of living.

If you’re up for exploring some more of this with us this is your course. In addition to the Yin Yoga foundation you will also learn all about Yoga Nidra’s background information. You will be introduced to explanations of the Yoga Nidra theory in both yogic and scientific terms. Experience the effects and applications of Yoga Nidra, as well as an introduction to possible sequential arrangements and a in depth exploration of how to practically prepare Yoga Nidra scripts stepwise for various different applications.

You will receive Reiki healing sessions and the Reiki Initiation and Certification inclusive all theoretical background information, Reiki symbols, and a practical guidance on how to use them. You will hands on explore how to give Reiki sessions to others (theory and real time practice) and how to perform Reiki distant healing (theory and real time practice).

Yoga Nidra

Yoga Nidra, or yogic sleep as it is commonly known, is a beautiful and powerful meditation technique that is becoming increasingly popular as a strong and effective antidote for our modern, stressful lifestyles. It is one of the easiest yoga practices to develop and maintain. While the practitioner rests comfortably in Savasana (corpse pose), this ancient systematic meditation technique takes you through the pancha maya kosha (five layers of self), leaving you with a sense of wholeness, rejuvenation and deep relaxation.

In Yoga Nidra, the practitioner becomes systematically and increasingly aware of the inner world by following a set of verbal instructions. The practitioner is guided into a state of consciousness between waking and sleeping that is conducive to deep emotional and physical healing, rewiring of the brain and deep self-exploration.

Yoga Nidra is an effective and efficient way to access the “rest and digest” parasympathetic state of the nervous system and has been found very successful in reducing stress, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and anxiety. Yoga Nidra is among the deepest possible states of relaxation, while still maintaining full consciousness. It helps to rest, restore, de-stress, increase awareness, undo bad habits and bring awareness to deep-rooted conditioned behavioral patterns, it helps bring insight into our true calling and will help with bringing our life into alignment with our truth. Thirty minutes of Yoga Nidra practice is said to be equivalent to 3 to 4 hours of deep sleep.

 

The health benefits of Yoga Nidra include:

 

  • Relaxing and rejuvenating the body
  • Soothing the nervous system
  • Reducing fatigue
  • Lowering high cholesterol and blood pressure levels
  • Strengthening immunity
  • Improving quality of sleep
  • Reducing depression
  • Reducing mental, emotional and physical pain
  • Boosting concentration and memory
  • Supporting brain function and boosting creativity

Reiki

Reiki is an energy healing art with its roots in Japanese origin. The word Reiki comes from the Japanese word ‘Rei’ which means “Universal Life” and ‘Chi’ which means “Energy”. Reiki is not affiliated with any particular religion or religious practice. It is not a massage nor is it based on belief or suggestion. It is a subtle and effective form of energy work using guided life force energy. Reiki is the life energy that flows through all living things. Reiki practitioners understand that everyone has the ability to connect with their own healing energy and use it to strengthen the energy in themselves and help others. It is believed that a person’s Chi or energy should be strong and free-flowing. When this is true a person’s body and mind is in a positive state of health. When the energy becomes weak or blocked it could lead to symptoms of physical or emotional imbalance. A Reiki session can help remove energetic blockages, ease tension and stress and can help support the body to facilitate an environment for healing on all levels – physical, mental, and emotional. A Reiki session is usually very pleasant and deeply relaxing experience and is often utilized for one’s personal general well being or for healing specific mental, emotional or physical conditions. Reiki can be conducted either hands-on, in which several parts of the body are lightly touched by the practitioner’s hands to direct the energy there, or hands-off, where the hands are held slightly above the body. In addition, as Ki is not limited by distance or time, distant or remote Reiki healing is also possible without the client being physically present.

Reiki Initiations and Courses

The ability to use Reiki is not taught in an intellectual sense but is transferred to the student during a Reiki attunement (initiation) given by a Reiki teacher (Reiki Master). This ceremony, called Reiju (Ray-joo) in Japanese, is performed by the Reiki Master and opens and expands the main energy channels of the student’s body, allowing universal energy to flow more freely and deeply. The Reiki initiation allows the student to tap into an unlimited supply of “life force energy” and to use this energy to heal himself and others. Because of this opening process, the attunement also does what Reiki is meant to do in the student, namely clear blockages. This can create significant energy changes within the student and may initiate a period of transformation and self-growth.

In the Usui Reiki system, there are usually three levels that can be attained and these are all centred on the initiation process, combined with education and practice. Reiki Level I is a practitioner’s initiation into Reiki. The focus in Level I is on opening the energy channels on a physical level and allowing the practitioner to connect to the universal life force energy. Reiki Level II is often defined by a focus on practising Reiki on others, as well as an expanded opening of the energy channels. In addition, the student also receives some of the Reiki Symbols. The Reiki symbols allow the practitioner to connect more deeply to the universal energy, as well as draw on the qualities that the symbols represent. This includes the ability to provide distance Reiki, or send healing energy to individuals wherever they may be. Reiki Level III (Master Level) is traditionally considered the teacher’s level, a practitioner who has received the energy and knowledge to attune new Reiki practitioners.

Big time love to our Yin Yoga Therapy team and thank you for the learning experience with our beloved Body-Mind-Soul Centre ♡

When I first underwent my Reiki training I’ve never experienced Reiki before. I was skeptical to say the least 🤪 and I didn’t believe it was real. I honestly thought that it was all a bit woo woo 🤣

But once I had my Reiki training it opened up a world of new experience and healing for me in my spiritual journey 💗

I’d honestly say that it was just as impactful on my life as my yoga teacher training.
