You will receive your own unique yoga nidra card deck system which will allow you to easily customize Yoga Nidra experiences. This training is excellent for psychologists, mindfulness practitioners, bodyworkers, yoga teachers, healthcare workers, helping professionals, hypnotherapists and energy healers in search of new tools to serve their clients.

I AM Yoga Nidra™ Certification or Yoga Nidra II: Certification is a continuation of Yoga Nidra I: Immersion. Once you have successfully completed both Yoga Nidra I and II: Immersion and Certification, you will receive Certification as an I AM Yoga Nidra Certified Facilitator.

This course is guided and expertly mentored by Kamini Desai and John Vosler via live zoom conferences, combined with post-meeting quizzes and at home study and personal practice components for a total of 50 hours. Some participants will be taking the course live in person with Kamini and some will be online led by John Vosler. Both groups will be learning from both teachers and will receive personal mentoring from assistants and both lead teachers.
