During your self-learning process, I’m honored to answer any questions you might have and can even arrange a personal consultation regarding your teaching or about how to make Yoga Nidra a viable part of your Yoga Community.

What is Yoga Nidra?
Yoga Nidra is the relaxing and mystical journey deep into the inner-realms of consciousness where through a guided meditation, you get to experience your True Nature, something that feels one with all things, infinite, and whole. Such wholeness leads naturally to profound healing, boundless equanimity, and and understanding of your life, unparalleled by every-day thinking. Stress, trauma, and scarcity seem insignificant after you've experienced the part of you that is infinitely larger than any of these smaller experiences. Truly, through Yoga Nidra you see into the vastness of the Universe that is within you.
One of the things that differentiates Yoga Nidra from other forms of mindfulness is its emphasis on getting relaxed as the gateway to experiencing your True Nature, that of Awareness itself.
The effects of Yoga Nidra are as profound as they are relaxing. Through practicing awareness, you experience yourself, your REAL self, without boundaries, fears, or limitations. You open up to astounding and beautiful clarity about who you are. It opens you to feel at one with all things, increases your capacity for love, and helps you to be more compassionate. It shows you your gifts for the world, shows you your strength and power, and helps you feel as though someone has turned up all the colors of your life. Yoga Nidra is perhaps the most effective way I know to manage and eliminate trauma and stress.
Indeed, Yoga Nidra has been one of the most profound and spiritual practices I’ve ever encountered. And I’m not alone. Millions of people love this practice. One of the reasons why is because people often receive expansive insight, nurturing relaxation, and deep healing from just one session.
Personally, I discovered Yoga Nidra in 2004 and have had the privilege of learning this important practice from some of the worlds leading Yoga Nidra experts. I’ve spent the last 10 years mastering the art of teaching of Yoga Nidra and I’ve been privileged to work with literally 20s of thousands of students worldwide through live classes, recordings, workshops, webinars, lectures, and online courses.
The world desperately needs more Yoga Nidra and more qualified Yoga Nidra instructors. Practicing Yoga Nidra is easy but teaching it effectively can be complex. I’d love to share my knowledge of teaching Yoga Nidra with you.
Yoga Nidra Course: Sourcing Your True Power
This is an online course designed for anyone interested in how Yoga Nidra can help them with their every-day life. It’s perfect for students and teachers alike and is a marvelous personal journey into the depths of your True Self.
This is not a teacher training program. Click here if you would like the Yoga Nidra teacher training program.
I've been practicing and teaching Yoga Nidra for the past decade and I built this Yoga Nidra course called Sourcing Your True Power because I believe it will change your life. The idea is that when you tap into your True Self, your Source, everything else in your life is derivative to that therefore everything in your life will become supercharged. I know of no better way of tapping in to your True Self than through Yoga Nidra.
If you've never done it, Yoga Nidra feels like a guided meditation. It's very relaxing and it will teach you more about yourself than any other practice I can think of. To me, it feels like the fast track to eliminating stress while also experiencing spiritual awakening.
Yoga means to yoke all the different parts of yourself in order to experience a oneness with all beings. This might sound lofty but I'd argue that we've all experienced this already but we've just called it something different.
Nidra refers to a state of mind, like a daydream where you're in that liminal place between dreaming and waking consciousness. We access this experience of Oneness by getting very relaxed and paying attention.
In this online Yoga Nidra course, you get a complete digital library with dozens of hours of audio recordings of Yoga Nidra practices, gentle yoga videos, articles, interviews, poetry, chants, discussions, and more--all focused on taking you through this soul journey of Yoga Nidra.

“I had started experiencing anxiety for the first time in my life four months ago, and it was intense to say the least. I stumbled into Scott’s Yoga Nidra course and immediately I felt nurtured. The kind of nurturing a disoriented anxious person craves. I am so happy I signed up for this course, I cannot tell you how significantly my life has changed from this newfound practice. I felt change even after the first time I gave this new practice a go, I felt inspired and supported. Since, I have used this meditation anytime I start to fall into a funk because it reminds me that I am strong and capable. This practice has also helped me slow down and feel grounded in the everyday bustle that once felt impossible to face. I trust myself more than ever. I am addicted! ”
— K. S.
One result of practicing Yoga Nidra is that it can help you understand what YOUR gifts are in this world and how to share them. Yoga Nidra is experiencing the TRUEST form of YOURSELF. Most poignantly, Yoga Nidra is about connecting to Source and therefore your ultimate power.
Some of the most profound experiences I've had have been the direct result of Yoga Nidra. I've learned more about myself, Yoga, and the beautifully complex Universe we all live in through Yoga Nidra, more than any other practice. I've spent almost a decade not only learning about this practice but mastering the art of teaching it. I've discovered several things along the way and I have created this course to offer some of the same insight to you as you make your own way through your journey of Self-discovery.

“Listening to Scott’s voice in the Yoga Nidra course is like laying on the beach and hearing the waves ebb and flow. In the buzz of today’s busy life, Yoga Nidra is like an island of calm. I feel so relaxed and centered afterwards. Of course, my rational mind also wants everything explained, and Scott does that too. He truly has a way with words that makes each concept clear and understandable. . . Scott’s Yoga Nidra course is a good way to de-stress and get energized for what lies ahead. I highly recommend it.”

"That's All Good But . . . " How to Apply Yoga Nidra to Your Daily Life
Here's how this course works:
When the course begins, you'll receive a password that gives you access to the 6 learning modules. Then, on your timetable, you may read, listen to, download, and watch this incredible, life-changing content. This is your rich library of source material to help you along your journey of Self-discovery.
At the heart of each module is a unique Yoga Nidra practice (20-30 minutes), specific to the topic and designed to help you evolve through a sequential learning about yourself. You can either stream the recording from your computer or smartphone or download it to listen to later and create an audio library. If you're not very tech savvy, don't worry. Included is a simple tutorial about how to download the materials and play it on your computer, smartphone, tablet, etc. through programs like iTunes and Dropbox.
Each module will also have a discussion about its topic. You can listen to and/or read the discussion. If the discussion and Yoga Nidra practice weren't enough, each module is also packed with supportive content, including yoga videos, stories, myths, chants, breathing exercises, links, podcasts, videos, and several other additional resources.
One of the greatest benefits of this course is that there is no time limit to complete the modules!
You can always go back, skip around, stay on the same module for a while, it's up to you. All the materials are yours to keep. Each modules are designed to lead you deeper and deeper into the knowledge and practice of yourself through Yoga Nidra, however, you don't have to follow them sequentially. We'll be moving together as a group but you can take all the time you need or come back and review the material you really love.
Again, at the end of the course you'll have a rich library of materials that you'll want to reference for years to come.
What if I'm terrible at yoga?
No worries! Yoga Nidra can be done by ANYBODY. Plus, the movement style of yoga (asana) that we do before the guided Yoga Nidra will be gentle enough to accommodate for all kinds of ability levels, strengths, limitations, etc. Also, you can always skip the movement portion of the module. That's the benefit of this kind of learning environment! Literally anybody can do this! All you have to do is lie down, close your eyes, and relax. I'll lead you through the entire practice.
What if I get so relaxed, I fall asleep?
If you fall asleep, MISSION ACCOMPLISHED! Seriously, the part of you that is listening to Yoga Nidra is deeper than your conscious mind so the practice still works, even if you're asleep. It's nice to try to stay awake so that you can remember what we did but if you don't it still works! Plus, you have the recordings archived so you can re-listen to them whenever you want.
I'm so confident you'll love this that I offer a 100%, no-questions, money-back guarantee.
Thank you! and Namaste.
