I consider Yoga Nidra to be one of the greatest and most valuable things I have ever encountered. The ability to practice equanimity and peace consistently and reliably has beneficially altered the landscape of my being forever. At this point I am fully committed its practice, study, and proliferation. Currently I am based out of beautiful Arcata, Humboldt County, California, United States where I began offering Yoga Nidra publicly in 2016 and I began teaching dedicated public classes in March 2017. Up to this point I have shared Yoga Nidra at local Yoga studios, schools and at Humboldt State University. In October 2018 I attended the first Total Yoga Nidra Facilitator Training hosted in the United States just north of Santa Cruz, California.
I was introduced to Yoga Nidra in 2011 and began practicing occasionally. I dedicated myself to the practice of Yoga in 2015 and I currently practice Yoga Nidra 5+ times per week.
I have studied the writings and methods of Swami Satyananda. I have delved deep into the work of Richard Miller and I also appreciate the understanding put forth by Swami Jnaneshvara Bharati in the Swami Rama Lineage. My teaching and philosophical outlook are also heavily influenced by my study of Tantrik Philosophy with Christopher Hareesh Wallis. I very much enjoy blending styles when I practice and teach.
How I chose to present Yoga Nidra is flavored considerably by my study and practice of Neuro Linguistic Programming. I have worked in person with a local trainer and I highly value the work of Dr. Richard Bandler. Richard Bandler’s Guide to Trance-formation: How to Harness the Power of Hypnosis to Ignite Effortless and Lasting Change (2008) is a treasure trove for the Yoga Nidra enthusiast.
It is my honor and joy to share with you worldwide on the Yoga Nidra Network.
