We seek to impart the ageless virtues and principles of yogic wisdom through our teacher training, retreats, CD’s and private sessions, enabling graduates to teach with care, aptitude and creativity.
The best part of the Divine Sleep Yoga Nidra Teacher Training was the integration of yogic wisdom with the knowledge and opportunities to practice. I felt like this training was truly multi-dimensional and well integrated. The sessions to practice postures and Divine Sleep built up knowledge from slides and manual. Then the practice time to create and deliver scripts was developed incrementally and reinforced through all the above that it really came together for me. I leave with a fuller appreciation of myself as a whole being.
Yes! This training changed my life! I replaced smoking with Divine Sleep Yoga Nidra. I have confidence and Love for my body more than ever. The dynamics of the course are so loving. I am inspired to bring this back to my community! I am changed forever, I had no idea of the depth of restoration I would get from Divine Sleep.
Divine Sleep Yoga Nidra Teacher Training exceeded my expectations and opened my heart. The visualizations, the feeling of Jennifer’s heart being really in every aspect of the workshop: she was very kind, generous and well organized. The Divine Sleep training manual that she created for us is amazing. An excellent teacher!
It all flowed! I loved the direct participation and opportunity to experience Divine Sleep Yoga Nidra. Jennifer leads with grace, poetry and a voice that alone takes you five koshas down! She is very gifted and modest about it. I am excited to apply this to my practice with cancer and Parkinson students.
