The Workshop

Deep Trance, Relaxation & More

We are happy to offer a full-day workshop with Nirlipta Tuli! He will be offering unique teachings in this 1 'Hypnotic Language for Yoga Nidra' workshop.

Spend the day exploring hypnotic language patterns. Experience hypnotic techniques. Learn self-hypnosis for feeling better. Relax more. Learn about the connections between hypnosis, trance, and Yoga Nidra. Learn how you can be manipulated hypnotically and how to not be overcome.

Relax well.  Rest well.

Yoga Nidra, the meditative heart of yoga is a trance state that can bring us into effortless relaxation and profoundly creative connection to the source of inspiration and revitalization. It is yoga with no need to move! The deep restful state of Yoga Nidra is very closely related to Hypnotic trance. The language we use to create powerful and effective Yoga Nidra practices is often Hypnotic Language. 

This fascinating, practical day of multiple Yoga Nidra practices gives you an introduction to this potent trance practice. Understanding the power of language in relation to the power of trance is a profound transformative tool, whether for oneself or for working with clients. This day presents you with opportunities to experience and practice techniques of trance induction that leads to transformation.  This offers the ‘how to’ of hypnotic language for your Yoga Nidra.  

There will be multiple opportunities throughout the day to experience many varieties of hypnotic language in Yoga Nidra settings, as well as giving opportunities for discussion and dialogue.   

The core of the day is, of course, going to be focused on the actual sustained experience of nidra, so you can expect to feel totally refreshed, inspired, and deeply rested by the end of the day.
