Pathways Academy of Life – 100 Hour Yoga Nidra Teachers Training is a 10 -day curriculum in the ancient art and secrets of yoga, its traditions, psychology, philosophy and techniques to attain Self realization. This training teaches one how to integrate the age-old teachings and modern day life, into a way of being, bringing balance, inner peace and fulfilment to life. People are beginning to realizing that we are multi-dimensional beings of mind, body, emotions and soul and that our subtle body is who we are in essence and governs our fulfilment in life and wellness. In order to attain complete inner peace we need to change the way, we see and react to life and transform the person that sees. To do this we need to understand the subtle body and its workings.

The subconscious mind is the store house of everything that has happened in our life positive or negative and holds every psychic scar of traumatic events that we have been through. This creates our persona, how we see and relate to life, how we react to life and how we experience life. The sub conscious mind does not know the difference between fact or fiction and takes everything that it is presented with as fact. The sub conscious mind can be healed from psychic scars and traumatic experiences and our outlook to life can also be healed if we imprint suggestions directly to it without going through the conscious mind. The sub conscious mind does not understand human language, its language is pictures, symbols, feelings, word and repetition. The conscious mind is the mind that we work through in our daily lives. It is analytical and rational and can choose to accept or reject information presented to it. We need this mind to function in the physical world, however if it is present it does not allow us to feed any information to the subconscious mind without its approval and consent.

In this course you will learn the ancient technique of Yoga Nidra to withdraw the conscious mind and imprint healing suggestions directly to the sub conscious mind. The messages are suggested in the positive as though the suggestion has already occurred as the sub conscious takes everything as fact and with frequent repetition it becomes very powerful and remains there bringing about transformation to the persona, how we see and react to life, and how we experience life.
