Program Description

A Sound Bath is a dreamy experience where tuning forks, Tibetan singing bowls, crystal bowls, gongs, chimes, shakers, and other instruments are played intuitively. A Sound Bath promotes deep relaxation and peace. It brings a contemplative inner awareness of the now and helps to open the body’s energetic system. Enjoy and learn to create a transformative Sound Bath experience.

Yoga Nidra is the practice of conscious deep sleep. In Yoga Nidra, we learn how to shed muscular, emotional and mental tensions. Muscular tensions arise from the body, the nervous system and through endocrine imbalance. Emotional tensions arise from the duality of emotions such as love/hate, joy/sadness, success/failure, which we are not able to express freely. Mental tension arises from excessive mental activity. Some of the techniques used to cleanse these tensions include body scanning, concentration on different sounds, opposite sensations, rapid imagery and visualization. Through the practice of Yoga Nidra, we cleanse physical, emotional and mental tensions.

This retreat is part of Yandara's 300-hr advanced program. It is ideal for those want to advance their yoga teaching career and certification and also for those who simply want to deepen their own personal practice. 

The lead teacher for this retreat style training module is Mercy Ananda (Sound Healer & Mantra Musician) together with the rest of our inspiring Yandara crew.

Accommodations

At our Baja, Mexico location we offer a few different choices for accommodation.

Deluxe Tents

The majority of yogis that attend our Teacher Training choose to stay in our deluxe tents. These are big tents that most people are able to stand up in. Each tent has a normal twin size bed and mattress, a small set of drawers and a lamp. Bed linens are provided, but we do not provide a bath towel. Comfortable and yet still close to nature. We like to call it luxury camping. For couples we can offer a larger tent with a larger bed. We have 6 bathrooms and 5 showers on our campus.

Yandara Cabana

The Yandara cabana has a full size bed. This cabana does have a private bathroom.
