Yoga Nidra and the Art of Self Remembrance


At its heart, yoga nidra is about waking up to the fullness of your life. It is a practice devoted to allowing your body and mind to rest while your consciousness remains awake and aware, creating the opportunity for you to tap into a deeper understanding of yourself and your true nature.

Immerse yourself in a weekend retreat guided by author and teacher Tracee Stanley for an exploration of deep relaxation and self-remembrance. Explore how yoga nidra creates the foundation of support for deepening the experience of deep rest. Through guided practice, community gathering, and more, you will delve into

  • Yoga nidra as a practice that allows you to fall asleep to the ego and awaken to the soul
  • Pratyahara, the four states of consciousness, and the sound of aum
  • Solutions for breaking down obstacles to receiving rest
  • Take home tools for self-guided practices.  

With more than 20 years of experience as a yoga nidra teacher and practitioner, the focus of Tracee's teaching honors life as a ritual—devoted to yoga nidra, meditation, self-inquiry, nature as a teacher, and ancestor reverence. Come explore your true self and build your practice for this new season.

The more you look within for the answers and make shifts guided by the inner wisdom that self-inquiry nurtures, the smaller the gap between who you truly are and how you are living becomes. You begin to live in alignment with purpose.
