Lovejoy Yoga Nidra is a journeying practice rooted in tantric yoga, trauma hypnotherapy & earth-based wisdom
Yoga Nidra is an invaluable tool for our total wellbeing in a world that asks so much of us. The premise of Yoga Nidra is that we are already whole, that all parts of us are welcome, and that as we find liberation from the patterns of fear, shame and separation that we've been programmed with, we can remember the truth of our essence and tap into our innate spiritual power and bliss.
Yoga Nidra's healing potential comes from how this practice guides the release of tension on all levels (physical, mental, emotional, energetic, spiritual). This meditation and energy healing modality promotes physiological and emotional wellbeing, assists in the unraveling of karma, and opens the door to expanded states of consciousness. It can be used for spiritual development, for therapeutic applications, or to rebalance the sleep cycle and healthy body function. It is an ancient system that has become more relevant and necessary than ever as a tool for the healing of humanity. Learn more about how Yoga Nidra supports trauma healing here.

MORE ABOUT LOVEJOY YOGA NIDRA
Lovejoy Yoga Nidra is a practice of weaving together consciousness and energy to support liberation, expansion, and empowerment. This system is influenced by the teachings I have received through a decade of yoga, hypnotherapy, trauma healing and shamanic studies. Like all parts of nature, Lovejoy Yoga Nidra is an ever evolving system guided by continual exploration of the healing potential of altered states of consciousness and a balanced nervous system. This style of Yoga Nidra is a systematic journeying practice that explores and clears different levels of consciousness, while supporting the grounding of spiritual energy into the physical body. This practice activates and maintains healthy functioning on body, mind, energy, and soul levels. The intention of Lovejoy Yoga Nidra is to support our personal and collective liberation, empowerment, creativity, unconditional love, and joy of being. This is a journey back to wholeness and belonging.
How is Lovejoy Yoga Nidra different from other styles of Yoga Nidra? Lovejoy Yoga Nidra is founded on the principles and practice of the Satyananda style of Yoga Nidra from the Bihar lineage, additionally influenced by the more modern lineages of iRest and IAM Yoga Nidra. Where LoveJoy Yoga Nidra is a trauma-informed practice that pays particular attention to creating safety and containment. Rooted in tantra and trauma resolution, this style of Yoga Nidra is also influenced by ecopsychology and ancient alchemical systems, and incorporates elements of hypnotherapy and shamanic healing. It is a dynamic, multicultural, holistic, transformative, and healing experience.
I am grateful to all the teachers who have contributed to the wisdom and healing I am blessed to carry: Alan Finger, Mona Anand, Kamini Desai, Richard Miller, Uma Dinsmore-Tuli, David Hartman, Michael Malone, Shahn McGuire, Susan Estep, Cari Webb, and David Warren.
