Contributors to the Training

"I was more relaxed, more peaceful & calm after the session. I enjoyed the nature sounds; and the sense of energetic shift in the body activated by the yoga nidra (I could feel energy flowing). EcoNIDRA is so calming for the nervous system and is an excellent tool for the deep rest and calm that are so needed in our lives today." - Participant

"After the session, I felt deeply peaceful and happy. These feelings are still there to tap into, hours after the meditation. Throughout the session, you in many small and big ways took care of making us all feel welcome, comfortable, and secure. As a teacher of many group online classes, I was impressed with your skill and kindness in holding space."  - Participant
