”What a great training! Packed with well rounded information about Yoga Nidra. Fun, inspiring, and easy to incorporate into my teaching and my own practice. And FUN, did I mention fun?! Mona is a fantastic teacher.”~ Mark Waterman, Massage Therapist, Marma Trainer, Yoga Teacher
When the yoga nidra course was announced, I couldn’t sign up quickly enough. After having completed the 300hr ISHTA training with Mona as my mentor and having a taste of “Mona Anand’s ISHTA Yoga Nidra” technique as part of that training, I was eager to spend more time with both. The transmission of this work from Mona to her students is nothing short of magical. Her tremendous knowledge and insights of yoga coupled with her well-known humor is a potent combination. However, when the transmission is yoga nidra there is something almost other-wordly that occurs. Her passion for this work is in every word she speaks, whether one is being guided through a yoga nidra by her or is in the midst of learning this powerful technique from her. The class content was interesting and thorough and Mona creates a warm and engaging environment that allows for an even more satisfying learning experience.” ~ Tisha Ford, ISHTA Yoga Teacher, RYT-500

During the course, we were given a lot of really helpful information on the individual steps that make up yoga nidra, as well as scientific reasons behind why and how it works. All fascinating! Mona manages to. weave all of this wonderful information together in a fun, practical, and very creative manner.
