Perhaps you’re considering enrolling in the Daring to Rest Academy, but you’d like to know more about what to expect. Maybe you’re curious how you might incorporate yoga nidra into the work you already do. On today’s episode of the Daring to Rest Podcast, we’re taking you inside the Daring to Rest Academy with a few members of Tribe 2.
Melissa Barnet, Jo Blackman, Cheri Brown and Barbara Dopfer are all adding their own flavor to Daring to Rest and subsequently sharing the gift of yoga nidra with the world. Melissa has begun incorporating yoga nidra into her coaching practice, Cheri has added it to the offerings at her wellness center, and Jo and Barbara are making it an integral part of their retreats and classes.
Today, Melissa, Jo, Cheri and Barbara join me to take you inside the Daring to Rest Academy, sharing what inspired them to enroll and what to expect when you join. We discuss the community of love and support that is an integral part of the program and the reasons why aspiring facilitators are encouraged to teach yoga nidra from a rested place. Jo and Melissa explain how they ‘practice what they teach’ in the waking world, specifically as mothers. Cheri describes her passion to teach yoga nidra to chronically depleted caretakers and Barbara offers insight on the connection between rest and women’s empowerment. Listen in to understand how the Daring to Rest Academy is not only an investment in your own personal growth, but also an opportunity to build your own yoga nidra teaching practice or sprinkle it into what you already offer.
February is the only Academy enrollment period in 2019.
Make a cup of something to drink, take a pause - or listen on the go. For the next hour it’s time to go inside the Daring to Rest Academy.
