Into the Heart of Being: Yoga Nidra Immersion, 100-Hour Yoga Nidra Facilitator Training with Simone MacKay and Emma Lowe from Somah Journeys
RESIDENTIAL TRAINING AT THE YOGI'S GARDEN (not at The Yoga Barn)
August 15-25, 2020
Please inquire with Somah Journeys about retreat facilities
Delve into the deepest consciousness of your Being through the beautifully restorative and utterly transformative practice of Yoga Nidra (Yogic Sleep).
These two unique offerings are brought to you by Somah Journeys from the prestigious School of Sacred Arts (the original and longest-running yoga teacher training academy at The Yoga Barn).
In a world that’s out of balance and in crisis because of the value we place on constant ‘thinking and doing’ rather than ‘feeling and being’ - this is an invitation to honour the radically important notion of rest and restoration within the wider context of the energy cycles inherent in nature. Inward and outward. Dynamic and contemplative, and so on.
Yoga Nidra is a powerful and systematic sleep-based meditation technique with a fast ability to induce peacefulness using effortless awareness.
Inspired by wisdom traditions from ancient to contemporary, mystic to scientific, transcendent to earth-based, we’ll explore the 5 layers of our Being (the Koshas). These are: the physical body, breath body, mental/emotional body, intuition and soul.
By understanding these layers that make up the entirety of who we are, we reclaim our balance and use that clarity to serve others - and the world - in a whole new way.
*The 7-day Yoga Nidra Immersion is a perfect opportunity to unplug, relax and restore with total mind-body nourishment. Suited for those beginning or building on their meditation journey.
Investment: Including accommodation and all meals starting from $1395
* The 10-day Facilitator Training is ideal for yoga leaders, therapists, coaches, counsellors, or holistic health professionals. Learn how to confidently guide Yoga Nidras, or offer practical tools to support others into restoration and transformative healing.
Investment: Including accommodation and all meals starting from $2250
Certification and advanced yoga teacher training program pathway:
This 100 hour training is a complete Yoga Nidra facilitator certification with Somah Journeys | School of Sacred Arts.
For those looking for an advanced 300 hour yoga teacher training, this program can be taken in combination with 2 other 100 hour yoga teacher training modules offered by Somah Journeys | School of Sacred Arts and Tina Nance Yoga Therapy. For Yoga Teachers working towards their 500 hour certification, this collaboration allows you to create a unique Yoga Alliance registered 300 hour advanced program.
The course can also be put towards continuing education hours with Yoga Alliance.
Luxury eco-friendly retreat location:
Both offerings will be held at the Yoga Barn’s brand new eco-retreat centre, The Yogi’s Garden, tucked away in a truly lush, idyllic location.
P.s At the bottom of Somah Journey’s homepage you can sign up to receive a FREE Yoga Nidra recording from Simone.

Cycles & Rhythms: Nature Embodied Yoga, 100-Hour Teacher Training with Bex Tyrer & Simone MacKay
October 17-27, 2020
There is a pulse that runs through all of life. It is found in the expansion of each inhale, and the contraction of each exhale. It is present in each birth and each death. It is what gives impetus to heal, and also the power behind all that is returned. Perhaps the greatest gift we can give as teachers is to share a practice that can help others to embrace this flow.
This is much more than an advanced yoga teacher training, it is a much needed rite of passage that restores soulful and meaningful connection to yoga and modern day living.
Somah Journeys offers a radically transformative yet simple approach to an embodied practice. This program offers a unique, non-dogmatic, post lineage lens to breath and movement practices, and a deep yearning to really teach a yoga which is relevant to daily lives. Our aim is to humbly explore some of the timeless practices drawn from yoga, medicine wheel teachings and other wisdom principles together with modern day mindfulness practices and advancements in neuroscience.
We will remember how to move in accordance with the natural rhythms of expansion and contraction which permeates the entire universe; from the cycles of breath, to the rhythmic pulse in our bodies, brainwaves and oceans, to the phases of the moon, transitions of the seasons, spiralling of the planets and, of course, to the human life cycles.
This advanced yoga teacher training moves beyond the limited binaries of feminine and masculine and of yin and yang, in the belief that life is not meant to be lived in opposition but in a constantly flowing and cyclical sacred balance. Simone and Bex's years of experience in the yoga world has led them to understand a spiritual practice as one that supports a deeply human experience. They work to liberate and return yoga from a set and straight line (lineage), or physical postures and restore it to its original purpose of being a highly personal and radical social tool that responds to the inherent intelligence of body and Earth, and allows for the cultivation of prana (life force) or source energy and lasting connection and balance.

The Power of Pleasure: Yoga For Eating Disorders Training and for Anyone who is Ready to Set Yourself Free with Cat Cabira
November 1-10, 2020
For Committed Practitioners and Teachers.
This training will guide you through an amazingly powerful homecoming: even if you haven’t struggled with food and body image, yet are sensitive and empathic towards others who do.
What do we consider to be healthy?
The distortion that we carry is that we are broken, when in fact we’ve been whole all along. Because liberation isn’t trying to change oneself; accepting yourself exactly where you are standing is the first step to overcoming our greatest obstacle: self-doubt, thus opening the door that allows us to return to our true self.
In this Training you will learn how to heal eating disorder patterns by:
Outlining what anorexia, bulimia and overeating patterns are really about.
Gaining a deeper understanding of it energetically, emotionally, mentally, collectively and ancestrally.
Getting real about our personal relationships with food and body.
Through Dynamic / Subtle Movement, meditation, and multi-dimensional work on our chakras / energy field we will:
Make new connections and pathways in our body and field, by connecting us more deeply to our inner truth and health.
Strengthen the connection between our personal power and voice.
Understand and strengthen our own energy field.
Healthily feel and process our emotional body without going into overwhelm.
Gain the skills necessary to face our selves, rise up and meet life with courage.
Understand how we restrict our own life force and power.
Discover how our emotions influence our digestion.
Discover ways we leave our body, how to bring awareness to it, and ultimately how to come back home to ourselves.
“I know firsthand: the fear that dominates; the struggle that seems to never end; the fear of losing control; how overwhelming it can be to be intimate with oneself; and what it’s like to finally trust. I have already navigated the desire to heal along with the fear of: who am I once I am healed? I’ve been there. Having walked through both the dark and the light paths, I know how to name what’s happening and how to hold space for you to embark on your journey towards recovery. I have the map and the torch; I can lead the way out.” ~ Cat Kabira
If you’re ready for freedom, to experience the pleasure of coming into your power, join this training: 10 days, 7 hours a day – a commitment that will open you up to a more expansive world, so you can come home to yourself.
The Field: The Power of Presence - Owning Your Fierce Magic with Cat Cabira
November 11-20, 2020
• Biodynamic Yin • Vision Quest • Subtle Energetics For You and Your Students
Take your practice and teaching into the deep waters, while strengthening your own energetic field and your chakras.
Join us if:
You’re ready for something more refined. You’re ready to go behind the scenes and meet what’s really the driving force in your life. You’re ready to be mature in your practice: to own your inner guru, your inner discernment; to know your truth, rather than defaulting to what someone else tells you is true.
This is all about energetics: the subtle realms, the power of sensitivity, a refinement of the senses. This is your place to create an energetic language for yourself, from within the invisible world that is the potent driving force for all we experience. This is a way to bring depth to your personal practice. This is your opportunity to drop into that place beyond the six senses, where those other senses get to be alive and trusted.
Enter “The Field”: where you can become intimate with your own energetic body and experience the magical connection between your mental, emotional, ancestral, physical and astral layers.
The Power of Presence - bringing the world of subtle energy into your teaching: working with individual students and how to hold space – or hold “the field” in larger group classes. It takes you owning you and allowing space for the transmission that wants to come through you.
You’ll go on your own inner Vision Quest and learn how to lead one. We will spend our time surfing different levels of consciousness, understanding the various brain wave states, dropping ourselves, and our students, into deeper healing states.
There is nothing standard in what we do. This training isn’t about giving you another system. It’s handing you back to you so you can step into your magic. 10 days of up-leveling your own practice, a place to bring refined awareness and spark the inner-knower inside.
You’ll never be the same when you leave. It’s fun in here. If these words speak to you, come join us.
