"This course is life changing. We tend to learn a lot about our bodies, but no so much about our brain. Learn how to fortify your most vulnerable asset by spending time with it and reap the benefits of the deep rest Yoga Nidra offers."  

- Alexa Tomaszewski, Transformational Sleep Graduate, CYT 200 -

"I connected with some of the deepest parts of myself, nourished the parts I was neglecting, and strengthened the ones I knew supported me. I became aware of limiting beliefs & thought patterns with worksheets provided by Ally. This type of self-study and work can be so difficult without the right tools or support system, yet the simplicity and safe space created made it much easier. This alone makes the training priceless."  

- Renee LeBlanc, Transformational Sleep Graduate, CYT 200 -

"The structure of the course is so beautifully delivered in right timing with digestible portions" 

- Tarryn Cothill, Little Souls Yoga -

"Ally’s ability to bring the science of Yoga Nidra into the training, while still being sensitive to it’s yogic roots is absolutely fantastic."

- Melissa Burton, Yoga Nidra Graduate, CYT 200 -

"I’ve been in the depths of Yoga Nidra teacher training with these beautiful souls for the past month and it’s been very nourishing, both professionally to grow as a yoga teacher and also on a deeply personal level letting go of deeply engrained beliefs, thoughts & emotional patterns. I cannot believe this training is almost finished but it’s just the beginning of a life long beautiful journey."

Glenda Van Koot

"I’ve taken classes and studied with world renowned meditation teachers. You are well on your way to joining them Ally. Keep leading from your heart and I’ll be here in your front row cheering you on. I’m so glad I responded to your initial “would anyone be interested in a Yoga Nidra training?” post and decided to jump in despite knowing little about Yoga Nidra. You are on fire girl!"

Ru Henry

200 RYT, Yoga and Sound Meditation Guide

"I was a bit reluctant to take this training since I was taking a similar one already, but I have to say I am so glad I jumped in. I had a feeling that this was going to be more in-depth and more experiential and it definitely has been. My expectations for learning have been far exceeded. There is so much extremely relevant information and it is so well presented and sequenced in a very thoughtful way."

Ally's path has been one of healing from anxiety, depression, panic attacks and insomnia through the ancient science of Yoga, particularly Yoga Nidra.

There is nothing she would rather do than share these precious tools of Yoga Nidra with the world through empowering others to skillfully bring this effortless & powerful meditation technique to their students, clients & loved ones. Ally has been a faculty member of a variety of teacher trainings over the years and is the co-director of the School of Living Yoga (200 & 300 hour Trainings and Moon to Moon Restorative Teacher Training)

Charlie has been working with sound & teaching sound meditation for almost a decade but their sonic education started a long time ago as a professional musical theatre performer and the study of sound + music in a theatrical setting.  They have studied sound therapuedics with teachers throughout North America as well as India (Svaram, Auroville).  It is deeply important to be educated on the gross and subtle aspects of sound meditation and to have a solid foundation to work with vibration for yoga nidra specifically and we are lucky to have Charlie as a guest teacher inside of the training.

"When I think of Ally and Tiina and the Yoga Nidra training, the following words come to mind....authentic and aligned, ability to share and express heart felt knowledge, a compassionate approach with genuine care and interest in others, honest, inspiring, creative, committed to becoming part of each students developmental process, approachable, and capable of sparking and guiding people through real transformation on many levels. Thanks Ally and Tiina"

"Gosh, where to begin...

I have found this course so amazing on so many levels! I have found myself doing things with more ease. Working on beliefs that do not serve me, I am feeling myself blossoming into my authentic self. I find myself taking uncomfortable action with more ease (i.e., opening and sharing my heart, being on camera in front of others). I find myself putting more trust in my abilities as well as the universe. Surrendering the best I can, I am letting the small stuff go. Thank you for this course! It isn’t just about learning how to guide a beautiful practice. It is also about becoming intimate with your own being and allowing your light to shine from within!"

Kristyn Foster

"This training has supported me in so many deeply healing and therapeutic ways. With a daily yoga nidra practice, I find my over health and well-being has improved significantly. I have learned to become more a witnessing presence when experiencing feelings and emotions, and to know how to access my inner resource when faced with challenging situations. A devoted practice worked as a catalyst and has inspired me greatly to share yoga nidra and help others to heal in the same way."

"As a graduating social worker, I have been overjoyed to take Ally's Nidra Teacher Training. Understanding how Yoga Nidra impacts the brain on a cellular and hormonal level has provided evidence based knowledge for me to use in practice that complements the spiritual knowing I already felt. The online experience has been one of the smoother ones of my COVID isolation. After using Yoga Nidra in my own mental health healing journey, I am happy to have taken this course to incorporate yoga nidra in the classroom, the birthing room, and in trauma-informed practice."
