As you master the practices, you will be transformed from a false sense of self, defined by your needs and strategies to fulfill them, into a higher consciousness.

Katrina offers yogic philosophy, pranayama (breathing techniques), and sacred music to enhance your personal divine experience. 

What is Yoga Nidra?

Yoga Nidra is an ancient guided meditation technique that has the power to take you to the innermost, deepest levels of relaxation where your whole body and being is permeated by peace of mind and profound stillness. It unlocks the mystical, integrative powers of the subconscious, as well as your higher centers of consciousness. This meditation style that not only relaxes your body, it also creates a different relationship to stress-producing thoughts and emotions. The method focuses primarily on quieting the mind and boosting the energy (prana) flow in the body, thereby increasing the healing potential available. It guides the practitioner to experience the silent state of being that always resides within us. Yoga Nidra is known as “the deep one” and is as restorative as several hours of sleep.
