2022 Virtual Yoga Nidra Training
choose your own adventure ~ community powered course
What's a Community Powered Course?
This course has always been a Community Powered Course (CPC)
& finally, we have a new home that supports that experience!
This isn't a course where you watch the videos and figure it out on your own. Not at all.
When you join this course, you're part of a community.
Yes, you can do the pre-recorded portion of the course on your own time, yet it is so much more than that.
The community has the potential to have as big of an impact on your learning experience as the course content itself. One of my central tenants in facilitating online learning is to keep the community relationships & learning alive because, well... that's where the magic happens.
As a Course Leader, I'm constantly studying with my teachers enabling me to continue to learn, practice and grow. Even though everyone watches the same pre-recorded content, each training cohort is unique. It's YOUR participation and questions that drive the uniqueness. Essentially, YOUR cohort is designed for YOU. Therefore, the most dynamic and shape shifting aspect of this shared experience comes from our live, community focused, participatory sessions.
Once you join this training, you'll be invited into our private community space. I'm so stoked about this new space for our learning experience. It's far superior to anything I have come across in all my online learning. It's interactive, you have space to share, ask questions and get in conversations with your fellow seekers. AND, it's intuitive!
Don't take my word for it.
Check out what Laura Hanson said about the training after she graduated last spring:
This experience completely shattered – and reconstructed – what I thought I knew about the practice of Yoga Nidra. I really appreciated the format of the course – the opportunity to engage in self-guided study and learning and immerse myself more fully in the practice of Yoga Nidra between the live sessions. There is something so powerful about a sense of community and shared experience during a journey of this magnitude, and I love how that was nurtured through the thoughtful execution of this training. Jana’s style of teaching is equal parts theory and practice, with her genuine warmth, passion, and wisdom woven throughout. I really enjoyed the focus on the neuroscience behind Yoga Nidra, and the depth with which we explored this potent healing modality, in a time where our nervous systems crave rest more than ever – and the space to delve into creativity and self-expression in finding our own unique voice as guides of the practice. Very grateful to have had the opportunity to train with Jana and learn from her vast experience and knowledge – and to learn so much about myself as well in the process. Thank you, Jana, for an unforgettable journey – and for sparking so much excitement and inspiration for the path ahead.
Part 1: The Embodiment
This is your chance to experience Yoga Nidra in Action
We all meet up to experience live, transmission-based practices together in real time, and practice debriefs.
These sessions, with Jana are timed with the astrology OR with a practicum guide. After the live session, circle up with fellow trainees & with Jana or the guide present, debrief practice.
The Embodiment also includes an optional weekly distance group reiki session with Mark Roemer to help you clear & integrate.
Part 2: The Experience
Pre-recorded Modules 1, 2 + 3
This part is all about YOU and deepening YOUR experience with the practice to build intimacy with your Inner Genius & your Infinite and Ancient Nature.
We get nerdy about the nervous system, the nature of the mind, Neuroscience and a little taste of quantum, yet, this is more mystical in nature. By the end of this phase of the training, you'll gain embodied wisdom through your own experience that will allow the next phase to unfold with much more ease.
Part 3: The Technique
Pre-recorded Modules 4 + 5
A deep dive into what is happening behind the curtain to learn how to guide the practice. Modern and traditional perspectives will be shared to help you understand why and empower you to lead powerful practices.
This portion of the training is focused on the why behind the technique and elements of script writing.
While this phase of the training is more intellectual in nature - it always cycles back around into the mystical ;-) You will be prepared to write your own scripts.
Part 4: The Practicum
Break Out Sessions
Pre-recorded Module 6
Intention: Integration & support from incredible practicum guides to help you through your practicum.
The practicum must be completed to be certified.
You will be required to submit:
~ complete a quiz
~ a short book report
~ a written script
~ a recorded script
virtually guide a script live for your classmates
WHAT PEOPLE SAY
Jana, thank you for a genuinely amazing and transformative yoga nidra training. It was so much more than I expected and filled my soul. I am confident that yoga nidra will continue to be a deep practice within my life, and I am excited to share it with others. You are an authentic teacher -It's obvious that you practice what you teach. Thank you, thank you, thank you! I'm truly grateful for all of the information that you shared and loved the format of the self-study and then the 'in-person' where I could experience your beautiful yoga nidras. I loved the community and felt a deep connection to the others in this group from around the world. I hope to stay connected to you and the others, too. With deep respect and gratitude,
~ Linda Price ~
Like no other Nidra training out there. Jana's enthusiastic and reverential blend of ancient teachings, heart wisdoms and leading edge consciousness studies means there's a thread to follow inward for anybody interested, and a means by which to map open so much unexpectedly more for oneself. You'll leave with a lifetime's worth of new paths to explore, and a sense of belonging and capableness within this growing and essential Healing through Deep Rest Movement.
~ Graham Parsons ~
To say that this practice has reshaped my life and my relationship to myself, my creative flow and to rest itself almost feels like an understatement. I have benefited enormously from this practice and never cease to recommend it to students, friends and family. Despite already having a Nidra training in my history before this training, taking it and engaging with the way you guide it and the multitude of influences and teachings you have drawn together truly deepened the way I receive and guide the practice - especially in my live classes.
~ Breanna Morandi ~
Never before in history, has the world been just this way.
Sure, similar, but never quite like this.
It's all new.
We are making it up as we go.
I'm convinced NO ONE knows what's going on.
It can feel like one hell of a lonely mission out there sometimes.
As the world gets louder & more chaotic,
your most sacred work is to develop &
nurture your relationship with your Self,
your mental & emotional health,
AND with The Unknown.
I don't know if "the Unknown" is
the right descriptor for the above sentence.
Maybe it's God.
Maybe it's The Simulation
*with some serious budget cuts lately ;-)*
Maybe it's the Universe.
Maybe it's the Goddess.
I don't know.
And, well, I guess that's just the point
of Spirit, Source, Creator, Buddha, Allah, The Almighty One, Yahweh:
It's the All Pervasive, Benevolent, Great Unknown.
And maybe that's why it's lonely.
Because your Soul is begging for a Loving Sanctuary,
but you're looking OUT THERE (in the cruel world),
when what you're looking for can
only be found by looking
*points to heart*
The deeper I go into my own healing,
the more it becomes increasingly clear that
healing begins with LISTENING.
Listening to your Breath,
your Heart, your Body, your Soul.
Listening to the ones you Love.
Listening to your intuition.
Listening to the sweet whispers of that indescribable Love Force that is the backdrop of all existence.
And the quality of listening required now is only possible
if you actively set yourself up with dedicated time to do so.
The problem of this current Age of Information is that,
collectively, we've forgotten how to listen.
Yoga Nidra is one of the most prolific listening practices in existence.
Not only does Yoga Nidra teach you learn how to entrain your nervous (electrical) system into listening states,
but you also learn to cue your endocrine (chemical) system into more receptive states.
When you slide more fully into these states, the physiological response is to let go.
And in that moment, when you loosen your grip, resistance subsides
and finally, the healing process can begin.
True compassion and forgiveness is nearly impossible without fully present listening.
There has never been a more important time to be connected to your inner wisdom and listening practices.
With so many messages coming in from all different perspectives, an anchor into your Essential Self is one of the most valuable tools you could cultivate. As you nurture an intimate relationship with your Ancient and Infinite Self, you know who, what and how to trust by how it feels.
The ancient practice of Yoga Nidra helps you to do just that.
And when you have a map and begin to understand the neuro-architecture
that you have to tread through to get to that release point,
you're more likely to trust the process.
It's nearly impossible to explain to someone what the practice of Yoga Nidra is exactly,
yet once your awareness surfs into that luminal state of Yoga Nidra,
you know exactly what I am talking about.
Inside of the state of Yoga Nidra, you have the opportunity to witness your subconscious mind, unravel stories, release history, tap intuition and access a creative power that is unparalleled.
There is so much more to this practice!
We'll talk about all of this in the course.
ARE YOU IN?
If you're here, you've likely spent time in that precious and illuminating space and feel compelled to share the practice with others.
This training is for those who want to develop a deeper understanding of Yoga Nidra and its potential while amplifying the benefit of your practice, as much as it is for those who want to lead it. As guides of this practice, your experience with it directly informs your ability to lead it for others.

What's in it for you?
This training is a chance for you to recommit to your own self care, creativity, healing and rest. You'll have a chance to reconnect with your Inner Genius and your Inner Mystic. It should be noted that this isn't an Astro Nidra training, but I may bring Astrology into the live sessions if relevant (and it's always relevant). This is a prerequisite for the Astro Nidra trainings coming in the future.
This online training includes more than 60 hours in total, combining pre-recorded material + live zoom sessions with Jana + support teachers

WHAT PEOPLE SAY
"Training with Jana was a rebirth experience. For a week it felt like I lived in a parallel reality, one where my Soul was ignited, my intellect stimulated and my inner child soothed. Jana has so much wisdom and she share it with so much passion. The way she holds space is incredible. The way she carefully creates content and experience is amazing. I am so grateful I had the opportunity to study with such a goddess and urge anyone who feels the call to dive into the subconscious to reach out to Jana"
~ Tamara McLellan ~
"It's hard to formulate words for what this experience woke up within me. I went through every wave of emotion, deep into old resurfacing shadows and floated in waves of creativity and softness. It's provided an abundance of information and insight not only for the practice of Yoga Nidra but for Breathwork and Reiki as well. It has really brought a deep richness to my heart and has soothed something in my mind. The way you teach Jana with such devoted studentship and a genuine love for this practice, enlivens it in a way that no one else quite can. Thank you for taking the time to share your presence and your wisdom and your studentship and your giggle. You better believe I'll be recommending this course to everyone."
~ Michelle Baker ~
"Absolutely loved the online format. If I had to do this in person there is no way I would have absorbed as much as I did. I do wish we could have had some practices and shares in person to meet everyone and be in the aura of this precious and loving group. Having the lectures in thinktific is bon appetite! It solidified how I learn."

Jana Roemer has fourteen years of experience leading trainings. Her facilitation foundation was built on running 200 hr and 300hr YTT's amongst other trainings, eventually honing in to exclusively facilitate Yoga Nidra trainings in her own, most authentic voice.
She works in intuitive and loving ways to help coax your truth to the surface. You will receive personal coaching, participate in group discussions and refine your skills as a nidra guide through a teaching practicum and an optional post-training mentorship.
This training is rooted in traditional Yoga Nidra styles which follow the koshas as a map to the practice, enhanced by her time in advanced studies with Dr. Joe Dispenza and time tracked inside the practice where the practice itself informs the path.
Her intention is to create a deeply personal experience that will help to clear blockages and allow you time to explore your inner landscape so the practice speaks for itself. This training will set you up to guide yoga nidra practices with confidence.
