Promote healing in yourself and the world.
Get cozy. Find ease. Experience rest. This 6-week series invites you to explore Yoga Nidra, also known as Yogic Sleep. This guided relaxation and meditation experience will will sooth the soul. Like wrapping the mind in a warm blanket, Yoga Nidra invites your body to deeply relax into a sleep state while the mind stays inwardly alert and conscious. This ancient practice improves well-being by transforming emotions, improving mood, creating positive thinking patterns, and reducing self-limiting beliefs. No effort is required for this practice. All you have to do is find a comfortable position, lie down, and snuggle up with your favorite blanket.
Prior to resting, we'll work with breath practices designed to calm and rebalance the nervous system. From there, you'll be guided through gentle and healing meditation to open the heart and engage the mind. Everything comes together with a deeply restorative and rejuvenating Yoga Nidra experience. You'll leave each session of this series with a little less stress and feeling a lot more rested. The only prerequisite is that you are ready to get comfortable and invite peace into your being.

Meet Your Instructor
Daniel grew up in Canal Fulton, Ohio and was introduced to various spiritual paths by his parents. His mother instilled in him the importance and power of prayer and contemplation. His father's side of the family was deeply rooted in Catholism. Early on Daniel learned the value of tradition and spiritual discipline. Bullied from the beginning of his public school experience, Daniel had a strong desire to fit in and belong.
As a teenager, he landed in the fundamentalist tradition and developed a clearer understanding of Christianity. At the age of 17, Daniel decided to accept and be his true self and came out as a senior in high school. This admission intensified the bullying and turmoil in his life and instilled in him deep compassion and understanding.
As a 21-year-old, Daniel was introduced to Tibetan Buddhism and began meditating. This was the first time in his life he connected with inner peace. Daniel found meditation to be extremly healing and little by little began to heal both his mind and heart. Daniel's interest in meditation eventually led him to yoga. The somatic mind-body awareness provided Daniel the vision help others achieve inner peace and make yoga and meditation accessible to all.
Encouraged by his mentors, he pursued several teacher training programs and began offering meditation & yoga instruction. In his mid-thirties, he was introduced to the Shambhala Buddhist tradition. Though he enjoyed the aspect of sangha, he stepped away due to sexual misconduct originating from Shambhala's leadership. In 2020 Daniel co-founded Danja Yoga Studios in Columbus, OH. He launched Teacher Training programs focused in yoga and Buddhist meditation.
