True transformation is a natural state of allowing ourselves to become whole. This can only take place through deep relaxation not through external stress and effort. Yoga Nidra is ancient yoga that facilitates not only deep relaxation but also true inner healing and transformation. The possibilities for transformation using Yoga Nidra is as limitless as the Source of Creation.

Yoga Nidra is considered to be the state in which the Gods reside. This is because the goal of Yoga Nidra is to attain complete relaxation while maintaining consciousness. The ability to do this allows for our deepest levels of creativity and healing energies to come to the surface. One session of Yoga Nidra is equal to approximately 3 hours of sleep in its ability to rejuvenate. Most of us when we sleep never really relax and truly let go into the deepest recesses of our unconscious and our connection to creation. This is what Yoga Nidra provides, the deep connection to our unconscious that leads to wholeness.


The Practice

During a Yoga Nidra session you simply lie down and follow the instruction given without strain or undue effort. What comes easily, you do, what doesn't, you let it pass. You will also be asked to choose a resolution, something that you would like to develop in your life that will have a positive effect on your path to healing. The seed of this intention when spoken at the beginning and the end of Yoga Nidra gets planted deep into the unconscious where it motivates changes in behavior and lifestyle situations that support your deepest heart's desire for healing to unfold. Yoga Nidra is suitable for all, and only requires the inner desire to discover relaxation and wholeness. Yoga Nidra is suitable for all levels and only requires the inner desire to discover relaxation and wholeness.


During this two-day workshop we will practice Yoga Nidra and study its spiritual and scientific theories. We will deeply explore the concept of karmic patterns, and how they create disharmony in health, lifestyle, life situations and thought patterns, and learn how to transform them and our unconscious content into vibrant life force energy.

The veil creating the illusion of separation and suffering was lifted and she was shown the root cause of suffering are the karmic patterns that each soul brings with them, keeping them feeling separate from their Divine nature through the various manifestation of stress in lives, resulting in disturbances in health, livelihood, and relationships. She has devoted her adult life to the transformation of these for herself and others through Yogic teaching, Karmic readings, Healing sessions and Devotional Music and Dance.


Ananda Shakti has been teaching Yoga Nidra since 1999 and has had a successful recording on I Tunes since 2004 under her western name Xenia Splawinski.  She receives numerous messages internationally from people letting her know how this recording has helped them in overcoming times of great stress and supporting the desire for deep change. 


She has had the immense honour of receiving spiritual initiations and blessings by many great masters in the Americas and in her Beloved India. As a devotee of the Divine Feminine she acts in service and inspiration. Her great delight in life is to share her experiences of awakening with others who are aspiring to know the Greater Love.
