More About The Yoga Nidra Workshop Presenters
Swāmi Muktibodhānanda
I found yoga in 1972 as an adjunct to classical ballet. I soon realised that the major benefits of yoga practise for me were at an emotional and psychological level. I was fortunate to meet Paramahansa Swami Satyānanda in 1976 at the Sydney World Yoga Convention. And I travelled to India to study under his direct guidance. For 10 years I lived at the Bihār School of Yoga, Munger. I practised various aspects of freedom yoga and taught classical Hatha Yoga. During this time I also authored ‘Swara Yoga, the Tantric Science of Brain Breathing’ and commentaries on ‘Haṭha Yoga Pradīpikā, the Light on Hatha Yoga’, the C15 AD Sanskrit text by Yogi Swātmarāma. Paramahansa Swāmi Niranjanānanda gave me the title of Yogācharya, master of yoga, in 1993.

While in Brisbane I teach regular yoga and meditation classes at my studio Mukti Freedom Yoga in Forest Lake.
My goal is to bring the ancient yoga practices into the modern day context

Back story...
“I Discovered Hatha Yoga as a Uni Student and soon after learnt Yoga Nidra and meditation. I found Yoga Nidra a great help with concentration, emotional balance and sleep. Later in life I used these tools to help relax and calm especially when raising children and dealing with life challenges. 
Working as a physio, I have the joy of seeing many people gain therapeutic benefits from integrating Yoga skills into their rehabilitation and self care.
Personally …
Following a knee injury from a skiing accident, the Restorative Yoga Nidra Method helped me deal with my grief, loss of function, acceptance, pacing and management of flare ups. It also helps me with, relaxation, self -reflection and overall feelings of well-being. 
 I regularly practice Yoga nidra along with focused meditation and Hatha yoga.
Mindfulness and Meditation
Rebecca has explored many different types of meditation practice. The Yoga Nidra Method is not aligned with any religion and encourages a personal connection with one’s inner self and personal values. It also opens up a whole inner world of personal development!
We hope you can join us!
