Empowered Wisdom Yoga Nidra Teacher Training & Certification
Immerse yourself in the profound state of Yoga Nidra and embody the teachings that allow you to transmit powerful and transformative yoga nidra experiences.

Why Tracee & Chanti are Collaborating
Collaboration is the ability to be fluid in a creative environment with each other. We choose to collaborate for a number of reasons. It allows us to grow with each other, and critically think about what we teach and how those teachings are expressed. In a world where hierarchy and being at “the top” is paramount, we want to be an example of how teaching can also be a practice in sacred relationship— with each individual in the room, our environment and that which we are exploring: Nidra Shakti.
