Ready to connect with a community of extraordinary professional women who want to explore the deep state of BLISS found in I AM™ Yoga Nidra guided meditation while letting go of the stress and tension of a busy lifestyle?
Join us for a 3-day journey of self-discovery that will leave you feeling relaxed, restored and rejuvenated.
WHAT IS I AM™ YOGA NIDRA
I AM™ Yoga Nidra is a non-doing conscious sleep-based meditation.
Yoga nidra is a journey to the self from the gross physical and mental body to subtle energy and wisdom body and into bliss state of deep meditation.
In yoga nidra, we plant the seed of intention strategically in the bliss body where we consciously direct the path of our life.
During the guided meditation you will experience a powerful progression of shifts in the brain state for deep relaxation, restoration and a profound stilling of the mind and body.
Best practiced in a comfortable position where you are least likely to move, ideally lying on your back supported by bolsters under the knees, padding under the head and blankets for supreme comfort.
I AM™ Yoga Nidra guided meditation is received as an energetic experience beyond the mind, embracing the felt sensations in the body and creating a direct and positive impact on the energetic body without any effort on your part.
I AM™ Yoga Nidra guided meditation is an energetic transmission of the ancient yogic teachings of spiritual masters dating back 4,500 years.

WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING
I’m clearer and stronger with meditation and for the most part, I can get myself out of the story we create and put on others without knowing it. Now, when I’m in those moments where I get pulled out of myself with strong emotions I can stop myself and notice that I’m not attached to whatever is causing me to lose my balance at the moment. I can let go of what I can’t change and instead focus on me.
I’m sleeping better, feel less stress and frustration. I feel relaxed. I really like breathing. If you are ready to do the work, then this is the place to do it.
This experience was Priceless.
I feel empowered! I’ve been given the tools to do the meditations on my own and do a deeper dive into the areas of my life that need attention.
I can dive into the memories and old stories, and I can change the energy surrounding them. I can change that energy to better serve me. I was fearful and didn’t want to ‘go there’, but with your guidance and aftercare I no longer feel fearful, I feel strengthened!
I felt supported once we had developed that technique for breathing through each nostril. (Before that, I found that I was in a ‘mood’ that I couldn’t shake after the meditation) Having that aftercare was monumental for me. Thank you so much!
April, you are a dynamo! There is an energy that you create from within you that you gift to others. I’m so blessed to be the recipient of that energy. You are my calm in turbulence and my call to action when I feel stalled. I thank you for your patience with me, and for your objective support. Xxoo
I wasn’t sure about meditation. I have never done it. But I really enjoyed being guided and it was great. I look forward to our meetings and felt absolutely supported by the whole group.
I feel good. Sleeping better, my heart feels more open, not so heavy with stress and anger.
I have a bit more control over my emotions and my past doesn’t haunt me. I don’t feel like I will let things bother me as much. And if they do I have the tools to help me through.
MEET THE TEACHER
April Ria “Darshana” Qureshi-Davidson
Hi, I’m April Ria! Meditation and lifestyle coach, speaker and author helping busy professionals, like you, realize their true selves along the path of yoga.
Like many of you, I’m on a journey of self-discovery. I’m looking to find my true self beyond the ego-mind. After many years of feeling lost in the busyness of life, raising two kids and shifting through 3 careers I finally landed. Not only do I get to live my passion for leadership and self-mastery but I get to share that passion with you!
That’s why I created this community for women on the path to self-realization. We’ll explore how when we shift on the inside the world shifts along with us. We’ll inspire and support each other and have fun all along the way.
I’ve been practicing yoga and meditation since 1990, formalizing my training in 2018 as a registered yoga and meditation teacher.
This weekend retreat is going to transform the way you show up in life and business!
Get ready for an unforgettable ride ♥︎
