WHAT STUDENTS HAVE TO SAY

The Yoga Nidra training was exceptional and surpassed any expectations I may have had. Nick is a present, authentic, and encouraging teacher, leader, and facilitator. The way he integrated direct experience, instruction, and discussion kept us engaged and curious throughout the training. And, I'd have to say it was the most intellectually AND spiritually stimulating training I've attended. As a mental health professional, I have been able to apply the knowledge and skills from the training into my work in clinical and community settings - and believe any professional that incorporates meditation and mindfulness into their work could, as well. I look forward to attending future trainings with Nick.

This was one of the most transformative training weekends I have ever attended! I walked in assuming I was going to learn a few deep relaxation tricks. It was this and so much more!!! The effects of deep relaxation and attuning to all that surrounds us sharpens our senses and helps us reach new depths. Dr. Nick Atlas is very knowledgeable in his field and will make you at ease with whatever comes up during sessions. Love, bliss, so much appreciation for grace and beauty, some sorrow, tremendous gratitude and ecstatic joy are a few of my side effects from this weekend. I am very excited to see schools like Evolutionary Education being created. There is so much need for it!!! I wish for everyone to learn and experience what I did!

Studying with Nick has been a gift over the years. I always receive a thoughtful, engaging and mindful-based learning environment steeped in science. This investment is one that I first make in myself yet these gifts always impact my students in the studio and on retreat.

Although I have practiced and taught Yoga Nidra many times over the past 10 years, I had not taken a full in-depth, formal weekend devoted entirely to Yoga Nidra until taking Evolutionary Education's YNTT. I thoroughly enjoyed the experience and will recommend to others! Nick’s manual is concise and thorough and gives a wealth of information. His pace is slow and steady, allowing for time to settle and drop in. With a thorough background in psychology and yogic philosophy, he weaves both eastern discipline and western science beautifully into the weekend, giving depth to the experience. As our world keeps speeding up, it is even more important to “slow down” and include this practice in our lives. I was left empowered and inspired to continue to teach and practice this potent form of yoga. I am deeply grateful!

I've met several kindred spirits on my yoga journey that left an inspiring imprint on my life. Dr. Nick Atlas has embodied all of them and then some. He has a subtle approach combined with compassion and a world of knowledge, insight, and experience that will last a lifetime. Exploring the essence of yoga that resonates to my truest self. I will strive for my personal practice and teachings to continually incorporate some form of what I have learned and will continue to learn from him.

I recently completed Evolutionary Education’s Yoga Nidra Teacher Training Level 1  and the course was so practical and hands-on, that it gave me the confidence to start teaching Yoga Nidra classes right away to my community.  We had multiple opportunities to both receive and guide Yoga Nidra meditations and Nick's laid back yet deep style of teaching is all about finding your own Yoga Nidra voice. I highly recommend this class to anyone who is interested in learning more about this deeply relaxing and profound practice.

Nick is a gentle soul and, at the same time, he's very intense. Through that intense gentleness, he reaches out to individuals and brings them forward into a relationship with themselves. Through the guided meditations, through Yoga Nidra, even his presence in lecture is very calming and, at the same time, challenges you to stretch your mind a little bit further, to incorporate a little bit more, which is a real growth aspect. It was so intrinsic to being the netting that pulls all the classes and all the work together. The YPTT is a training that connects you with your spiritual hopes and desires. It connects you to your body and how it exists and works in the world, and it connects you to really being authentic in your life. If being authentic is not something that's comfortable for you, save your money, go elsewhere, find some other training, because this is going to bring you present into the real world.

I highly recommend Dr. Nick Atlas and Evolutionary Education for further teacher training. I recently completed the Yoga Nidra Teacher Training: Level 1 Course.  Before attending the class I had some exposure and knowledge of Yoga Nidra; however, I left the training having a much greater understanding and with an introduction to teaching.  I decided to take this Yoga Nidra training to further explore and deepen my personal practice, to find healing and restoration within and for myself, and eventually having that overflow onto others. It was exactly what I was hoping for, and what a wonderful experience.  Dr. Atlas is an excellent and gifted instructor, who is very knowledgeable on the subject and is present for, accessible and responsive to his students. The course materials provided are well written, clear and thorough, and are presented in a way that is easy to comprehend and remember based off of the training.  I have felt so many of the benefits from this teacher training as I have incorporated what I learned into my personal practice and now feel more confident to introduce to my students.  I plan to take his future Level 2 training.

I attended Yoga Nidra Teacher Training Level 1 in January of 2019. As a gentle and restorative yoga teacher, I wanted to incorporate the elements of Yoga Nidra into my classes. So when the opportunity arose for me to attend his teacher training, I knew it was my next step.  It was a wonderful weekend, filled with a perfect balance of meditative experience, the sharing of Nick’s knowledge and understanding, and opportunity to practice the skills he taught. I really love Nick's presence and the way he guides Yoga Nidra. He has a wonderful way of creating ease around him and inviting each person in the room to be just as they are. During the training, he gave space and time for ideas and understanding to arise. He answered all questions with thoughtful kindness, always offering his full attention to each question and person speaking. As we practiced new skills on each other, there was never a sense of being judged but plenty of opportunity to ask for clarity on something that was difficult. The whole experience was wonderful and I look forward to learning more from Nick in his advanced level Yoga Nidra trainings to come.

The Yoga Nidra Level 1 training with Nick Atlas is a transformational weekend! His approach to Yoga Nidra is methodical, yet relaxed. Just this approach in itself makes this Yoga Nidra training a pure joy to be a part of. This relaxed approach leaves more space as the practitioner, and as the student, more space for healing. Expansion. Love. The power in Yoga Nidra is evident being the student, but I found as I was the practitioner- there was a lot of healing for myself as well. Nick's background in psychology and dreams adds even more stock in the importance of sleep and yogic sleep at that. Personally, I took away from my weekend of training more peace, compassion for myself, and literal healing of wounds that I have been holding on to. Professionally, I learned how to safely hold space and how to guide students in and out of this beautiful sleep that could lead to a healing journey.

My experience in the 200-hr Yoga Psychology Teacher Training is a time I will always cherish. Because of the training, I now have a strong foundation and a place to go back to when life gets crazy and I'm no longer practicing as I desire to. You taught me a clear way to start with the breath, move into meditation, and then asana practice if I desire. You taught us what is important: awareness. The most unexpected positive I gained from the program were tools for stronger emotional health. I learned to sit with my pain, to embrace my "demons," to love and accept myself and, in turn, to embrace, love, and accept others as they are. It was a transformative experience, and it has propelled me onto a path toward a more open, loving, powerful me.

I would like to say thank you to Dr. Nick Atlas and Evolutionary Education for the wonderful experience I had in his Yoga Nidra training. Nick is a soft spoken, sweet soul who immediately made us all feel at ease. Our training group was a mix of mental health professionals and yoga teachers. The structure and content of the course was well organized, balanced and relevant for all of us. With Nick’s gentle spiritual supervision and attentiveness, I always felt safe to share and ask questions. As an Ashtanga trained yoga teacher, it was exciting to experience a new physical and emotional practice. My Yoga Nidra classes have been very fulfilling and I look forward to future training sessions with Dr. Nick.
