Kamini Desai, PhD, is a leading teacher of yoga nidra.
Desai is president and developer of the core program curriculum of the Amrit Yoga Institute, where she developed the first 90-hour Yoga Alliance recognized yoga nidra professional training program in collaboration with her father, Yogi Amrit Desai. Together, they have created an exciting body of teachings on the lost art of yoga nidra, combining Eastern philosophy with Western psychology and medical science. Kamini Desai holds degrees in anthropology and psychology from Smith College and La Salle University.
Yogi Amrit Desai, founder of Amrit Yoga Institute and the Amrit Method® of Yoga and Yoga Nidra, is an internationally recognized authority on yoga and holistic living. Widely acknowledged for carrying the authentic voice of yoga to the world, he has been honored both in the United States and abroad. One of his many distinguished titles is the rare Vishwa Yoga Ratna, awarded by the President of India.
Yogi Desai began teaching yoga in 1960, making him one of the earliest pioneers of yoga in the West. Following a profound life-transforming Kundalini awakening, he developed a methodology that altered the popular notion of yoga as a physical discipline and reintroduced a spiritual dimension to the practice of hatha yoga. He named this approach Kripalu Yoga: Meditation in Motion, in honor of his guru, Swami Kripalvanandji.
The yoga society Yogi Desai founded eventually grew to become the Kripalu Center for Yoga and Health, one of the largest centers of its kind in America. The methodology he developed has evolved into the Amrit Method, which he continues to refine. Today, his approach is practiced by thousands of people around the world, and has certified teachers in 37 countries.

Donna Eden, a pioneer in the field of holistic healing, is among the world’s most sought after, most joyous, and most authoritative spokespersons for energy medicine. Her abilities as a healer are legendary and her invigorating presentations are rich with audience participation and stunning demonstrations.
Since childhood, Eden has been able to see the flow of the body’s energies, and from this clairvoyant ability, she developed a system for teaching others to productively work with their own body’s energies. Eden has taught some 50,000 people worldwide how to methodically and precisely direct energy for health and happiness, using methods akin to acupressure, therapeutic touch, and qigong.
Eden is author (with her husband, David Feinstein) of the best-selling book, Energy Medicine, which has been translated into 12 languages, and is a classic in its field. According to Carolyn Myss, “The contribution Donna Eden has made with Energy Medicine will stand as one of the backbone studies as we lay a sound foundation for the field of holistic medicine.”
