This three-day immersion into Yoga Nidra is an opportunity to learn to teach the beautiful practice of Yoga Nidra, with two inspiring international teachers, Melanie Cooper and Jennie Wadsten.
Yoga Nidra is considered by some to be the meditative heart of yoga, where deep transformation is possible when we enter the enchanting space between waking and dreaming. This training course will cover the definition of Yoga Nidra along with the history, philosophy, science, modern schools, how to write scripts, and everything you need to get started teaching. Our approach is non-dogmatic and it's important to us to have an individual approach, so you'll get lots of feedback and ongoing support even after the course has finished. The emphasis is on empowering you to find YOUR authentic way of teaching Yoga Nidra and to obtain knowledge to see what is needed for different students; there isn’t one size fits all for this practice (or any style really!).
As part of the course, students are offered small group mentoring sessions (max 10 people per group) every second month for up to a year. Those who are teaching often find mentoring an invaluable resource that helps them to implement what they have learnt in their classes. The sessions also provide a supportive space for whatever may arise in relation to your teaching and practice. Important themes such as cultural appropriation, self care and ethics will be explored. The programme is also aimed at providing teachers with a supportive community held by experienced teachers and peer-to-peer support.
By the end of the course, participants will have a deeper understanding of Nidra as a practice and will have had an opportunity to reconnect with their own practice and recharge. Qualified yoga teachers will be equipped to begin teaching this deeply rejuvenating and meditative practice.
