Yoga Nidra Teacher Training

Three days of nurturing, deep rest and inspiration. This yoga teacher training course will give you what you need to deepen your practice and expand your teaching horizons.

Yoga Nidra Teacher Training  | In-Studio & Live Streamed Online

13–15 October 2021 | led by Melanie Cooper & facilitated by Jennie Wadsten

This 3-day hybrid (live streamed and in-studio) immersive course is an opportunity to learn to teach the beautiful practice of Yoga Nidra, with two inspiring international teachers. Yoga Nidra is consider 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 in Yoga Nidra will cover the definition of Yoga Nidra along with the history, philosophy, science, modern schools, how to write scripts, ethics and personal practice. It will include: a detailed manual, online resources, scripts, and everything you need to get started teaching. Our approach is non-dogmatic and it’s important to us to see each person individually so you’ll get lots of individual feedback and ongoing support even after the course. 

As part of this 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 a helpful resource on how to implement what they have learnt in their classes and also as supportive space for what may arise whilst practising and teaching. Students can be mentored through whatever arises for them in relation to their teaching and practise and explore important themes such as cultural appropriation, self-care and ethics within the wellness world. The programme is also aimed at providing teachers with a supportive community held by experienced teachers and peer-to-peer support.

  • We recommend that you have done a 200-hour teacher training (any style) although this is not essential. Let us know if you haven’t and we will assess other experiences and whether the course is suitable. It is possible to attend the course for your own self enquiry and there is no pressure to teach if you do not wish to.
  • The intention is to give you, as a teacher, more tools, to broaden your teaching skills as well as your students. You may, for example, have done a training in a dynamic yoga style and would like to add a slow style of yoga to your teaching repertoire.
  • We have a set structure in line with Yoga Alliance’s criteria, but in addition to that we have some flexibility to tailor the course to YOU – and as far as we know, this is quite unique: for participants to able to influence course content.
