“Just wanted to say a huge thank you for the last three days. I can honestly say it’s the best training that I’ve been on. It was exactly what I needed and so much more than I’d hoped for on so many levels. It will take a while to process everything but I think I will be one of those moments that, when you look back, that you realise was a huge shift.”

- More than 1300 students have attended our Yoga Nidra course so far: either online or in person (and for the online courses: several cats & dogs as well) 🙂 It’s such a lovely community and we’re here to guide you & support AFTER the course as well.
- Experienced teachers: Melanie Cooper & Jennie Wadsten have over 45 years of teaching experience between them.
- You’ll get the same high quality content as in our in person Yoga Nidra courses – but taught through Zoom, as interactive webinars!
We also offer an optional meet up at a later date, so that we can get together in real life!

YOGA NIDRA ONLINE COURSES 2022
YOGA NIDRA IN STUDIO COURSES 2022
YOGA NIDRA ONLINE & IN STUDIO COURSES:
You will receive
Can I attend the Yoga Nidra course even if I’m not a yoga teacher?
Yes! You can attend the course and learn about the nurturing and healing benefits of Yoga Nidra just for yourself! You’ll not have to do any homework and you can skip the teaching practices.
You won’t get a certificate, but if you change your mind and DO want a certificate – you can complete these segments later.
Scroll down for more Frequently asked Questions or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions or concerns.
How do we do a Yoga Nidra course online?
We will use the software Zoom. Zoom is the leader in modern enterprise video communications, with an easy, reliable cloud platform for video and audio conferencing, chat, and webinars
You can read more here: https://zoom.us/
How will these sessions work?
The first thing we always do is to welcome everyone in a group, as we do on our trainings in a welcome ‘circle’. As in real life you can get to know each other a bit and get a sense of the group energy.
Then we have a series of talks on different aspects of Yoga Nidra via powerpoint presentation live link, working in line with your manual, which you will receive via email.
For your teaching practice you will be split into smaller groups with one teacher and two or three students. Melanie and Jennie will be able to “pop in” to your group to listen in and give feedback (if you request this). If you prefer to do the teaching practice in person, you can do it as a homework and record it and send it to us – or meet up with us in real life in the autumn.
We understand it can be very hard work to listen and watch the screen for long periods so we will include plenty of breaks and a chance to get up and stretch and move (we need this too!)
Can I ask questions?
We always welcome questions! These can be posed via the chat function in Zoom, where you can also chat to each other and share ideas. There is also a facility to “raise you hand” and ask a question verbally.
After each session we will collate the questions and circulate within the group.
What if I’m a total technophobe?
Nothing in the technical online stuff is hard to do. We have done test runs with people we know who have very little/no experience and they all managed it fine! We will send full instruction before the course and we can work it out together.
I’m not a huge fan of working online…
We understand some people are very used to working in this way and some people are very resistant to video meetings (Jennie was until very recently – now she’s a natural!) So, in a similar way to our in person trainings, there is no pressure on you to talk if you don’t want to, you don’t have to do the practice teaching if you don’t want to – we are here to support you and help you have a nurturing time – not to put you on the spot or make you feel uncomfortable. If you have any concerns about any of this, talk to us in advance and we can sort it out.
My house is super noisy!
Some people have expressed concerns about noise/disturbance in the background. Most of the time when you’re listening you will be on mute – so no one can hear what’s happening in the background, and if a pet or child runs around a bit that’s very welcome! If you can’t get quiet to do your teaching practice it’s possible for us to re-schedule it at a time that suits you. So that shouldn’t be a problem.
Then there’s also GDPR: it’s against data protection regulations to record and share events without the permission of ALL participants.
You’ll get a completely comprehensive Yoga Nidra manual – so if you miss a session or want to repeat something after the course – no worries! Everything is in the manual!
It’s all in the manual!
Our course manual is a work of many years – it has been moulded and shaped into quite the in depth and detailed guide so if you do miss anything – it’s all in there and we would be happy to discuss anything you might have missed later on.
What happens if I miss a session?
If you miss just a couple of hours in total: no problem! Just let us know beforehand and we’ll let you know which chapters to read in the manual.
If you miss more: you’re more than welcome to join the course with another group later on.
– 1 day or less
You can make it up for free!
– More than 1 day:
You can make it up for an admin fee of 50 GBP
If you want to repeat the whole course you are very welcome for just an admin fee of 50 GBP!
Can we meet up in person?
We very much believe that in person work it very important so we will be offering a “real life” meet up in 2022 in Stockholm and London. This will be a chance to discuss any experiences, ask questions and get to know each other better. There will be time to give and receive Yoga Nidra with feedback if requested. We will just charge a nominal amount to cover the cost of room hire.
We sincerely hope you will meet us online soon and in real life further down the line
Any questions let us know – as always we are here for you
Melanie & Jennie
