“I have wanted to take a course in Yoga Nidra for quite a long time and I am so happy and grateful that I had the opportunity to attend to one with Jennie Wadsten & Melanie Cooper!  Three days of laughter, recognition & wisdom – I couldn’t ask for more. Your heartfullness shines through everything. I  feel safe and confident in passing the lovely techniques of Yoga Nidra on to my students.”
– Marina, Sweden 

Tuesdays for 9 weeks – starting 23 June 

FULLY BOOKED – but we have a waiting list and there might be a chance of getting a last minute space! Contact us for details! 🙂

This course will be taught as a live, interactive webinar online! 

We’ll also have an in person meet-up in London and Stockholm in the autumn, as an optional part of the course, if you want a follow up or extra support. Date to be announced.

The course is in English.

You will receive

  • A 30 hour diploma in Yoga Nidra, registered by Yoga Alliance (RYS-300)
  • Option to add an extra 10 hours with a deep dive into a subject of your choice
  • A tailormade teacher training focusing on what you would like to dive deeper into. Tell us what you are interested in and we will weave it into the training or make it part of your individual homework.
  • Plenty of time to reconnect with your own practice, and to recharge if you’re feeling drained.
  • Support from non dogmatic and experienced teachers: the empashis 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!)
  • Chance to practice teaching with expert constructive and supportive feedback


Tuesday 23 June – Tuesday 18 August 2020

This course will take place on Tuesday evenings from 6 – 8 pm (UK time) followed by an optional Sleep Well Yoga Nidra practice 9 – 9.30 pm. 

If you miss a session you can easily make it up: either by joining another group (free of charge!) or by privates with us for a reduced rate.


Online: in the comfort of your own home! 

For whom?

We recommend that you have done a 200 hour teacher training (any style) but it’s not necessary: let us know if you haven’t and we will look into what other experiences you have. You can also attend the course for your own self inquiry only: no need to put the pressure on yourself to teach if you don’t want to.

The intention is to give you, as a teacher, more tools, to broaden your teaching skills as well as your target groups. Perhaps you have done a training in a dynamic yoga style and would like to add a slow style to your teaching menu as well?

We have a set structure in line with Yoga Alliance’s criteria, but on top of that we have a certain amount of hours that we can tailor made for YOU – and as far as we know, this is quite unique: for you, as participants, to be able to take part in forming the course content!

We (Melanie and Jennie) have worked together for over 10 years (yoga teacher trainings and retreats in India and Europe) and have 20+ vs 15 years of experience from teaching yoga and teacher trainings full time.

We have experienced a lot over the years – and what we keep coming back to is how important it is to be authentic, to find “your voice” as a teacher and to have the courage to be YOURSELF when you are teaching! Working as a yoga teacher is amazing – but it also takes a lot of energy – and can be very draining if you are not looking after yourself. (And it’s so easy to not give ourselves that time/attention/selfcare – so in the training we will also put emphasis on how to create space for your own health and practice: to stay balanced and mentally strong!

We will cover

  • A non-dogmatic approach. We will cover the main techniques and modern schools of Yoga Nidra and what they offer. You’ll get the chance to compare and explore different methods to see which works the best for you.
  • Yoga Nidra scripts. Online resources: You’ll get ready made scripts in different methods. Together we will also explore and develop a treasure trove of ideas and scripts for teaching your own yoga nidra – as well as incorporating it in your own practice.
  • The structure A detailed look at each stage of the practice; the intention behind it and how it affects the body and mind.
  • Modifications. Contra-indications. How to adapt your teaching for different students
  • Basic science of Yoga Nidra. Brainwaves, Hypnagogia, Basic anatomy of the brain, states of consciousness
  • History & Philosophy
  • Stress & Burnout
  • Your own practice
