Module 1 - Immersion of two days

A pre-teacher training course taught over a single weekend, this module is an intensive workshop that has been designed for anyone who wants to better understand the theoretical underpinnings and practice of Yoga Nidra. Nidra lovers, teachers, psychologists, doctors, healers and anyone else with a curiosity for Nidra is invited to attend. However, please note, while this section acts as an introduction to the teacher training, and is open to teachers and beginners alike, it does not alone provide you with the materials for teaching.

In this section you will look into the different structures of Nidra, its history, philosophy and what happens to the brain functions and consciousness when it’s in the deep Nidra state. You will also discuss the difference between Nidra and hypnosis as well as various applications of themes, as methods to achieve different goals. Finally, you will gain a greater understanding of these different branches of Nidra and their blissful effect on your body and mind as you participate in several intensive practice sessions, learning in conjunction with how to build your own practice and integrate the Yoga Nidra experience into your everyday personal life.

In this module, Sarvanga Flow just wants you to get absorbed in the Nidra practice, and you will perform between 8 to 12 Nidras, depending on the evolution and requirements that arise during the weekend. As one of the experiences of this immersion in Nidra is to understand and observe the interconnection with vibrations we have invited Jullie to be playing into a magical Nidra with crystal bowls.

Module 2 - Nidra Teacher Training

Teaching the practice of expanding awareness. In the second module, you will continue with the progression through a combination of theory and practice, expanding on the concepts touched upon in the introductory section so that you will gain a broad understanding of all the facets of Yoga Nidra and the tools that you require to teach safely and with confidence.

You will study the different lineages and structures of Nidra, from the time of its origin to the various methods and techniques of today, while delving deeper into the physiology and psychology of the form in relation to the teaching practice. In turn, we will address all of the various practical elements of developing and supporting a class in an instructional environment, equipping you with the necessary skills along the way.

As the first foundation, you will learn how to provide a safe environment; what the dangers are and what to avoid. You will be taught how to prepare a positive Nidra script and how to set an intention and theme, adapted to each individual and group, and free from the influential language so as to allow your students to model their own experiences and embody the truths which are their own.

This training will involve some dedication and self-study. It is not only about learning how to teach but will be a deeper journey of your own. You will be required to practice daily and record your observations, and we will get to know and open ourselves to the group – in a certain moment engaging together in a creative practice of liberation to find, plant and nurture our own seeds of self-realization.

You will experience Nidra intensely and in different forms, with additional teachers invited to share special settings such as Nidra 2 voices, singing bowls, and mantras. Ultimately, you will share your own script and run through Nidra and Art-Therapy exercises to uncover the layers that hide your Sankalpa, providing an intense journey into yourself and a blissful inner-discovery.
