Total Yoga Nidra Immersion Experience


The Total Yoga Nidra Immersion Experience is a self-contained and complete retreat style immersion (non-residential) open to anyone with an interest in experiencing Total Yoga Nidra. It is both a standalone weekend course that covers all the fundamentals of Total Yoga Nidra, as well as being a pre-requisite for moving on to the full Total Yoga Nidra Teacher and Facilitator Training. The intention of this part of the course is to offer an accessible and profound immersion in the experience of Total Yoga Nidra, providing a perfect opportunity for those who have encountered other partial or limited forms of the practice to meet the full spectrum of approaches to yoga nidra.

We understand yoga nidra to be the most transformative, potent and remarkably adaptive of all yoga practices. Yoga nidra is in fact not really a single practice, but rather an experience of altered states of consciousness, essentially meditative experiences which can be used therapeutically for healing, as well as to enhance creativity and productivity and to improve sleep and general health. 

We invite feedback from all our students - if you'd like to know what they're saying about this course then we're delighted to share it with you.

What will I learn?


A combination of theory and practice to give you a sound foundation (or to deepen your existing foundation) of understanding about what yoga nidra is in the broadest sense, and how it works, together with plenty of live, responsive and practical experiences of a full range of yoga nidra.

We will cover:

  • Welcome to Yoga Nidra
  • History and Development
  • Intentions, and How They Shape the Practice
  • Comparative Structures
  • Comparative Rotations of Consciousness
  • The Science of Yoga Nidra
  • The Philosophy of Yoga Nidra
  • Liminality & Creativity
  • Sleep, Memory & Dreams
  • Trance: Hypnosis & Yoga Nidra
  • Yoga Nidra as a Meditative Practice
  • Sankalpa
  • Sound, Yoga Nidra & Bhakti Yoga 
  • Growing your Own Practice

The course/retreat comprises ten contact teaching hours, of which at least five hours are practical yoga nidra experiences, plus there is optional personal listening homework of 20 minutes daily. 

The Total Yoga Nidra Immersion Experience is the pre-requisite for the full Total Yoga Nidra Teacher & Facilitator Training. Once you have completed this course, you will be eligible to start the full Teacher Training if you choose to.
