Yoga Nidra is often loosely translated as ‘psychic sleep’. It is a profound practice that works on our ability to absorb information through our subconscious. In this 100hr course we introduce a range of subtle practices aimed to open and balance your energy centers and activate your latent energy. After practicing Yoga Nidra seriously you will begin to notice huge changes in yourself – feeling more energized and quickly entering meditative states. Over the duration of the course you will observe your personality transform, becoming a friend, philosopher and spiritual guide to whoever crosses your path in life.
Who can join?
This program is open to anyone with a genuine interest and desire to learn more about this fascinating branch of yoga. Because of the gentle nature of the practice, you don’t need any prior yoga experience. It may be helpful if you have already completed another teacher training, but it is by no means a requirement.

- Yogic Anatomy: three bodies, five layers of human personality, chakras, the energy centers.

- Chakra based Meditation with Cosmic Energy.
- Classical Meditation connecting with Cosmic Energy
- Importance of a value based lifestyle
- Encouragement in keeping a spiritual diary
- Detailed, step by step explanation of Yoga Nidra

Accommodation and Food
Our priority is to provide you with comfortable, safe and clean accommodation that is located close to the yoga shala. Rooms are either shared between two people, or private, depending on your preference. Our simple, cosy rooms are the perfect respite for rest and relaxation. Step out of your door straight into nature, and fall asleep with the sound of the ocean, or trees blowing in the breeze. Warm, salty breeze from the ocean or the fresh air with its mountain energy will fill your soul with happiness and calm.
We provide 3 healthy, energy-boosting meals per day, from Monday to Saturday. Sunday is a holiday for staff and students and we encourage you to try some of the delicious food on offer in the surrounding area. Our kitchen staff pride themselves on their local, fresh, seasonally-appropriate ingredients. We aim to give you all the energy you need for this intensive time. Let us nourish your soul and fill your body with prana-supporting meals!
Karma Yoga (selfless service)
In the weekdays you will be engaged in voluntary karma yoga. This will be a short time either before or after classes. Karma Yoga, the Yoga of selfless action, will help you to learn and practice yoga holistically.
