Yoga Nidra Teacher Training with Mel Cooper
January 21 @ 11:00 am - January 24 @ 5:00 pm£300 – £495
Yoga Nidra Teacher Training Course – in person OR online
Chance to dive deeper into a subject of your choice to get an additional 10 hours.
A tailored teacher training course focusing on your interests.
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.
Online or in person at Wild Wolf, Bristol
Optional: we´ll meet up in the autumn for a one day workshop (in Stockholm and London), if you´d also like to meet us in person and get more feedback, support etc. Price: donation based.
We recommend that you have done a 200 hour teacher training (any style) but this is not mandatory! If you haven’t: send us an email and let us know and we will look into what other experiences you have and we’ll give you extra support during the course.
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 – to be able to teach back to back classes at studios and retreats?
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 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 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.
A detailed look at each stage of the practice; the intention behind it and how it affects the body and mind.
How to adapt your teaching for different students
Basic science of Yoga Nidra.
Brainwaves, Hypnagogia, Basic anatomy of the brain, states of consciousness

If you join in studio, a hard copy manual is included in the course fee.

We use the term Homework loosely here, there is a requirement of 10 hours of learning outside of the course, some will be written but mostly to establish a Yoga Nidra Practice (students have said that this is their favourite ever homework!)
No written tests or “performance” required, rather, we are interested in seeing that you have gained an understanding and knowledge that you can apply to each individual student depending on their needs. This course is intended to spark your interest in embarking on or continuing this fascinating journey.
