It will take place over five 4 hour sessions, with the time in between devoted to study and practice. A certificate of completion will be awarded at the end of the course and is intended to form a separate and complementary module to a pre-existing teacher training. A 108-page teachers handbook that collects all the course notes and scripts will also be given.
The aim of the course is to understand the theory and science underlying the practice, examining its history and development, and to be able to adapt and deliver Yoga Nidra appropriately. This teacher training module, created and taught by Matsyendra, offers an analytical and methodical approach to Yoga Nidra that gives a solid foundation and the necessary keys to be able to integrate it competently into a class. It’s an ideal way of concluding a class and is accessible to almost everyone, as the only requirement is to lie still on the back for some time and follow the guidance with interest. As a therapeutic tool, numerous medical studies demonstrate that it has both a curative and preventative effect on a number of conditions, such as stress, anxiety, frustration, insomnia, high blood pressure, PTSD, and their consequences.
