Learn to teach Restorative Yoga and Yoga Nidra

October is now fully-booked
New dates: 23rd-26th April 2020

This Course is Appropriate for:

Qualified yoga teachers, trainee yoga teachers, aspiring yoga teachers (although please be aware that you won’t be certified to teach classes until you have your 200 hour qualification).

Also for massage therapists, physiotherapists, body workers, counselors… in fact, anyone who works with minds and bodies, and who would like to deepen their understanding of the nervous system, the importance of rest, and the mind-body connection, including those who are keen to practice rest and relaxation at home, or to encourage friends and family to do so.

Stress, Anxiety and Depression are so prevalent in our society, often as a consequence of our culture of being ‘busy’,  bombarded by reasons to fill our time with activities and external stimulation that is neither nourishing nor nurturing  The practices of Restorative Yoga and Yoga Nidra help to counter-balance this,  guiding us towards clarity, peace and creativity, and ultimately more efficient use of our energy.

This training will take place at Goldendoor Yoga Studio in a small group of up to 10 people to maximise availability of props.

What the last group said:

“Dina’s so knowledgeable and generous with her knowledge. There was so much practice setting up poses for different bodies. And the led sessions in the morning were a fantastic way to start the day ” Holly

“I loved the relaxed, informal approach…enough structure alongside flexibility to have a balanced experience. So helpful hearing about Dina’s own experiences with each component and coming away with new skills, techniques which I can use personally and with others”  Anna

I had never practiced Yoga Nidra before and will definitely include it in my life and in my teachings” Zoe
