Welcome to this 2 day immersion course with Uma Dinsmore-Tuli, visiting us for the first time from UK. This is a rare opportunity to dive in to the wonderful world of Yoga Nidra, course is open for anyone and everyone curious!
Awaken your consciousness of sleep and dream through the tantric practice of expanded awareness for lucid living. Become alive to the source of well-being, happiness and purpose in every dimension of life.

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.

This Yoga Nidra Immersion 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 may have encountered other partial or limited forms of the practice to meet the full spectrum of approaches to yoga nidra.

Topics Covered Include

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:
