Yoga‌ ‌Nidra‌ ‌&‌ ‌Healing‌ ‌the‌ ‌Inner‌ ‌Elements:‌ ‌A‌ ‌50-Hour‌ ‌Training‌ ‌for‌ ‌Teachers‌

With Moena de Jong

In this 50-hour training for yoga teachers, you will refine your knowledge of advanced skills in guiding your students during Yoga Nidra: the magical journey that expresses the art of relaxation and achieving a state of deeper awareness.


Yoga Nidra (or Yogic sleep practice) means “sleep with a trace of awareness”. It is a state of mind between wakefulness and dream. During the practice of Nidra, our consciousness travels from one layer of consciousness to another.

What you will learn:

In this advanced training for teachers, you will explore the connection between the different stages of consciousness and the relationship with the 5 senses.


As we move between the several layers of the mind, we explore the characteristics of the 5 elements (connected with the 5 senses), and we will integrate each element into the Nidra practice.


Moena de Jong will teach you how to integrate the 5 elements into a Yoga Nidra script, which is based on a specific order to dive into the layers of the mind, where our awareness fluctuates from consciousness to subconsciousness, to deeper consciousness (the most subtle layer where our higher awareness can be revealed).


Every day of this study, we will focus on one specific element.


As the inner view gets more clear, we can balance all the input that constantly comes in through the senses (smell, taste, sight, touch, hearing) which relate with the 5 elements: Earth, Water, Fire, Air & Ether.


Bringing the outer and inner world together in balance, helps us to understand our desires, habits and aversions. It brings us in the present moment, which is the expression of living beyond any suffering caused by stored past trauma; at which point we are in harmony.



These five elements are interdependent transformations of consciousness, matter, and energy. They occur in the outside worlds but also inside of us. Each perception or sensation we experience is made out of a pattern of these elements.


Due to life’s circumstances and the constant changes, the effect is felt even in the most subtle form as the elements get out of balance. By understanding the qualities and relationships of the elements and recognizing the effect of all of life’s impulses in our inner world, harmony in body and mind can be brought about.

Key Takeaways

This 50-hour training for teachers will provide you with:

  • Knowledge of the characteristics of the elements and how they control our behaviour and determine our spiritual development
  • A deeper understanding of how to integrate specific themes in an intelligent matter in a Yoga Nidra script
  • A profound insight into the relationship between the elements, the senses and the layers of the mind
  • A stronger foundation on yoga philosophy
