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 on 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. 

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

Through moving 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.

You will learn how to integrate the 5 elements into a Yoga Nidra script, which is based on a specific order to dive into the sheets of the mind, where our awareness fluctuates from conscious, to the subconscious, to deeper conscious (the most subtle sheet 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 to 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 into the present moment, which is the expression of living beyond any suffering caused by stored past trauma; at which point we are in harmony.

The 5 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 the 5 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 them.

the effect of all of life’s impulses in our inner world, we can bring harmony in body & mind.

This 50-hour training for teachers will bring you:

- 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

- More foundation on yoga philosophy

During this training for yoga teachers (requirement: having followed a 200-hours yoga teacher training), participants will get trained in a step-by-step systematic and scientific procedure of the Yoga Nidra practice. You will learn how to create a well-structured, specifically-themed Yoga Nidra class, so you can integrate it into your teachings, and gain knowledge about sleep, dreams, and the control centres of the brain.

The training consists of 5 practical days of 8 hours, plus 10 hours of assessments to be done at home. These 50 hours in total count towards 50 hours of Continuing Education and can be registered with Yoga Alliance.
