Safety in Yoga Nidra & Relaxation for Yoga Therapy | ONLINE

Safety in Yoga Nidra & Relaxation for Yoga Therapy is a two-day intensive module, designed and recommended for all Yoga teachers and Yoga Therapy trainees for the safe, respectful delivery of Yoga Nidra and relaxation practices.

Recent studies show that Yoga Nidra, relaxation practices and meditation may not be safe for everyone. They might have unwanted side-effects, in cases when your student suffers from certain physical or mental health issues, so we need to learn to deliver these techniques in a responsible way.

In this module, you will learn to recognise the signs that may indicate when these practices could be contraindicated for your student, and how to approach any challenging situations that might arise.

Yoga Nidra for Yoga Therapy


Students will learn the basic skills of delivering Yoga Nidra in a safe, therapeutic environment under the experienced guidance of Montserrat G. Mukherjee C-IAYT and Suze Retera.

Inspired by the teachings of Dr Uma Dinsmore-Tuli and Nirlipta Tuli, founders of Yoga Nidra Network and augmented by the practical Yoga Therapy experience of the faculty at The Yoga Therapy Institute.
