Meridian Nidra en_edited.jpg

The Yoga Alliance accredited teacher training course offers participants an introduction to Meridian Nidra. The 50-hour course will include elements of both theory and practice.

Meridian Nidra is a practice that combines two arts, Yoga Nidra and Traditional Chinese Medicine (TMC). During the Meridin Nidra practice, we will stimulate the energy channels that, according to TMC, transport the life energy Qi. We will deepen our knowledge of the Anatomy of the Lower Limb and use asana positions from the Yin yoga repertoire.

Yoga Nidra

Yoga Nidra is a conscious state between wakefulness and sleep enabling deep relaxation. It is an ancient yogic and tantric practice of conscious relaxation of the body, mind and soul. In Yoga Nidra, it appears that we are asleep, but consciousness is still functioning on a deeper level.

Practice gives us the tools to gain a deeper understanding of ourselves as complex, sometimes conflicted, multidimensional beings. In this course, I will guide you through the philosophy and science behind this fascinating practice.

(Yoga Nidra is the trademark of the Satyananda Bihar school of yoga and this course follows its methodology.)

Yin Yoga

Yin yoga, due to its uniqueness, is gaining more and more circles of yoga enthusiasts. Its meditative, calming, and perhaps even therapeutic effects are wonderful for many modern practitioners. The very popular practice of Yin Yoga can be both a perfect complement to more dynamic forms of movement and a very rich practice in itself.

Meridian Nidra

Meridian Nidra is a combination of Yin Yoga, Yoga Nidra and Chinese Medicine. In Meridian Nidra, the most important component is becoming familiar with the paths of energy channels and their TMC properties.

Anatomy of the Lower Limb

This module will introduce you to the anatomy of a limb, the part most commonly classified in Yin yoga. This is a part of the body that is of great importance, primarily in terms of stability, but also body mobility. The goal is to become familiar with the elements of this part of the body and how to work safely and functionally as a teacher.

After completing the entire course, participants will receive a YA certificate and a ready-made script for practice.
