After my first visit to the Satyananda Yoga Centre, I knew that I wanted to learn Yoga Nidra from this school of yoga.  For six months, we gradually learnt and understood this beautiful deep relaxation and meditation practice.  All through this study period I felt 100% supported, reassured and encouraged by the teachers and by the programme.  Homework helped us to try our new skills on our students and if we needed support, Yagnamurti, Brahmananda or Katyayani were always available to help us through questions and this, sometimes, difficult journey.  This course offered the ability to give something very precious and invaluable to anyone who wants a true life-changing experience.  I highly recommend this course to anyone who would like to seriously study Yoga Nidra and its effects.

I found the Yoga Nidra course quite a game changer, both professionally and personally… you will never stop appreciating the benefits of Yoga Nidra and will continue learning.  Enjoy.
