Explore & Develop Your Practice
4 weeks from Tuesday 3 November, 6:30-9pm via Zoom
Are you looking to deepen your understanding of your yoga practice? To explore a little more key concepts like anatomy, alignment, philosophy, breath & meditation? Join Yoga Harriet for a 4-week series of exploratory, collaborative and community-focussed workshops.
Week 1. Understanding Alignment
Week 2. Building Strength & mobility
Week 3. Exploring breath and meditation
Week 4. Self practice & intro to yoga philosophy
This course is for anyone looking to explore and develop their practice: great for students, teachers, trainees, and those thinking about diving into teacher training.
Each session starts with an hour of practice, then we have 90 mins of lecture/discussion. You have lifetime access to an online classroom dedicated to your group, where we share lots of resources, PDFs and links.
Here is what a recent student had to say about the course:
“Thank you so much for running the four week course! I have absolutely loved it and the time has flown by. I knew I wanted to learn more about yoga but wasn’t sure where to start and it can feel intimidating to explore books or teachings if you’re not a yoga teacher. I definitely had imposter syndrome, thinking ‘I can’t possibly do a yoga course, I have to rest in sun salutations and can’t do lots of poses!’ This course was fantastic for that: I felt really welcome, and have a much clearer idea of the areas I want to explore in more depth now, and some reading suggestions for them. I loved doing a yoga practice before each discussion, which was brilliant for switching gears to focus on the course, and enjoyed the varying practices depending on the topic (especially all the variations of movement in the strength and mobility week). It made the theory seem much more accessible and relevant.
What I appreciated most though was being encouraged to unpick what yoga means to me – I was feeling a bit stuck before, especially in feeling resistant about home practice, but I’ve realised so much during the course about why I practise yoga and have a new perspective on it.”

Leading Simple Yoga Nidras
with Theo Wildcroft
5 weeks from Thursday 19 November, 6:30-9:30pm via Zoom
Leading students into a state of rest is a subtle, profound art. It is also a skill that can be learned. When we understand the roots, development and structure at the heart of practices like savasana and yoga nidra, we can hold a much safer, inclusive space to welcome our students into resting well together.
This training has been carefully designed to train yoga teachers in offering simple yoga nidras comfortably, confidently, and creatively.
This module is offered as part of the 300 hour teacher training, but can be taken by any teacher wishing to improve their skills in this area as Continuing Professional Development (CPD). The module will run as five weekly sessions of three hours, and combine theory, practice and skills development.
1. Recipes for rest – how rest is experienced, barriers to rest, getting creative to help our students find rest
2. History of yoga nidra – from pre-modern origins to recent techniques, and managing student trust and safety
3. The structure of yoga nidra – a simplified structure for creating safe and simple practices, and techniques for grounding and post-practice comfort
4. Mapping the territory – exploring koshas, tattvas, chakras, European holism and other maps that have been used to understand the nidra ‘landscape’
5. Getting creative – finding inspired and responsive ways to offer the practice without getting out of your depth
Nourish Yoga Training’s 300 hour Advanced Teacher Training is registered with Yoga Alliance (International), and is completed as a series of standalone modules which can be taken over 3 years. More modules are forthcoming in 2021.
There are limited spaces available. As this course focusses on preparing you to deliver yoga nidra, live attendance is required. You are able to miss one session and a recorded session can be provided for the missed module only at no further cost. If you need to miss the final week, which includes a teaching practice and feedback session, a catch up session maybe be provided at the trainer’s discretion, and will incur an extra charge.
Sliding scale pricing: £139/£169/£199 (no further discounts applicable)
