Total Yoga Nidra Immersion


Comparative and creative forms of Yoga Nidra

Awaken your consciousness of sleep and dream through the tantric practice of expanded awareness for lucid living. Become alive to the source of well-being, happiness, and purpose in every dimension of life.

We understand yoga nidra to be the most transformative, potent and remarkably adaptive of all yoga practices. Yoga nidra is in fact not really a single practice, but rather an experience of altered states of consciousness, essentially meditative experiences that can be used therapeutically for healing, as well as to enhance creativity and productivity and to improve sleep and general health.


The Total Yoga Nidra Immersion Experience is a self-contained and complete retreat style immersion (non-residential) open to anyone with an interest in experiencing Total Yoga Nidra. It is both a standalone weekend course that covers all the fundamentals of Total Yoga Nidra, as well as being a pre-requisite for moving on to the full Total Yoga Nidra Teacher and Facilitator Training. The intention of this part of the course is to offer an accessible and profound immersion in the experience of Total Yoga Nidra, providing a perfect opportunity for those who have encountered other partial or limited forms of the practice to meet the full spectrum of approaches to yoga nidra.

We are gathering at the beautiful St. Laurentius church owned by YogaToday Church in Amsterdam-Weesp, only a 15-minute train ride from Amsterdam Central Station. The stunning church is transformed into a fully equipped yoga studio, offering you all the comfort you need for this training. During your lunch break, you can have a stroll along the picturesque canals in Weesp. There are different lunch options and stores, or you can enjoy the weather sitting on one of the terraces by the water.
