Yoga Nidra
Teacher Training

with Tamara Skyhawk

Perfect for Yoga Teachers, Energy Workers & Wellness Professionals 

Dive deeply within. Emerge changed.

Yoga Nidra is a recently in-demand guided meditation practice, typically done lying in savasana. It allows us to deeply rest and restore our bodies and minds, as well as refresh and reshape our personality, tendencies and ultimately, our destiny.

In this course you’ll learn how to not only “read” yoga nidra scripts, but to lead profound, well-informed yoga nidra experiences, appropriate to the time, place and participants.

This course is open for anyone who’d like to practice and/or teach this beautiful, profoundly healing modality.

Live online via zoom.

Join us live online from the cozy comfort of your own home. It's the best way to fall deeply into your Yoga Nidra practice – free from distractions and in a familiar environment.

I attended Yoga Ghar's Yoga Nidra Teacher Training remotely, in real time via zoom.  The commute meant it would have been a little difficult to attend in person, since I live in the UK and Tamara is in Canada, but the sessions were set up perfectly and exceeded my expectations. It was an excellent blend of information, inspiration and application.  Full of passion and a wealth of experience, Tamara delivered the training in a way that felt empowering and gave me the confidence to guide my students through their Nidra practise.

I had taken two other Yoga Nidra trainings in the past. In each, I felt like something was missing. This course filled in all the gaps for me and more. I not only now have a much more solid foundation and understanding, there’s been a huge increase in my confidence for teaching and my love for the practice. Thank you Tamara for this fantastic course!

I am so happy I chose to study and complete my Yoga Nidra YTT with Yoga Ghar. Without any previous knowledge of Yoga Nidra, I was not only able to develop a personal practice but I was also able to explore and practice the philosophy, science and practice of Yoga Nidra in a way that can be used to help teach others. Can't recommend Yoga Ghar and Tamara enough; seeds are constantly being planted and bloom in the most unexpected ways. It's great to know there is a true community of knowledgeable yoga teachers with Yoga Ghar to work through and continue to understand all that Yoga is.
