This 25 hour training, now available via live stream, is designed for teachers and students – and delves deeper into yoga nidra. Yoga nidra can be used for many purposes, which include deep relaxation, to release what lies in the sub conscious and unconscious and to experience an expanded state of consciousness.
In this training we will:
- Study the science behind yoga nidra and look more deeply into the nine steps of yoga nidra developed by Mona Anand and Alan Finger. Participants will experience, design, discuss and practice teaching each of the nine steps.
- Learn how to integrate yoga nidra into asana and restorative classes.
- Design short and long yoga nidra practices for stress management, depression, anxiety and insomnia.
- Delve deeper into how yoga nidra can be used for pain management and healing.
Dates: Nov 1 – 3, 2022
Times (est): TBA
A certificate of completion for this program will be issued to those who have successfully completed the written assignment and attended all of the 25 hours of the course.

~ Mark Waterman, Massage Therapist, Marama Trainer, Yoga Teacher
“I am so grateful for having taken Mona’s Yoga Nidra training at ISHTA! I have a regular practice of yoga nidra, both when I take her classes and in my own practice. So, being able to delve more deeply into the practice was a gift for me. Mona’s training is immensely beneficial to yoga teachers, who want to incorporate yoga nidra in to our classes, as well as students who simply want to incorporate yoga nidra in to their own lives. In the training, we were given a lot of really helpful information on the individual steps that make up yoga nidra, as well as scientific reasons behind why and how it works. All fascinating! Also, Mona offers a lot of sequencing options as well as suggestions for shorter and longer practices. I was so happy to learn more about how to use yoga nidra in the context of energetic imbalances as well as therapeutic applications like PTSD, chronic pain, and emotional and sleep issues. We had lots of opportunities to practice on each other, which was so helpful. We also had daily yoga nidra practices, which allowed us to experience all we were learning first hand… Plus they were led by Mona, which is a treat unto itself. Mona manages to. weave all of this wonderful information together in a fun, practical, and very creative manner. Her brilliance in her knowledge of all these areas is so profoundly inspiring and her enthusiasm and presence are always a sheer delight. Thank you, Mona”

“The Yoga Nidra Teacher Training is the most valuable speciality teacher training I have taken. As a yoga teacher, the tools offered by Mona Anand in this training have been very important in many parts of how I structure my classes, from how I bring my students into a state of focus and good feeling, to the final relaxation. My Yoga Nidra practice has transformed my life, I am able to calm down and sleep better, as well as be more present in daily life. I am so grateful that this training is offered.”
~ Jenny Bloom, ISHTA Yoga Teacher, RYT-500
“When the yoga nidra training was announced, I couldn’t sign up quickly enough. After having completed the 300hr ISHTA training with Mona as my mentor and having a taste of “Mona Anand’s ISHTA Yoga Nidra” technique as part of that training, I was eager to spend more time with both. The transmission of this work from Mona to her students is nothing short of magical. Her tremendous knowledge and insights of yoga coupled with her well-known humor is a potent combination. However, when the transmission is yoga nidra there is something almost other-wordly that occurs. Her passion for this work is in every word she speaks, whether one is being guided through a yoga nidra by her or is in the midst of learning this powerful technique from her. The class content was interesting and thorough and Mona creates a warm and engaging environment that allows for an even more satisfying learning experience.”
