Online Yoga Nidra Training Course

with Francesca Sanlorenzo

October - December 2024 : a 6 day training live online

Teacher Training

We are delighted to welcome SYT Francesca Sanlorenzo to Yogarise-Online for an immersive and non-dogmatic Yoga Nidra training for teachers and practitioners.

During the course you will cultivate a daily practice of Yoga Nidra whilst learning about and experiencing different approaches from different schools, both classical and contemporary, helping you to deepen your own practice. As well as reflecting on your personal journey you will have the opportunity to develop your own unique and authentic voice and to create scripts to share with your community.

We will also unpack the science, history and philosophy behind the practice and its applications in various contexts for you to be ready to deliver Yoga Nidra to a range of different students and settings. Throughout the course you will also be guided through lots of Yoga Nidra practises to experience some of the theory we have explored in the sessions adding a retreat quality to the training.


Teacher Training

You will meet live online for 6 days spread over 2 months. Including the self-study between each of the weekend ‘meets’ you will complete approximately 100 hours.

If you are interested in teaching Yoga Nidra you will be asked to complete 3 teaching assignments throughout the course and attend an extra session on Saturday afternoons to unpack specific teaching principles and techniques. Assignments include planning a Yoga Nidra workshop for your students.

Completing the course for your own personal development? You are very welcome to join us if you are not planning to teach others but simply seek to deepen your own practice, as this journey will encourage you to establish a routine necessary to explore the depth of Yoga Nidra.



This Yoga Nidra immersion/training is open to qualified yoga teachers and trainee yoga teachers looking to add yoga Nidra classes and workshops to their yoga teaching offering. Practitioners looking to deepen their understanding of yoga Nidra and immerse themselves in the practice, and health care professionals who are interested in the practice of Yoga Nidra and would like to know more.

I loved Fra’s course. It reminded me of the core of my yoga practice, the still heart, the body-mind-spirit connection, and the always-importance of breath. It also reminded me that we have such a gift in our practice and that yoga nidra is a generous and gentle way to share it with others, especially those who might find asana practice daunting or physically not possible. With yoga nidra, the practice can truly be for every body." Stella Duffy

"Fra was wonderful, her yoga sequences were beautiful, her teaching in-depth and really comprehensive. I have learnt so much from the course and other participants and would only recommend Yoga Nidra with Fra!!" Nel

The course content and structure was so well thought through with a good mix of theory and practice. Suitable for anyone with an interest in learning more about this life-changing, transformative practice! Thank you Fra and Yogarise!" Liv

"A great course that really immerses you into the world of yoga Nidra, its history, benefits and various schools of practice. Delivered in a very easy-to-follow format, great if you want to teach it or just deepen your understanding for your own practice. Yoga Nidra is something that is so needed in todays' fast-paced world I can highly recommend this course. Fra has such warmth and genuine passion for the practice which shines through in her training. Thank you." Suzanne
