Teacher Training

Yogarise is delighted to welcome back SYT Francesca Sanlorenzo for an immersive Yoga Nidra training for teachers and practitioners.

During the course you will cultivate your own daily practice, and discover different approaches and schools of Yoga Nidra, both classical and contemporary. You will have opportunity to develop a unique voice and create your own scripts.

We will explore the science, history and philosophy behind the practice and its applications in different contexts. You will be guided through lots of Yoga Nidra practices to experience some of the theory - adding a restorative, retreat-like quality to the training.



The training is for qualified and trainee yoga teachers looking to add Yoga Nidra to their teaching offering. It is also suitable for meditation teachers, health care professionals and practitioners who are very familiar with the practice of Yoga Nidra.


The course will take place Saturdays 9.00 - 18.00 and Sundays 9.00 - 16.00 at Yogarise Peckham on the following dates:

23/24 September 2023

28/29 October 2023

18/19 November 2023

If you cannot attend in person, the training will be streamed live online, so you can fulfil the course regardless of whether you live near the studio.



Each weekend includes practical sessions and theory with plenty of time for discussion and group work. Francesca will offer a morning vinyasa practice and a 30 min Yoga Nidra practice each day in addition to short practices of Yoga Nidra related to the theory.
