Online Yoga Nidra CourseWe are in the most modern times where all of us live in the reactive world and often struggle to relax and just let go as if there is stress and burden to even drop things.

We all carry trauma, unresolved emotions, pain, and honestly, it’s really alright!

The whole purpose is to be able to release it.

This gentle step-by-step practice of Yoga Nidra allows us to release all of this without even reliving it all over again.

Yoga Nidra is an age-old practice of Yoga described in ancient texts.

It is a sleep-based meditation where you learn to relax as deeply as in sleep while being awake.

Like Swami Satyananda describes it, ‘going to sleep state’. This is the state where we are most aware at the same time highly relaxed.

Yoga Nidra helps us to experience the same state without falling asleep. Since sleep is natural to us, this practice proves to be highly efficient than other seated practices where we have a certain technique or system to follow.

Yoga Nidra is all about ‘undoing, unlearning’, letting go of any goal or even the idea of ‘being spiritual’. It works by taking you to brainwave states similar to those in sleep where you go completely disengaged from your thoughts and emotions creating the possibility to access deeper layers of the mind.

For people who have difficulty in practicing seated practices, Yoga Nidra is the most accessible for them. This practice is amazing because it helps you to experience the deepest states of consciousness which otherwise is challenging and difficult to achieve in seated practices.

The most beautiful part of Yoga Nidra is that this practice brings changes in your waking state and relaxation in a way becomes your default state!!

We have certified 260+ Yoga Nidra Facilitators across the world. We feel honoured in building highly skilled, compassionate and knowledgeable Teachers to spread the gift of Yoga Nidra.

Joshita’s Yoga Nidra course was well structured, informative and involving students into discussions about the various subjects covered throughout the sessions. The lesson-ending practices give you the tools to guide yourself or others into this deep meditative space. I enjoyed the course very much. Joshita was enthusiastic about the subject and the atmosphere was warm and welcoming.

I really liked how the program is organized into three weekends, because it allows us to test the techniques on our own and have more questions ready for the next sessions. The class stays very connected to the real practice in this way, and it's a joy. Joshita is a wonderful teacher that makes a lot of time for questions and participation, making the group more involved. Thank you so much!

Just completed the Yoga Nidra course with Joshita, I learned so much on this course but most importantly the benefits of daily personal practice which I have done for the 3 weeks throughout the course and will continue to do to develop my own practice and experience. Joshita has such a lovely manner and her voice during yoga Nidra is amazing. I would highly recommend anyone thinking of doing this course or curious as to what Yoga Nidra is? So, just sign up and do it, you won’t be disappointed. Thank you so much Joshita and Nada Yoga School.

The Yoga Nidra course was very well organized, methodical, and was done with a very passionate teacher Miss Joshita Arora. She made sure I understood the concept and importance of each and every step of Yoga Nidra. Looking forward to continuing to attend more courses & workshops at Nada Yoga School when possible.

I loved Joshita's Yoga Nidra course. It was intelligently organized and provided a balanced amount of information with actual practice. I'm still practicing and benefitting from all that I learned. My only wish was that it didn't end so soon.
~ Beth Dielle Ciesco, France

I enjoyed the course very much. Her voice and the way she teaches make the topic interesting and easy to understand. I found really enriching to listen to the experience of each of my classmates, which made me realize things about my own experience in each Yoga Nidra session. I learned about Yoga Nidra through the lectures but also through the experience and that is really valuable.
~ Beth Dielle Ciesco, France

The course was great - the right amount of theory with balance. And I liked that the course was at weekends, it actually created a retreat/course feel for me. Joshita was brilliant - clear, welcoming; I thought she did a great job of making the course inclusive and getting people to join in yet leading and keeping the course on track and with enough structure without being strict. Her knowledge was evident and the PDFs were a great support tool. Super generous too, to put on an extra session - thank you very much. Really great course and I'm so pleased I could do this online with a course based in India and a group based all over the world.

The yoga nidra course has been wonderful, Joshita is a very good facilitator, she has a warm and inclusive approach as well as explaining everything clearly. I wasn't able to join in the live sessions so I watched all the recordings and have to say that I still felt part of the group and included. Joshita has a beautiful soothing voice for the yoga nidra which helps you to relax immediately and go deeper. This practice has helped me to sleep and relax after months of not sleeping due to pain, I am so grateful for that and would recommend this course to anyone who has an interest. Thank you so much Joshita and Nada Yoga School.

Your Teacher: Joshita Arora

Joshita Arora - Yoga Nidra Teacher

Originally an Interior Designer, Joshita started to practice Yoga and Meditation at a very young age under the guidance of her mother. Joshita has been practicing Hatha Yoga, Pranayama, Yoga Nidra, and Meditation for several years on a regular basis. She has conducted Yoga Nidra, Meditation classes, courses, and workshops in various teacher training courses and retreats for over 8 years in Rishikesh, India, and Thailand. Joshita is a certified Yoga Nidra Facilitator. She studied Yoga Nidra with Bettina Kahlert (renowned Yoga Nidra Teacher) and also finished Yoga Nidra Facilitator Training with her. She also got the privilege to study and complete 30-hour Yoga Nidra Facilitator Training through the one and only ‘International Yoga Nidra Conference’.

Her curiosity to explore different aspects of Yoga led her to Rishikesh, India, and Asian Countries where she studied and still continues to be intensively participating in different forms of Yoga, workshops, and courses from various traditions. She began to learn in-depth knowledge of ancient teachings of Yoga at The Sivananda Yoga Vedanta Centre in Kerala, India. After finding its profound benefits with the daily practice of Hatha Yoga, Pranayama, Meditation and Karma Yoga, it completely changed her perspective of the body, mind, energy and spirituality.

The call for sharing this knowledge was so deep in her that she started to teach Hatha Yoga, Pranayama, and Meditation at Sivananda Yoga Centre. She loves to bring dynamism and enthusiasm in her classes.

Her first experience of Yoga Nidra after an asana class made her realize that life does not have to be taken so seriously and it’s not so difficult to let go as we think it is. This practice made her realize that stillness exists within all of us, undistorted by what we do or don’t do on the outside but this point of stillness inside remains the same always. She is very excited to share her experience with you and see what it can bring for you.

Learning from Joshita about the practice of Yoga Nidra and its benefits for release and health has been a wonderful experience for me as a Yoga and Meditation teacher with over five years of experience. Her teaching is clear and concise, friendly, and conversational across the six structured sessions that span a three-week period. The whole design of the course allows participants to really internalize the fundamental elements and principles of this ancient practice and to feel confident in their way forward. I have a good understanding now of the way to effectively practice on a personal level and to effectively guide others in the class setting. I am so happy that I chose to link up with Joshita, and I intend to take more training with her and visit her at Nada Yoga School next time I am in Rishikesh. Thank you and Om Shanti

And the practice has really affected me in a deeply positive, healing way. I just wish the course was longer! I would definitely do a level 2 or beyond. It was such a beautiful experience. Thank you!

There is space on the forum to explore questions at a deeper level which is wonderful. Joshita has a real passion for sharing this wonderful Holistic Practice with her students. She values their contributions too and sees them as an integral part of the process of learning. It is a wonderful investment in self-care and ultimately incredibly rewarding for self and others.

This experience was like no other. I’m not often drawn to an online course however this course lead by Joshita has completely changed my perspective. I loved the pace of the course, always leaving space for questions and answers or sharing experiences. The information was given in a format that was very easily followed and understood. The offering of the practice done together was the cherry on the top for me. Not waiting to do it at a later date. Knowing I can go back over the course as I desire is bonus. Thank you so much.
