Dreamsong Yoga Nidra and Your Voice:  Vocal Explorations for Yoga Nidra Teachers

The intention of this day is to inspire creative explorations in how we can use our voices, individually and together when we share the teachings of yoga (nidra).

Course Information

*We will rest together in multiple practices of well supported deep Total Yoga Nidra experiences, and we shall sing together, and explore our voices in many practical experiences of responsive, open and creative and inspirational voice and body that supports the richness and heartfelt authenticity of our voices however we choose to use them. A range of different singing, and other vocal practices will be shared, and harmonies explored.

There will be plenty of opportunities for questions and discussions of specific issues relation to total yoga nidra and health. This means that if you have specific personal or professional interests relating to yoga nidra that you are invited to bring your questions and experiences to share with the group. The programme is open to responsive, intuitive attunements and adjustments to meet the specific needs of those attending.

You will experience and learn

  • multiple nourishing yoga nidra practices
  • multiple valuable vocal techniques for deepening connection and confidence with your voice
  • multiple pranayama tools (breath techniques) to support voice projection and power
  • multiple methods for integrating voice and heartfelt authenticity for use in teaching

This experiential day-long workshop is open to everyone who is currently practicing, sharing and teaching yoga (nidra). It is emphatically non-dogmatic and non-denominational, respecting and welcoming teachers of all forms and from all schools of yoga (nidra). The day counts as continuing professional development (CPD) for teachers who have completed prior trainings with Uma, and the Yoga Nidra Network, and can also count towards CPD points for other yoga teachers and teachers/therapists who have prior trainings in yoga (nidra). Mental health care practitioners and health care practitioners with a practice of yoga nidra, and experience of sharing yoga (nidra) with their clients are also welcome to attend the day, provided they have a living interest in and regular practice of yoga (nidra).
