Rest, Re-connect, and Restore: a weekend of Yoga Nidrā
Live in-person with Uma and Nirlipta in Stroud
Who is it intended for? Who is eligible for this course?
Everyone is welcome. No experience necessary. This is for absolutely anyone who is in need
of very deep and sustained rest. Facilitators, care givers and teachers (especially those who
have already trained with us!) are also warmly invited to take rest for themselves. It shares
the skills of deep self-care through yoga nidrā and community rest. This weekend retreat will
nourish and nurture you, to foster a sense of well-being in the midst of all that life can bring.
How long is it?
10am til 5pm – each day (including lunch)
Is this course for me?
Do you need a break?
Would you love to press pause on your life for just one day?
Would you love to rest and be nurtured all day long with back-to back live yoga nidrā with
Uma and Nirlipta?
This weekend does just it does what it says on the tin! It’s two days to rest, reconnect and
restore your energies with Yoga Nidrā Made Easy co-authors Uma Dinmsore-Tuli and
Nirlipta Tuli. It’s not complicated. Imagine two whole days of being pampered with nidrā, in
our lovely home yoga studio in our small but pleasing garden in Stroud. From beginning to
end, the weekend will be filled with a variety of nidrās covering a multitude of topics, from
deep rest to elemental, philosophical, to magical narrative stories to travelling in time; all in
the profound nourishing rest of nidrā with Uma and Nirlipta. We will welcome you home to
your Rested Self.
Including two abundant and delicious home cooked organic vegetarian lunches, and plentiful
snacks and refreshments. Please let us know at time of booking your needs and wants around your diet, and we shall be sure to offer you what suits you. If price is a barrier to attendance please call us and we can work something out.
What do I need to bring?
Nothing at all, just your good self, and perhaps a journal if you would like to make some notes. We provide: a super comfy yoga nidrā nest for you – specially designed yoga nidrā
mats, plus cushions, bolsters, eye pillows/scarves, oodles of covers, multiple bolsters (small
and large), cosy sheepskins, and as many lovely blankets as you need!
What will this weekend give me?
1. Time to experience the nourishing practical benefits resting in yoga nidrā: the meditative
restful sleep of the yogis.
2. Space to enjoy a variety of nurturing yoga nidrās during the weekend.
3. A chance to let go of the stresses and anxieties of daily life.
4. The nurturing ‘resonant echo’ of yoga nidrā so you can feel how the benefits of the
practice last for much longer than the practice itself.
5. The magical healing qualities of deep physiological rest, and a sense of how to replicate
that for yourself when you go home.
What to expect?
To enjoy the experience being immersed in yoga nidrā. There will be space for connection,
discussions, deep meditative rest, and also for querying and making observations. There will
also be space for making personal and private reflections by journalling. With that in mind it
would be very useful for bringing a journal and pen on the day.
What will I be able to do after this course?
To feel nurtured, rested, reconnected to your resting self! This is not a training course to
facilitate nidrā. It is a weekend of nurture acknowledging and honouring the importance of
deep rest, reconnection and restoration, and enjoying being held in a dedicated space for that
Please note that this course doesn’t qualify you to teach or facilitate yoga nidrā.
It is entirely independent of any of our other courses, offered by the Yoga Nidrā Network. It
is a standalone event, and of course it also a nourishing choice for anyone who has done any
of our other courses, workshops or training.
Umā will be teaching on Saturday and Nirlipta will teach on Sunday.

Welcome home to yourself. This weekend retreat is all about deep, deep meditative rest. This
is all about being nurtured by yoga nidrā. In our warm and cosy yoga studio, in the garden of
our home, you will be welcomed and snuggled in to rest as you listen to yoga nidrā practices
which will leave you feeling nourished, nurtured, and cherished. This is a weekend of yoga
nidrā treats. There will also be an opportunity to go on a lovely country walk in the
surrounding fields or sitting by the wood burner in the living room. As well as these, there
will be refreshments and a tasty home-cooked lunch. The practices will be facilitated, each
person having their own ‘yoga nidrā nest’ using mats, bolsters, cushions, and blankets and
eye pillows. This is a weekend of deep meditative rest.. The yoga nidrā practices will involve
deep elemental rest, using yoga nidrā as aid to sleep, and to support creativity and meditative
awareness. The nidrās will support you in resting, re-connecting and restoring. Welcome
home to your rested self.
