Online Learning FAQ

Here are some frequently asked questions that may help you if they come up for you.

Anna's role is to provide support for all our online students. So in the short term, if you have any questions or queries then please email her at studentsupport@yoganidranetwork.org. If it's a question about the practice or theory of yoga nidra then she will most likely get an answer from the course tutors, and will send that on to you. The reason we ask you to go through Anna rather than mailing us directly is simply that Anna has the time to keep careful track of everyone's questions and will make sure that you get an answer from us.

In the longer term we hope to reintroduce regular webinars. Each session will focus on a specific aspect of the practice, and will start off with a talk given by Uma and Nirlipta and then open up into a Q&A session. As online course students you will get early notification of webinar dates and will be able to buy places at a reduced price. We plan to start these up again in Autumn 2016, and we will mail all course participants as soon as the first set of dates has been scheduled.

Yes, you can. Our online shop uses PayPal which this processes payments in a wide range of currencies. It will work out the price in your local currency, and the associated currency exchange fee is met by us.

This is an online course, and as such there are limits to the extent you can take the course materials offline. There are potentially four elements to the course material (depending on the course) - audio recordings of yoga nidra practices, audio recordings of lectures, written content, and video lectures – and for each the situation is different:

  • The yoga nidra practices are designed to be listened to often and integrated into everyday life according to your situation. Although they can be streamed from the website, to facilitate their use we also have made them downloadable. This means that once you've downloaded them to your computer you can transfer them to any device you like, and listen to them whenever and wherever you want.
  • As far as the written material goes, we have included a PDF of all the written course content which includes a summary of all the video lectures.
  • The video lectures and audio lecture recordings are not downloadable and can only be streamed from the website. This was necessary to protect our intellectual property.
