Yoga Nidra - Awakening into the Self

1 August, 2020
(Registration open till December 2025)

Now available as a recorded event!


Dru Yoga Nidra is the silence that follows OM. It’s a journey that leads to samadhi and ultimately to turiya itself. In other words it’s a path to the state of enlightenment.

These very special two days of practice give you the opportunity to immerse yourself in the bliss of relaxation, and at the same time discover how to use the state of profound rest to achieve your goals, transform old patterns, develop radiant health. 

As you travel through the sessions, you'll find that the experience, philosophy, science, and practice of these ancient teachings have the potential to awaken you to the essence of your being.

This 2-day online-immersion is for people who want to discover that the art of 'doing nothing' can lead to 'being more'! It will help you discover how Yoga Nidra is not only a practice of a technique but also as an utterly remarkable state of consciousness.

You will discover the difference between nidra and deep relaxation - and enjoy the benefits of both. You will explore the necessary preparations to set you up for a successful yoga nidra experience, and you’ll be taught the various ways to practice and also how to anchor your experience - honouring that this is a process that can transform your life.

During our time together our focus will be on the healing, spiritual awakening and self-empowerment aspect of Dru Yoga Nidra.

You'll be lead by Nanna Coppens, Padma MacIntyre, Rita Goswami and Andrew Wells. Nanna brings her vast experience in yoga therapeutics and restorative yoga, Padma her profound, compassionate understanding of how yoga can restore health in every aspect of life. Rita's huge knowledge of yoga vedanta will help you understand just why yoga nidra consciousness is so very powerful, and Andrew brings his experience pioneering Dru detraum techniques in post-conflict zones. 

With them, you'll discover how yoga nidra is a life-changing tool that brings resilience and ease to the body, mind and spirit. 

Yoga nidra is now offered by the NHS and health professionals for boosting health and wellbeing.

Ayurveda Retreat

Booking myself on to the Dru Ayurvedic Weekend Retreat is one of the best spontaneous decisions I’ve made in a while. I have a reputation for leaving things until the last minute, in this case I booked my place just an hour before it began! I guess that’s one of the benefits of an online course - I didn’t have to physically get there, just make sure I was out of my PJs before the Zoom meeting went live!!! 
After a few weeks of lockdown and spending perhaps a little too much time reading and watching the news, this online retreat gave me a much needed boost of positivity. It was wonderful to connect with all the other people who were attending, to see so many smiling faces, some new and some familiar. 
The content of the course was superbly presented - a good balance of ‘live’ face to face information sharing, question and answer sessions, some ‘live’ yoga, meditation and chanting and then a series of pre recorded videos to watch. We were given plenty of short breaks throughout the day and a nice long lunch break, time to eat, read our notes, watch the videos and get outside for some fresh air.
Alongside the Zoom live video there was excellent support for anyone with technical problems, via the chat box, email or telephone. The chat was also a place to ask questions and share information.
The Dru Team did a great job of putting this weekend retreat together and I wouldn’t hesitate in joining them for another online course in the future. Obviously if I had the choice I’d prefer to be there in person, but this really is a great alternative until we can do that.

What I'll take from today's yoga postgrad workshop:- A found it a very holistic day. Sharing the teaching of postures with the others was very useful and I loved the Salutation to the 4 Directions. As usual, great resources and excellent teaching from Anne & Padma. Thank you.

Thank you all so much for this! What a precious gift this has been.
Connecting in with teachers and fellow Dru yogis around the world is always a great joy. 
Following the videos and working on the meditations has been everything I have needed this week.
I am opening my classes again here in Norway after having been closed since 12th March. 
So a very special time indeed. 
I feel so blessed - belonging to this community, doing this work, bringing positive change to the world. 
Thank you
