Yoga Nidra Training (20 hrs)

A 4-weeks immersion with Moena de Jong to dive deeper into the theory and practice of Yoga Nidra and how to integrate this beautiful healing practice in your teachings or your own routine.

20 hrs training with Moena de Jong

During this 4-day training we will explore the connection between the different stages of consciousness and the relationship with the five senses. We will then move between the several layers of the mind and study the characteristics of the five elements. As the five elements relate directly to the five senses, you will understand both our happiness and suffering.

Moena will integrate the five elements into this Yoga Nidra training for a deep inner journey. During the practices and the theory we will dive into the layers of the mind where our awareness fluctuates from consciousness to subconsciousness, to deeper consciousness. The last one is the most subtle layer where our higher awareness can be revealed.

Yoga Nidra


The Nidra state of deep sleep where our senses, intellect, and mind relax, is where we become free from the concepts of time, space and reason. When this happens, brain activity reduces and the body goes into a healing state. As the body enters this state of healing, we can purify toxins at a cellular level, refresh the mind and remove luggage from the subconscious. Every day of this journey we will focus on a specific element. In our daily life we get an overload of information and incentives through our senses that cause us to feel tired, stressed, uninspired and even stagnated. Through understanding how Yoga Nidra restores our senses, the inner view gets clearer. We get to balance all the input that constantly comes in through the senses (smell, taste, sight, touch, hearing) which relate to the five elements: Earth, Water, Fire, Air & Ether. These five elements are interdependent transformations of consciousness, matter, and energy. They occur in the outside world but also inside of us. Each perception or sensation we experience is made out of a pattern of these elements.
Bringing the outer and inner world together in balance helps us to understand our desires, habits and aversions. It brings us in the present moment, which is the expression of living beyond suffering caused by a stored past or trauma.

Driven by an insatiable curiosity for depth, it was a logical step 14 years ago for Moena de Jong to embark on a yoga education. After 4 years of training based on the Critical Alignment principle, she continued her yoga journey with teacher training from Svaha Yoga (Jivamukti-inspired), practiced Vipassana meditation, and participated in workshops with various international instructors.

In 2014, she obtained her 500-hour certification from Jivamukti Yoga in New York. In addition to Hatha and Vinyasa yoga, Yoga Nidra and Pranayama are strong passions she enjoys sharing with her students. Her lineage traces back to Swami Satyananda Saraswati. Tibetan Buddhism captured her heart years ago, leading her to pursue her studies within the lineage of Drukpa Kagyu.

Believing that yoga encompasses all aspects of life, she seamlessly integrated her Ayurveda knowledge into her daily practice and shares this with her students. Moena’s classes range from dynamic Jivamukti-inspired yoga to Hatha yoga in a meditative flow. She emphasizes the importance of students following their intuition and freeing themselves from self-criticism.

For years, Moena has been sharing her passion for connection through Pranayama, Vinyasa, Hatha, philosophy, Nidra, and Ayurveda. She conducts workshops for various teacher training programs in these aforementioned yoga forms. Believing that true radiance comes from authentic self-expression, she guides her students with light and enthusiasm on a journey towards their core.
