Would you like to teach yoga nidra and share these benefits with your students?

You’ve come to the right place.

Hi! I’m Elena

I’m an experienced yoga and meditation teacher, teachers’ educator and psychologist.

My yoga journey spans over 2 decades, and I’ve been educating teachers since 2012.  

I’ve got over 9000 yoga and meditation teaching hours under my belt and at this point in my career I dedicate my time to training teachers, writing for wellness publications and working 1-2-1 with anxiety, burnout and stress disorder patients at a rehabilitation clinic.


Psychology is my background, so the training is comprehensive and well-informed both from the perspective of yoga tradition and modern science

I'm recognised as an expert in the field, currently working for meditation apps and contributing as a writer for yoga- and wellness magazines and blogs on the topic. Yoga nidra recordings I've created have been listened to online over a million times. Based on my experience I can teach you how to create brilliant recordings and find your online audience

I’ve been educating yoga nidra teachers in person since 2012, and have been refining the programme and delivery over the years. This means that you'll be signing up for a training that is tried and tested, and proven effective for hundreds of teachers.

After experiencing Elena’s magical yoga nidra sessions in Zurich, I wanted to know more about the method. 

I wanted to learn about the theory and science behind it. I signed up for the yoga nidra teacher training 

It was a deep experience for two reasons: 

1. As a yoga teacher by the end of the course I felt empowered to add yoga nidra to my classes
2. As a yoga nidra student it was just a unique experience observing myself on a deeper level.

Elena’s presence and empowerment is truly unique. Her sessions and teaching style is authentic, reflecting her decade-long experience of studying and teaching psychology, yoga and Ayurveda. 

I even translated my yoga nidra scripts into my mother tongue, Hungarian and shared the practice with some of my students when teaching in Budapest. Otherwise I added a regular monthly yoga nidra practice to my vinyasa classes and to my surprise my most “ninja” students were the happiest about it.

Why Yoga Nidra?

The world is becoming an increasingly fast-paced and stressful place. According to American Institute of Stress, 80% of US population feel stress at work and say they need help with managing stress.

Another big issue is sleep. There’s a growing need for methods of stress relief that can help us replenish our energy and support healthy sleep.

Throughout decades, yoga nidra studies have been consistently showing significant effects on stress reduction. Yoga Nidra improves sleep and helps practitioners cope with anxiety and burnout.

This also leads to a growing demand for qualified and well informed yoga nidra teachers.

As a meditation teacher, you can help your students get amazing results and support mental health. With yoga nidra they can attain a stress-free, relaxed state, a sense of calm and clarity as well as better sleep.

Learn to teach yoga nidra, and you’ll be able to make a bigger difference for your students, without driving yourself to exhaustion with endless asana sessions and demos.

With this programme, not only will you help your students discover the deepest form of rest, but also create your own personal practice. When you do, you’ll be amazed by how often your students ask you: “How do you manage to be so rested, relaxed and glowing? Seriously, you’re a living proof that yoga nidra works!”.

Why I created this training

After over 10 years of teaching yoga nidra meditation, I'm deeply touched that this skill has helped me positively impact more than a million people across 5 continents.

I'd love for you to experience this sense of purpose and fulfilment as a teacher, too.

Yoga nidra is a powerful meditation technique for restoring physical, mental and emotional health.

And YES, you can teach it like a pro.

Learn a new skill that will give you a sense of fulfilment as you help your students overcome personal challenges.

In just 4 weeks you’ll be teaching from an informed place and with complete confidence.

Joining Elena’s yoga nidra teacher training has been an amazing journey for me.

She has a unique and very rare way of teaching yoga nidra. Her voice and the details in the guidance is wonderful.

As a yoga teacher I knew that I had to join the yoga nidra teacher training. In-depth background theory, effects of yoga nidra, the guided yoga nidra steps, scrips and practical teachings were all covered.

Elena’s knowledge is detailed, documented and thorough. And her teacher teachings skills are captivating.

After the course I now know how to teach yoga nidra in different ways. I know about the hormones and the effect on the body and brain and I know about the benefits of yoga nidra.

If you are a fan of yoga nidra do not hesitate to join Elena’s course.

This could be you:

Asset 1

It’s such a relief to teach classes that aren’t just about asana! I can’t believe teaching can be both easy and so transformative for the students

Asset 1

After teaching yoga nidra I feel like I’ve just meditated for an hour myself. Love my job!

Asset 1

My yoga students are rested, glowing and grateful for yoga nidra. And so am I!

Asset 1

I finally took a leap out of the hectic 9 to 5 job and now make a living as a meditation teacher

Asset 1

I never felt as fulfilled as I do now: helping students experience the deepest form of rest (and enjoying better health and more energy myself!)

Asset 1

My yoga students are thanking me for helping them (and even their husbands, kids and pets to whom they play my recordings lol!) deeply rest and de-stress

Still not convinced? Here are more scientifically proven effects of yoga nidra


Reduces stress, anxiety and depression (1, 2, 3, 4, 5)


Improves sleep and helps with chronic insomnia. (6, 7)


Helps to regulate blood sugar (8)


Fights PTSD (9)


Has a pain relieving and anti-inflammatory effect.(10)


Alleviates menstrual disorders and related psychological imbalances. (11, 12, 13)


Improves various dimensions of well-being including feelings of happiness, enthusiasm, being more inspired and alert, active, having clarity of thought, control over anger, and self-confidence. (14, 15)


Reduces blood pressure. (16)

Imagine your students telling you THIS after the practice:

“I feel like I just
had the best nap of my life!”

“I’m coming back for more”

“I feel 10 years younger”

“It’s like floating on a cloud! (or in serotonin heaven)”

“I’ve only been meditating for 40 minutes? I feel so refreshed like I just slept for a month”

“All my tiredness and edginess are gone without a trace”

The Yoga Nidra course with Elena has given me some very useful tool. 

As a body therapist and yoga teacher, it has given me the opportunity to consciously work with the body’s own restorative resources.

With clients in my clinic and when I guide my students in my classes through yoga nidra meditation, I experience people as more ‘whole’ instead of fragmented, having clarity of mind and experiencing better night’s sleep.

The Yoga Nidra meditation helps to draw the presence into oneself both on a physical level as well as a deeper unconscious mental level.

Teach Yoga Nidra comes with a 100% satisfaction guarantee. This training will help you create a solid understanding of yoga nidra  and get the tools you need to start teaching in just 4 weeks. I also expect you to put effort into mastering the skills I’m here to teach you. This is why in order to receive your 100% refund, you will be asked to submit the completed coursework for the first 7 days of the programme.

If you do all the coursework and meditations, and still feel that I have not delivered on my promise, please submit your fully completed coursework for the first 7 days within 7 days of purchase and I will promptly refund your payment. If the completed coursework is not received within the 7-day period, no refunds will be issued.

Please note that the satisfaction guarantee is applicable to the content of this training. This means that if you no longer have internet access or your work schedule changes and you decide to cancel your participation for reasons other than not being satisfied with the content of the training, no refunds will be issued.


Registration for Teach Yoga Nidra closes on Tuesday, the 16h of February 2021 at 10pm Central European Time (CET). 

On average this training will take you about 1 hour 15 minutes daily including your personal practice. In addition to that, there’s a weekly live class that will take 45 minutes to 1 hour per week.

If you are considering a certification programme, you will need approximately 10 hours to complete the final test and assignments.

The video and audio lectures are not downloadable, however you will be able to download your supporting materials and assignments in PDF format and work with them offline.

The course is released day by day, and there is a reason behind it. It’s important that you don’t get overwhelmed with the content of the entire course, but take it step-by-step, and have the time to integrate it. According to studies, for optimal retention of knowledge and skill, the human brain needs a full night of sleep to integrate the content from the day before prior to being exposed to the new portion of information. So take it easy, and work through the programme one day at a time. 

After the course is fully unlocked, you can do the training again at your own pace as long as it exists.

If you are signing up for a non-certification programme, then NO.

If you are signing up for a certification programme, the answer is YES – provided you have successfully completed all the assignments and turned them in on time, you will receive an electronic certificate of completion. 

If you are able to find 1 hour 15 minutes of undisturbed time daily, the training will be transformative. If it doesn’t work out, you can take the programme again when it suits you best as you will keep the access after the programme is finished. 

If you enrol into a certification programme and don’t complete the assignments on time, you’ll get a chance to complete it next time the programme is offered.

The training is designed primarily for yoga- and meditation teachers, therapists, teachers, social workers and other well-being professionals. It can however be taken by anyone wanting to start teaching this technique or interested in learning about yoga nidra in depth for their own benefit or for the benefit of their family.

・A yoga teacher who would like to learn to guide your students into the deepest tranquility and rest


A meditation teacher wanting to expand your knowledge and offer a new style of meditation


A therapist interested in adding a very effective method of relaxation to their portfolio


A parent who would like to help raise mindful, grounded and calm kids (and as an added bonus, help them fall asleep fast)

・A software developer/helicopter pilot/arctic guide/you name it wanting to teach meditation



A part of this course is all about cultivating self-practice. 

It’s a great choice if you are ready to


  • Be the best example of what you teach
  • Reverse the effects of stress, anxiety, burnout and overwhelm, and learn to deal with them better
  • Take action to make meditation your daily practice
  • Improve your physical and mental health 
  • Master your thoughts and your mind
  • Be in charge of how you feel
  • Improve your sleep
  • Invest into your long term mental health

  • Don’t have the possibility to be in an uninterrupted environment to participate in the training and assignments

This is what makes this training stand out from similar looking trainings:



  • research-based
  • easy-to-understand and implement
  • rich with examples
  • will offer not only knowledge but also practical tools to start teaching in just 4 weeks

In the certification programme,  you’ll also receive personal feedback from Elena.

This is completely unique and there are no other trainings as I’m writing this that offer personal feedback from the teacher who created the course.


This course is created and led by me, Elena Mironov. I’m a psychologist and an experienced meditation teacher with over 15 years of teaching experience, including multiple meditation teacher trainings that I’ve led globally. This means that you will be presented with a comprehensive training programme that is structured with a deep understanding of a human mind and brain AND equipped with practical hands-on skills to actually teach this method.
