Course Overview


Practicing Yoga Nidra is very easy, but teaching it effectively can be challenging, complex, and confusing….

Though this ancient meditative technique has been taught for thousands of years, it is surrounded in mysticism and few reliable resources are available that explain it in a clear and concise way.  As such, this course has been created to help you develop insight into the essential principles of the physiological, psychological and philosophical foundations of Yoga Nidra and its practical applications in the modern world in a simple and easy to understand way.

By completing the course, you will develop a comprehensive understanding of both the theoretical aspects of this sacred science, as well as the art of teaching it effectively to others.  You will learn a way of guiding yourself and others into a state of higher consciousness – where deep, therapeutic rest, spacious awareness and Presence can be directly experienced. This course will equip you with the professional skills you need to guide this transformative and healing practice in your own voice, and be able to help distinguish yourself from tens of thousands of other yoga teachers, who have yet to learn this profound technique and apply it in their classes. 

Lily Goncalves – M .Ed & RYT-500

Founder of Blooming Lotus Yoga

For over 20 years Lily has helped thousands of yoga students deepen their practice, find purpose, live healthier and connect to the Divine. With a Master’s degree in Counselling Psychology, from the University of B.C. in Canada, her time starring on Namaste TV, and her intensive immersion in the traditional ashrams of South India, Lily bridges the gap between the mystical and spiritual practices of the sages of India, with a grounded, practical and scientific approach to body/mind dynamics.

Lily’s innovative adaptation of the traditional yoga nidra practice of Swami Satyananada, has allowed her to develop the “The Complete Yoga Nidra Collection” of guided meditations, as well as a complete system of Yoga Nidra training to learn “The Power of Conscious Sleep” which forms the core of this online course and can empower even a beginner to learn the essential principles of practicing & teaching Yoga Nidra correctly in under 2 weeks.

The Power of Conscious Sleep:

An Evolutionary 25hr  Yoga Nidra Meditation Teacher Training Course


This course offers an exceptionally unique way to learn and teach an integral system of yoga nidra that purifies the body, enlightens the mind and awakens the soul.  You will learn how in the beginning stages, Yoga Nidra relaxes, heals, and releases negative thoughts, self-limiting beliefs and destructive habits. How in the intermediate stages it encourages heightened awareness, clarity and insight.  And at its most profound, advanced stages awakens you to the True Self and can give the experience of the fourth dimension – what yogis call Turiya, the state of enlightenment. 

This holistic, immersive, step-by-step training course is composed of 8 modules, that can be completed in as little as 2 weeks, and can allow you to teach yoga nidra immediately upon certification.  Each Module includes in-depth video lessons  explaining the theory and practical application of yoga nidra, homework assignments that allow you practice and integrate the many benefits of yoga nidra directly, as well as  practicum assignments to help you develop the skills of teaching yoga nidra to others.

The core of the course is composed of the 10 meditation practices found in “The Complete Yoga Nidra Collection,” which you will learn how to teach.  These 10 practices range in duration from 16 – 42 minutes and will give you a wide variety of options when teaching beginners or intermediate classes.  You will be given the mp3’s and transcripts of each of these 10 practices and will be taught step-by-step how to utilize the “9 stages of yoga nidra” in each practice, as well as develop the practical skills to guide others through these practices in your own voice, with eloquence and grace.

“I Thoroughly Enjoyed Every Moment”

Lily’s Yoga Nidra training is beautiful as it aligns with the deepest traditions of the yogic practice offering accessibility, practical application, and transformation. The training is well thought out so it was super easy to access and do in my own time. I thoroughly enjoyed every moment in this love-filled, genuinely authentic training with Lily. I highly recommend it!

“I Have Healed Some Old Wounds”

Thank you from the bottom of my heart. I feel like I found the reason why I became a yoga teacher at 50 (I am 54 now) as I gained so much from this course. My meditation practice has completely changed and I KNOW that I have healed some old wounds. I am grateful for all the knowledge that you have shared with me and grateful that I can access it when needed. I have shared this with many of my good friends and I am excited to share it with even more.

Love This Course!!

The videos are wonderful and deeply insightful, and the course is organized in way that is easy to understand. I really enjoyed getting into the habit of doing Yoga Nidra regularly, and it’s something I will continue to do. It has had numerous positive benefits on my physical, mental, and emotional health. My own students also really enjoyed and benefited from the practice. I would highly recommend the course if you are wanting to tap into a very powerful resource for deep relaxation, consciousness, and personal growth.

Casey O’Connell

The knowledge shared has been invaluable and I’ve taken many notes, watched the classes many times, and I know that this will continue to open me up in many layers.  I’ve always wanted to deepen my meditation and I felt that this Yoga Nidra course is much more than the name says. It is really a treasure house full of meditation wisdom.

I really enjoy leading Yoga Nidra, it gives me such peace inside. The resources from Lily are so lovely, I’m so glad I did this training, I loved learning more about the science and theory of Yoga Nidra, it’s so great to be able to talk about that to students that have questions. This is the beginning of a wonderful journey, I just know it.

“Absolutely Magical

Beautiful teachings with so much wisdom for these difficult times. I took away so much that I apply to my life daily and in my work with others. The students in my yoga classes absolutely love the Yoga Nidra practices I learned here and their feedback was amazing 🙂 I feel extremely grateful to Lily for putting this course together in such an easy to learn manner so I can pass Yoga Nidra on to others.

“I Felt Connected & Supported Throughout”

The way in which the course was structured, from the small portions of information in each module to the downloadable content available, made it so easy and enjoyable to follow. I was comfortable doing this practice with my friends and felt so much joy, being able to share this gift with them and others in the near future. I learned so much more about myself and I also learned how to guide students into their own Yoga Nidra practice and how to observe themselves physically, emotionally and mentally.

“An Absolute Lifesaver”

This course came at the perfect time for me. I was able to work through the modules and solidify a regular practice of Yoga Nidra which really helped me to get me through these last few very difficult months. Having the opportunity to reset and begin again through the practice of Yoga Nidra has been an absolute lifesaver. The option to complete the course in my own time meant that I did not feel rushed, rather I took my time to cultivate a deeper relationship with the content and build my confidence in teaching and my personal practice, which has been deeply nourishing.

Claire Gilchrist

“Easy To Understand, Learn & Practice”

The training is very informative & made in a way that is easy to understand, learn & practice. It’s also visually beautiful! I’m excited to continue my training & even more excited to share the power of Yoga Nidra with others. Thanks so much for creating this amazing program!

Rebecca Mistretta

“I Felt Very Supported & Connected To Lily”

“Making A Big Impact In My Life”

I feel completely blessed having found this course. Not only am I excited to be able to offer the experience of Yoga Nidra to others, but I am also excited about my own evolution through the practice. What I have loved most about the educational components, beyond the practices and practicums, is learning the science behind Yoga Nidra. I have been working with the same intention this entire course and doing practices almost daily…I feel the work and its benefits and see it in my family members as well.

“Enlightening Journey Into The Subconscious

This Yoga Nidra course has been an enlightening journey into the subconscious mind and the guided Yoga Nidra sessions by Lily has been one of the most delightful experiences in my yoga practice.  It has impacted my practice in so many ways and I will transmit these teachings the best I can in my own classes.

Frequently Asked Questions

How long will this course take to complete?

Most students can complete the course in about 2 weeks, dedicating about 1.5 – 2 hours per day.  If you are very motivated, you can even finish it and become certified in under 1 week. However, if you have a busy schedule you can finish the course at a more leisurely pace and it may take you 4 weeks or longer.

What are the pre-requisites?

This course is open to all. Anyone can undertake this training if they have an open mind, willingness to learn, and a desire to apply what is taught to benefit others.  This course is not limited to yoga or meditation teachers and no previous experience teaching or guiding yoga or meditation is required.

Can I really join a meditation retreat for free, after this course?

Absolutely! Yoga is a continual journey of self-discovery and growth. After you graduate, we welcome you to join us in Bali for our intensive silent meditation retreats, that we hold twice yearly.  We are here to support, mentor and offer you guidance both online and in-person during our live events.  You can learn more about these silent meditation retreats here.

What are my payment options?

We accept secure online payments via credit/debit card or Paypal.  Please contact us if you cannot pay all at once and need to arrange a payment plan.

It is a combination of both.  About 50% of the course is theory, which will give you a solid foundation in understanding the essence of Yoga Nidra, and 50% is homework and practicums.  The practicums are “practice teaching sessions” that can be done with a friend or family member, as a way to apply what you have learned and develop confidence in guiding safe, effective and compassionate Yoga Nidra sessions.
How can I contact the teacher if I have questions or something I'd like to share?
