Meditation & Yoga Nidra Teacher Training Course

Learn to guide meditations and yoga nidra on the beautiful island of Gozo. For one week we will dive deep into a range of different meditation techniques and we will practice how to guide them. As we are on a sunny island in the mediterranean sea, we will practice outdoors by the sea as much as we can. This 50-hour Yoga Alliance Continuing Education Course is open to certified Yoga Teachers and advanced meditation practitioners.

We will cover techniques from the Buddhist and Vedanta Tradition, as well as Yoga Nidra practices.

Expect to practice the following techniques:

  • Breath Awareness meditation
  • Metta Meditation
  • Detached Awareness meditation
  • Non-attachment meditation
  • Chakra meditation
  • Guided meditation
  • Japa and mala meditation
  • Mindfullness meditation
  • Tratak meditation
  • Mantra meditation
  • Yantra meditation
  • Pratipaksha Bhavana meditation
  • Yoga Nidra

What is so special about Gozo?

Gozo is a tiny island in the mediterranean Sea, with 300 days of sun per year and a very rich history. Some say Gozo was part of Atlantis, some say it is the island of Calypso. What we know for sure is that nature is amazing here and that we have a lot of ancient temples, caves and other places with a very strong energy. The perfect place for a Meditation and Yoga Nidra Teacher training or Advanced Practitioner Course. We will practice our meditation and yoga nidra on beaches, cliffs and on remote spots on the island.

Where to stay?

You will stay at the lovely Quaint Boutique Hotels in Sannat or Xewkija. This means staying in an authentic Gozitan village and having a comfortable room to return to after you training during the day. Check the information about Quaint Boutique Hotels on our Yoga, hiking and meditation retreats page.

Who will be teaching?

You will be guided by Monique van Bemmelen, Yoga and Meditation teacher, 500 RYT and YACEP.


Upon completion of the assignments and passing a test, you will receive a Meditation and Yoga Teacher Certificate by Yellow Rock Yoga. This will give you 50 CEU to use as continuing education points with Yoga Alliance International.
