“I loved the variety of teaching styles from her own experience, practice and discussion as well as lots of our own practice to see how things felt for us and our partners”

– Maddy

“I enjoyed the fluidity of the teaching which allowed me to make it my own and hopefully become a conscious and authentic teacher. Lots of time to experience and teach both Yoga Nidra and Restorative Yoga with great feedback from Dina and peers”

– Emma

This course is perfect for: 

Qualified yoga teachers, trainee yoga teachers, aspiring yoga teachers (although please be aware that you won’t be able to teach Mindfulness & Yoga Nidra until you have your 200 hour qualification).

Also for massage therapists, physiotherapists, body workers, counselors… in fact, anyone who works with minds and bodies, and who would like to deepen their understanding of the nervous system, the importance of rest, and the mind-body connection.

And anyone who would like to learn to rest; whether this is to practice rest and relaxation at home, or to encourage friends and family to indulge in rest. In this day and age, stress is so common. It’s more likely that we’ll be on the go, planning what’s next and trying to fit everything in. These practices help to counter-balance this; to encourage us to activate the ‘rest and digest’ response. This helps us find clarity, peace, creativity and rest.

    Dina Cohen Restorative Yoga Teacher Training Course

    About Dina:

    “Gradually moving away from an accidental career in music PR and a hedonistic lifestyle that was rapidly losing its lustre, I completed a Dynamic Yoga teacher training in Ibiza in 2000. It was an exercise in damage limitation rather than a premeditated career move. I didn’t choose teaching, it seemed to choose me, over and over again. And now, navigating my way through my autumn years, these tools are more pertinent than ever and I feel blessed to have received them.

    Yoga and mindfulness have enhanced my life and continue to do so in so many beneficial ways, it would be churlish not to share. My style is pragmatic, grounded in many years of practice and personal experience.

    As a Senior Teacher, my offerings have evolved along with my appetite for the softer forms of Yin and Restorative Yoga, Qi Gong, Mindfulness and Yoga Nidra, although Vinyasa Flow is still my primary practice. I am a mentor for trainee and new teachers,  a member of faculty on several trainings and I work for the charity Ourmala, teaching yoga to refugees and asylum seekers. I have held regular classes and workshops at the major studios around London including Triyoga and the Life Centre, and now run my own studio Goldendoor in London.”

      About Yoga Hero

      300 hour teacher training

      Yoga Hero has been established since March 2013. Initially, classes were ‘popping up’ in church halls, arts galleries, cafes, skateparks… you name it! Over time, we eventually found a beautiful home in Leeds Dock.

      Yoga Hero has three studios, one with a capacity of up to 80, one with a capacity of 20, and the third is perfect for small private groups or one to one sessions. At Yoga Hero, we offer everything from Introduction to Yoga Courses, Pay As You Feel Classes, up to 200 hour Foundation Teacher Training Qualifications and Further Training, such as Yin Yoga, Restorative Yoga, and much more!

      About Leeds Dock

      Leeds Dock

      Yoga Hero is based in a beautiful part of Leeds called Leeds Dock. Leeds Dock is a 10 minute walk from Leeds Train Station, or there’s a free water taxi service between the train station and the Dock!

      Around Leeds Dock are many affordable hotels, such as:
      * Holiday Inn Express (Two minutes’ walk)
      * Jury’s Inn (Five minutes’ walk)
      * Ibis (Five minutes’ walk)
      * Malmaison (Ten minutes’ walk)

      There are also many very reasonably priced AirBnBs on the Dock

      Leeds is a quite small city with loads going on. The whole city is walkable by foot, probably 40 minutes’ walk from one end to the other at a steady pace. There’s many independent restaurants and cafes, with our favourite North Star Coffee Shop just two doors down from the studio, serving incredible coffee and food during the day.

      If you have any questions about Leeds; what to do, where to stay, or how to get here, just ask the team: hello@yogahero.co.uk // 07743513225.

      Coronavirus Contingency Planning 

      Updated 22nd March 2021

      Should social distancing and / or lock down measures be in place to stop the spread of COVID-19, we will offer the Mindfulness and Yoga Nidra components of the course online, using Zoom or something similar. This would take place Friday 19th – Sunday 21st November 2021, 8:30am – 4:30pm.

      Our priority would be to hold the teacher training altogether in the Yoga Hero studio, however, should part or all of the training move online, it’s great to know that there are many benefits to attending an online training including:

      • You get to attend from your own home, so no travelling each morning and evening
      • We’re able to share slides with images and text in a digestible format
      • There’s real clarity to all the information
      • You’re able to record lectures for future reference

      It can feel alien at first to consider learning online, but we’ve experienced great success with this so far.

      Our Teacher Training team will keep you posted at all stages, and if learning online is not something that works for you, we would happily postpone your place to a future training.
