bnhc yoga teacher forum

Once or twice a term, as part of the BNHC Community Programme we are running an ongoing series of forums for local yoga teachers. This is either a free event or a fundraising workshop hosted by a guest teacher. All profits go to supporting our community outreach classes. Teachers, come along! Students, send your teacher!

Calling all yoga teachers...

Would you like a regular opportunity to meet with fellow teachers, share ideas about practice and reflect on your experiences?

Come along to our forum and join a yoga teaching community.  If you are interested in being part of our group, please email us at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it


Yoga Teacher Forum hosted by BNHC and run by the Brighton Yoga Foundation

Working with trauma in a yoga practice using iRest Yoga Nidra

with Paul Collins

Yoga Teacher Forum

For the past few years, we at the Brighton Natural Health Centre have been running an ongoing series of low-cost forums for local yoga teachers as part of our community programme. In 2017 we teamed up with the Brighton Yoga Foundation who now run these events hosted by us at Brighton Natural Health Centre. Details of the upcoming event below...

iRest Yoga Nidra is endorsed by the US Army Surgeon General for dealing with PTSD and is now used in over 30 VA hospitals as well as homeless shelters and other settings for people dealing with chronic physical pain, sleep issues, unseen mental health and emotional issues.

Paul Collins has worked with his Yoga practice that integrates the iRest protocol in Drug rehabs, mental health units, prisons, a hospice and with groups of military personal as well as private clients who have been deeply traumatised from all kinds of life experiences for the last 17 years. He will share his experience of working in these environments, offer an introduction to trauma sensitive Yoga and iRest Yoga Nidra as well as delivering an iRest Yoga Nidra practice.

Date: Sunday 11 June

Time: 1.30-3.30pm

Cost: £5. Open to local yoga teachers.

Brighton Natural Health Centre and Brighton Yoga Foundation are both registered charities with the aim of spreading the benefits of yoga and other mindful practices within our community. Any profits raised from this event will go towards the BNHC community programme and projects run by the Brighton Yoga Foundation.
