SELF-PACED ONLINE COURSE: 4 Modules, 46 Lessons, 5 Meditations, 10 CPD points

Learn to manage stress and prevent disease through relaxation meditation

Constant stress impacts your health, vitality, sleep, and all of your life experiences. Stress diminishes your life-force, weakens your immunity and makes you vulnerable to physical and mental illness.

The good news is that you can develop the skill of relaxation and create a healthy relaxation baseline. This means, that rather than being stressed all the time and being prone to mental and physical illness, calmness and resilience becomes your natural state of being. This enables you to rest more deeply, recuperate your energy, and recover from illness and stresses when they occur.

If you are feeling overwhelmed by constant stress and its impact on your health and well-being, the Relaxation Meditation course is designed just for you.

Created by Dr. Swami Shankardev Saraswati and Jayne Stevenson, this course equips you with the skills to manage stress effectively and create a foundation of calm and resilience.

Imagine being able to handle stress as it occurs, boost your immunity, and reduce tension anytime, anywhere. This course offers authentic training that combines yoga and meditation with Western medical knowledge to help you achieve deep, embodied healing. You’ll gain valuable insights into how stress affects your body and mind and learn practical techniques to release it, transforming stress into positive energy.

Don’t let stress control your life. Start your journey towards a healthier, more relaxed state of being today. Enrol now in the Relaxation Meditation course and take the first step towards a life of calm and vitality.

“The relaxation meditation course gave me excellent skills to pinpoint and release stress from my body and mind and superb coping strategies for high-stress situations. I loved the interactivity - creating/uploading my Sankalpa (resolve) and monitoring my stress (and relaxation) levels throughout the course. My growing awareness and ability to let go of stress at will is a godsend. Having direct contact with teachers Dr Swami Shankardev and Jayne Stevenson throughout the course was a blessing.”

“After taking your online relaxation meditation course, relaxation is becoming more natural in my daily activities, such as riding my bike to work, sitting at my desk, in meetings, talking to colleagues, and riding home in the rain. It's great to have learned the importance of relaxation, as I had never experienced meditation from that perspective before. It was also simply explained! I love that!”

“Swami Shankardev’s many years of intense yoga practice under the guidance of an accomplished master and personal experience of deep meditation and concentration provide him with firsthand knowledge and understanding of states of expanded consciousness that he aims to impart to his students and listeners. Consequently, his meditation instructions are simple yet powerful way of inducing a relaxation response and a healing sense of calm and serenity in beginners and a deeper meditative state and feeling of bliss in more experienced practitioners. ”

“Thank you so much, Big Shakti, for your excellent relaxation meditations. I have practiced almost daily for a year now, and it has brought me out of a severe exhaustion and depression. I have learned so much about myself and the importance of relaxation from this wonderful transformative practice. It's also made me a much better yoga teacher, as I now feel much freer from my own tensions and repressions. I also more fully understand the depth of exhaustion in our culture, and the importance of true deep relaxation. I now realize that we hold tensions on many levels, some very deep and subtle and not easily accessed or even recognized by us”
