With over 20 years Yoga Nidra Teaching experience, Melanie has developed this in-depth training to allow teachers to connect with this magical practice and fall in love with sharing it.
A deeply transformative practice, Nidra can help us de-stress, it can help us sleep, it can boost our creativity and help us meditate deeply. This practice is the ultimate inclusive Yoga Practice – for every body!
Nidra can be a stand alone class or fit well at the end of a yin or flow class. It can be a 5 minute body scan or a 45 minute journey through the stars. Join Melanie as she brings a fresh, open, non-dogmatic look at all the main modern schools and encourage you to find YOUR Nidra voice.
To date, Melanie has trained 1000 teachers in Yoga Nidra (and counting) – you’re in safe and experienced hands!
