A note from your trainer Nathalie :


" First I like to say that Yoga Nidra is a powerful practice, it has changed my life in profound and significant ways. There is so much healing in this practice. 


Think of this program as East meets West. It will be an in depth combination of both. Which in my opinion is one of the many awesome things which makes Yoga Nidra so special. 


I have been guiding students in Yoga Nidra for the past decade. As well as I practice Yoga Nidra on a consistent basis and have witnessed so many transformational changes both in my life and with my clients. This is one of the most powerful practices I have ever come across and I am so excited to share with you my extensive research on yoga nidra over the many years, as well as my own energetic gifts on how I guide my sessions and the techniques that I have tested, experienced and seen amazing results while working with clients.


I offer yoga nidra sessions both privately and in group settings : online and in person. 


Now more than ever I find it is the time to dig deep into this magical practice and share it with the world in a much needed time."
