"Leap, and the net will appear" - Zen proverb
It was these words, leap, and the net will appear, amongst years of practice, which led to me becoming a yoga teacher, a writer, and a restorative yoga and yoga nidra advocate. I became a qualified yoga teacher in 2014, and since then have spent time undertaking intensive study with a number of skilled and inspirational teachers, either face to face or through literature. In that time I discovered more about myself than I would have ever thought possible and I now am very grateful to be able to teach classes, workshops and retreats to groups and work one-to-one with clients experiencing anxiety, depression, stress, low self esteem, menstrual difficulties and more.
I have specialised my training in restorative yoga, yoga nidra and yoga for women’s wellbeing (although I love to practice all forms of yoga) and I am fascinated by the body’s capacity to heal itself, and the mind’s potential for expansion. I contribute to the online resource Yoga Nidra Network, write my own blogs (http://www.melskinneryoga.com/blog) and have contributed the Yoga London blog, writing on practical philosophy. In 2020 my first book, Rest Is Radical, will be published by Aeon.Books
