Maria Mascarenhas

United Kingdom
Total Yoga Nidra Teacher Training (with Yoga Nidra Network)

Maria is a yoga teacher based in Surrey.  She specialises in teaching Vinyasa Flow and Yin Yoga as well as guiding Yoga Nidra.  She initially guided short Yoga Nidras as part of weekly classes but the positive feedback she received from her students as well as the benefits she experienced herself, led her to investigate the practice more deeply.  She was delighted to discover the Yoga Nidra Network and completed her Total Yoga Nidra Teacher and Facilitator Training in 2016.  As well as still including short Yoga Nidras as part of her weekly classes and her beginner’s yoga courses, she also runs regular Yin Yoga and Yoga Nidra workshops as well as Yoga Nidra with Singing Bowl accompaniment to celebrate the four main festivals of the wheel of the year.  More information can be found at

When Maria isn’t teaching yoga, she spends much of her time outdoors, whether working in nature in either her garden or allotment or just spending time outdoors observing nature.  She encourages an awareness of nature and ourselves as nature in any of the practices she guides.

Contribute to the Yoga Nidra Network

We have chosen to offer these audio recordings freely. We do this because we know yoga nidra to be a valuable practice which we want to share widely. It does, however take a fair bit of time and effort to upload the recordings and maintain this site so you can use it.

If you feel you have benefitted from what you have heard or learnt from this site then please do consider making a contribution towards the maintenance and upkeep of the site. We’d appreciate that, and it would help to ensure we can continue to offer this services freely.

Thank You, Uma Dinsmore-Tuli and Nirlipta Tuli, Co-Founders, Yoga Nidra Network
