Lead Teacher

Melissa Corazon will be leading this training. Melissa is a Senior Yoga Teacher (Yoga Alliance UK) specializing in the practice and teaching of Yin & Restorative Yoga.
Here is what Melissa says about the training:
“My hope for this training is that it will give students the skills and confidence to be adaptable when teaching Yin Yoga. I’m used to teaching a very wide range of students and I think it’s so important that the practice is as accessible as possible. So after the training you will have the skills, not only to teach experienced and flexible yogis, but also beginners coming through the door for the first time – people of different ages and abilities. Another thing that is extremely important to me is that everyone feels welcome and comfortable and each student has the opportunity to take care and listen to their own bodies.”
