Teacher Bio

Melanie Cooper (E-RYT 500) & Jennie Wadsten(E-RYT 500) 

Melanie and Jennie have worked together for 10 years (yoga teacher trainings and retreats in India and Europe) and have 22 + 15 years full time experience of teaching yoga and teacher trainings. They have extensive experience teaching yoga and yoga teacher trainings – and what they keep coming back to is how important it is to be authentic, to find “your voice” as a teacher and to have the courage to be YOURSELF when you are teaching.

Working as a yoga teacher is amazing – but it also takes a lot of energy – and can be very draining if you do not look after yourself. It’s very easy to not give ourselves that time/attention/self care – so in the training we will also place emphasis on how to create space for your own health and practice: to stay balanced and mentally strong.
