Nadine McNeil is the founder of the BadAsana Series ©: Yoga with Weights. This Yoga Alliance [CE] certified program is one that integrates 1 to 3 kgs weights intelligently within a hatha-vinyasa flow practice. The purpose of this synergistic practice to support the body in building physical strength, endurance and stamina, while respecting and adhering to the main tenets of yoga, primarily through breath and alignment awareness.

Her mission as a yoga teacher, speaker, wisdom mentor and humanitarian is to ignite infinite possibility in people around the world and share yoga with diverse underserved communities.
Prior to her deep dive into yoga in 2008, Nadine travelled the world in service of the UN, UNICEF, Global Volunteer Network and Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons for nearly two decades. These and other experiences rooted Nadine’s continued devotion to activism.

Inspired by her firsthand encounters with both the resilience of the human spirit and also its suffering, Nadine’s talks, workshops, yoga sessions, Women’s Circles and retreats are continually described as powerful, moving and insightful.  As her Women’s Circles continue to gain global traction, women from across the world who have sat with her in Circle, have returned to their communities to offer this necessary and important work. Her mantra for this work is: when one of us suffers we all suffer. Yet when one of us heals, we all heal.

When she’s not traveling, Nadine may be found living and teaching in Ubud, Bali, Indonesia at the Yoga Barn, the largest yoga and wellness facility in South East Asia.
