"Training with Malaika has been a beautiful and essential experience for me on both a personal level and as a professional yoga teacher. She welcomes her students with ease and an open heart. The supportive materials and requirements for this training provided a nice balance of reading, personal practice, study, one-on-one guidance and so on. I'm so thankful for this experience and look forward to more continuing education trainings and workshops with Malaika."

I am extremely grateful for the experience of having Malaika as my teacher and mentor for Awakening the Soul Yoga Nidra Teacher Training. Her enthusiasm and love for the practice of Yoga Nidra are contagious!
Being able to do this training at my own pace was very helpful. And when I personally needed to pick up the pace at the end, Malaika was very supportive and flexible in setting up our one to one meetings. The knowledge, experience and teaching techniques that I have gained from the content of this training have deepened my understanding and love for Yoga Nidra far beyond my expectations. I have enjoyed many classes, workshops and trainings with Malaika over the past several years and this was by far the most personally enlightening one for me as I peeled back another layer or two on my journey to Self.
With Malaika there is a welcoming ease and calmness but with a spark of uplifting energy. And this equanimity makes the experience feel more like a collaboration in some ways and not just teacher and student. I’m so thankful I chose to take this training with Malaika as the mentorship part of my 300hr YTT and look forward to future workshops and trainings with her! Namaste

Awakening the Soul training with Malaika Dos Remedios is aptly named. Over the course of this program (which is as spacious as I let it be) I deepened my internal awareness, got clarity in my intention, and tapped into my deep seated free will and confidence. I've taken great (and skillful) leaps of faith in the last year, moving with Ishvara Pranidana. The self led pace of the program helped me find meaningful and practical ways to incorporate Yoga Nidra into my life without a feeling of massive guilt if I didn't progress at a certain pace--rather the practice and teachings opened at the pace they were meant to for me. Working one on one with Malaika allowed me to connect on a more personal level and receive the support I needed.
