UNIVERSAL EMPRESS, Nadine McNeil, is a yoga teacher, speaker, transformational coach and humanitarian whose mission is to ignite infinite possibility in people around the world and share yoga with diverse underserved communities. Jamaican by birth, Nadine travels the globe teaching yoga, speaking at events and leading workshops.
Nadine discovered yoga while working with the United Nations, where she began practicing regularly to find balance and respite from the job’s emotional and physical demands.
During her 22 years with the UN, her assignments included stints in Sudan, Iraq and Kuwait, and in 2004 she served as head logistics specialist for UNICEF in response to Indonesia’s tsunami. After the 2010 earthquake in Haiti, Nadine led Global Volunteer Network initiatives in the country, and has also worked in the Netherlands with the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons.
These experiences have rooted Nadine’s continued devotion to activism, which she threads through all her yoga and transformational work. Inspired by her firsthand encounters with both the resilience of the human spirit and also its suffering, Nadine’s talks, workshops, yoga sessions and retreats are continually described as powerful, moving and insightful.
Two terms coined by her – the democratization of yoga; i.e., making it accessible to all humanity, and consciousness rising – playing a pivotal role in the ascension of individual and collective consciousness – are the driving catalysts behind her and her work.
