Who is your facilitator: Sidney Urban has been dancing ever since she was five years old. In 2017 she completed a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Dance at The Victorian College of the Arts where she began to flourish as an artist and explore the world of Yoga. Performing in multiple festivals around Australia and overseas led her to discover Kundalini Yoga. Sidney decided to further her practice by travelling to India where she completed her 200hr Kundalini Yoga Teacher Training Course with Nada Yoga School. Since then Sidney has also completed a 50hr Yin Yoga Teacher Training Course with Mel Mclaughlin in Byron Bay. Today she teaches both Kundalini, Yin and a fusion of the two by incorporating philosophy, mantras, held poses, breath-work, meditation and more. She is also a Chakra Practitioner practicing one-on-one with clients to help guide them on their journey of chakra alignment through reiki and chanting. Sidney wishes to share these practices to help others learn how to clear their mind, release tension from their bodies and to find balance and harmony within this life.
