Nadia was encouraged to attend her first yoga class by a friend in 2009. Going to this class would prove to uncover a passion she hadn’t known before and set her down a new life path. As her practice developed, Nadia quickly began to notice subtle changes happening within herself and the world around her. “I started making healthier decisions in my everyday life and felt much more grounded and calm in an often hectic world. I found that yoga was a full-proof method for making me feel good. Every time I stepped on my mat, I felt better than I had before, both physically and mentally. Once I had that realization, there was no looking back and yoga became a constant in my life.”
In 2012 Nadia completed a 200-hour Ashtanga Vinyasa training with It’s Yoga in San Francisco and continued her studies with a 50-hour training in the Rocket Vinyasa method. She also completed the Balanced Body Pilates Mat 1&2 at EHS Pilates and loves to incorporate Pilates core work into her teachings. Nadia has completed numerous continuing education hours including Trauma Informed, Theraputic and Prenatal yoga trainings. She plans to complete her 500-hour certification by the end of 2019.
In class, Nadia seeks to foster a comfortable environment where all are safe and welcome. Focus is particularly on breath and alignment with the intention of moving safely and creating space in the body. With this comes clarity in the mind and the ability to create true transformation. Nadia encourages students to maintain a regular practice and experience how yoga can be relevant in all aspects of life.
