Welcome to my journey.
Nadja is a San Francisco Bay Area, Silicon Valley yoga teacher who started yoga as a cure for her blues. Not far into her practice she realized that yoga is much more than asana and cool yoga pants. By combining the body and mind through the rhythm of breath, yoga became not just a practice, but a path to a better way of life.
To help students get the most out of their practice from her class, Nadja teaches with a focus on proper form before the flair and awareness of breath. She incorporates modifications and alternate poses to ensure that each person is able to participate throughout the class at a level that is comfortable to them. With yoga, one size does not fit all.
While Nadja teaches at all levels, she has a soft spot for beginners who deserve a patient and solid start for their transformative journey. Join her for a fun, friendly, yet challenging blend of the physical and spiritual worlds that comprise yoga.
Nadja is a certified YACEP (Yoga Alliance Continuing Education Provider, teacher for teachers), E-RYT 200 (Experienced Registered Yoga Teacher) and RPYT (Registered Prenatal Yoga Teacher) by Yoga Alliance. She is a YTT-F (Yoga Teacher Training Faculty Member) at EastWest Yoga and a Reiki practitioner. She specializes in Yin Yoga, Yoga Therapy, Gentle/Restorative, Meditation, Hatha and Prenatal Yoga integrating multiple aspects of yoga including Pranayama, Mudra, and Mindfulness.
She also continually advances her education through workshops and trainings.
Nadja is a wandering spirit, captivated by art, creativity, and new experiences in life. At home, she enjoys sharing her own practice with her two sphynx cats. Off the mat, Nadja earned a BA in Graphic Design Studies and Photographic Arts from San Jose State, and is a graphic designer, global trotter, cat lover, tea aficionado, and cacti admirer. For the latest scoop, follow her on instagram and twitter.
