If you’re further along, Nadja can elevate your practice with adjustments, alignment, form, breath, and mental focus. Often times, students get into stuck in a routine with group classes and plateau.

Here are a few things people say about Nadja. If you are an existing student, feel free to submit your review.
Nadja is such an inspiring yoga instructor! Her classes are playful, challenging, and rejuvenating. I love her lighthearted personality, and the caring attention she gives to each student. I’ve attended Vinyasa, Restorative, and Yin yoga classes with Nadja and after each class I leave feeling amazing! Thank you Nadja for sharing your knowledge, kindness and… love for yoga with me! read more “”
I seriously look forward to every single session with Nadja. She has become such an important part of my life since I began as a private client of hers. Every class is different and tailored to what my needs are that day. She is extremely adaptable and creative in teaching her practice and making it… work for me and for my body. She goes above and beyond for her clients and even lets me bring my dog to the yoga room where we meet. We call it Doga! At the end of every class, she offers me time for a savasana with essential oils and acupressure, which has become a very healing and poignant part of each session for me. Nadja is the real deal and embodies the type of yogi and person that we all can be inspired by. Xoxo Leeanne read more “I seriously look forward to”
I’ve been practicing yoga for several years now, on and off with teachers and by myself. Hands down Nadja is the best teacher that I’ve had. I go into her classes stressed and stiff and I come out feeling stretched, balanced, and peaceful. She has a great repertoire of poses and the transitions and flow… between the poses is smooth and natural. She also does a bit of aromatherapy at the end which is so calming. I am so glad Nadja is our yoga teacher. read more “”
Nadja is a sensitive, caring teacher who offers private yoga sessions as well as group classes. Since everybody is unique, her approach to yoga is also individualized, not a one size fits all. In her classes, she works a lot with breath work, meditation and asana to achieve balance. She also offers several options as… modifications because her emphasis is on functionality rather than aesthetics. I would highly recommend Nadja! read more “Nadja is a sensitive, caring teacher”
I would highly recommend any yoga class taught by Nadja. She creates a welcoming environment for all students and encourages an educational dialog when teaching new poses. Nadja also excels at creating a balanced class that challenges a student’s balance, strength, and stretching ability. If you’re lucky enough to attend more than one of Nadja’s… classes per week you’ll find that the classes complement each other. Some classes focus on balance with core work while others focus on strength with back work, this results in a comprehensive yoga workout over the week. The best thing about Nadja is that she constantly improves her yoga classes by observing the class and taking feedback from students. This keeps me feeling challenged and satisfied after every yoga class. I would definitely encourage anyone to take a yoga class from Nadja. read more “”
I love Nadja’s Yin Yoga classes! I’ve been going to her classes twice a week for about 6 months, and I feel so good after each class. She’s inspired me to commit to Yin Yoga as a regular part of my weekly practice. I highly recommend her!

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.
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.
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 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.
