Nadia started out in the holistic field as a yoga teacher 16 years ago. Adding another modality, she then studied a specialized form of massage therapy called Rebalancing Deep Tissue Massage, which she has now practiced for 8 years. Her treatments combine this powerful modality with her experience with energy work in Reiki and Craniosacral Therapy to facilitate deep process and release. Nadia's understanding of this work is that attuned touch in the hands of another offers a crucial dimension in our journeys towards greater awareness, stress relief and detoxification on the path toward the simple, basic vitality and ultimate health of our beings.
Nadia also teaches Hatha/Vinyasa style yoga classes in Tamboerksloof.
Her yoga style is grounded in the gentleness of Hatha Yoga, her first love in yoga, which so powerfully combines movement and breath and takes us, on what she refers to as, the beautiful internal journey. She also draws from Iyengar yoga, which she studied for 5 years. Finally, her work is heavily influenced by that of Orit Sun Gupta, an internationally-recognised yoga teacher who wrote the book "Body of Light" with Donna Holleman and with whom Nadia studied for a while in Jerusalem. This style of Vijnaya yoga includes dynamic , flowing sequences that grow out of precise principles of alignment, specifically with regard to letting our poses unfold naturally out of our rootedness into the earth.
Classes in Tamboerksloof are on:
Wed 6pm (general), Thurs 6pm (beginner's), Friday 8 am (gentle - suitable for seniors)
She also teaches a powerful course The Elements of Yoga that looks to nature to take us on a journey with yoga to discover our possibilities and potentials and that powerfully also explores our journey with yoga through the framework of nature. For more info see www.earthyoga.co.za.
