The style of yoga Nina teaches is fluid in principle with some longer holds, and the pace ranges from slow to dynamic – depending on the theme or level of the class. All her classes have a strong focus on connecting movement to your breath, exploring and finding appropriate alignment for you in your body, and allowing you to experience and find your yoga practice in a playful yet safe environment.
