She finds the nature of yoga practice with its balance of opening and strengthening the body, synchronised with meditation and pranayama (breath control) to have a profound impact on any practitioner, ongoing beyond the mat and into daily life.
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.
