Nina walked into her first yoga class intending to work through an injured knee and leg … as that rehabilitative process took shape, she began to notice that not only her leg was healing, but also her attitudes, her esteem, her selfhood. Having soon fallen completely in love with both the mental and physical practices of yoga, Nina set out to change the direction of her life and become a teacher of yoga and the subtle body. Having now taught more than 1,200 classes, Nina is an E-RYT-200 instructor working toward her next certification level.
At an early age Josephine discovered the physical practice of Hatha yoga, and made the study and practice of asana a part of her life. As she travelled through Europe, the Middle East, Africa and India she was blessed to have many teachers who inspired her to deepen her study. Josephine’s philosophy on yoga, is that she is the fortunate one, who is given the opportunity to share, and inspire others to practice. Her style of teaching is fundamentally alignment based. She aims to create a safe environment so that the asanas are fun, flowing, and at times challenging.
