Thank you for the kind words. - xo Nina
Not only is Nina an exquisite yoga teacher, but a magnificent spirit. On multiple trips to Tulum I've been in awe of taking her classes and receiving her gifts as a teacher and healer. The way she teaches is accessible to all levels of yoga practioners, and her ability to be authentic and inspiring at the same time makes for the ideal yoga experience. Whether it's just as student in one of her classes or arranging to have her teach 17 of us girls (not kidding!) and share her skills with tarot, it is all seamless and oh so enjoyable. Truly grateful I found her and anyone who is able to take her class is truly lucky. I can't wait to make it to one of her retreats and connect with her again :)
biggest, realest love.

Nina is magic!
She's pure spirit, but still human and a bad ass human at that!
Her teaching style encompasses everyone's levels and her ability to connect is magnetic. She reminded me that I can still embody the pureness of myself with all the raw edges and embrace my truth. A big group of us were in Tulum celebrating a bachelorette party and Nina taught us yoga + pulled tarot! She's relatable and beautifully inspiring. Thank you Nina for sharing your knowledge and your light.

Nina is everything I look for in a Yoga instructor, and then some. She has this incredible ability to read the energy of the individuals in her class and channel that into a flow that seems to touch every part of your physical and emotional being in all the right ways. Her classes are always just enough movement to feel that you're strengthening your body, combined with a beautiful insight and wisdom that open your mind, which in my case resulted in a state of euphoria.
She is amazing and I wish I could have brought her back to New York with me! I left Tulum in complete bliss, a total tribute to Nina's teaching.

Nina lights up every space she enters. Her magnetism and deep understanding of yoga is both inspiring and transformative. Nina holds space for her students to feel both safe and adventurous in movement of body and spirit. Nina goes beyond the asana and invites a very spiritual and meditative practice. I discovered my personal meditation practice through the inspiration and encouragement of Nina's classes. With her knowledge and discipline, she invites students to explore beyond their limits and discover inner self. It's always a joy to be part of Nina's classes, and I look forward to more in the future. Thank you for your knowledge and beautiful spirit that radiates inside and out.

I spent a week with Nina in Tulum and it was wonderful. She is patient and supportive and teaches in a way that is accessible to all levels. I have been practicing yoga off and on for almost 40 years and there were people in our group who were beginners.
And she was able to teach in a way that worked for everyone in the group.
That is difficult to pull off!
She teaches with kindness, humility, and respect for her students and understands that they each know their own bodies best.
The 5 days that I spent in her retreat were 5 of the best days of my life!
Do it!!! … You won’t regret it.

Nina made an effort to make a personal connection with everyone in class.
Her patient and kind instruction taught me things about my yoga practice I was unaware of and make a point to implement during my current yoga practice. I loved that the schedule of the retreat allowed time for excursions, shopping and beach time. I made lifelong friendships and found this trip to be spiritually and emotionally rewarding.

I had the pleasure of attending a yoga reTREAT in January with my best friend. The rooms were quaint with a rustic vibe. The food was prepared fresh and very delicious.
My favorite part of the journey was our yoga teacher Nina. She held such a safe space for us to explore our breath, body, and expand our hearts. I had several emotional breakthroughs thanks to Nina's supportive nature and her awareness to connect to her students needs in the moment.
I would definitely return.

My BFF and I were treated to a last minute getaway, to the ecclectic Utopia. We loved Tulum, the food was fantastic; but what made the vacation was the awesome yoga, taught by Nina. I, myself, am a yoga teacher, and Nina created such an awesome vibe, that I was actually able to really feel like a student again. Nina was incredibly nurturing, and managed all the different needs of the retreat group, with such grace and ease. I can't wait to go on one of her retreats again

Thank you for an incredible experience filled with love at Utopia with the most joyful and knowledgeable healers and teachers... Yoga twice a day with Nina by the Ocean was one of the most healing practices I've ever done for myself.
I reccomend this retreat for its healing nature and the incredible authenticity of all the staff.
