Nina's upbringing deeply influenced her approach to wellness. Her own chronic health issues and childhood trauma prompted her to leave her job in fashion – and deepen her practice which ultimately led her down the teaching path. She studied with some of the best in New York, and continues to seek guidance and expand through daily meditation, books, music, and movement.
She believes in the healing power of stillness, love, and acceptance. She guides but more importantly empowers students to live in their truth and align with their soul purpose. Nina is deeply committed to this work and feels it’s an honor to provide a safe and supportive space for people to thrive. She is a nurturer, certified yoga + meditation guide, reiki practitioner, writer and spiritual mentor. She is currently based in Hudson, NY.
What people are saying -
Nina is a force to be reckoned with, and I am grateful every day that I took the leap to complete this mentorship with her. She taught me to challenge myself, equally soften myself, and helped shed light on gifts I had been ignoring. She holds a supportive space for her clients. By the end I felt a release of energy I had been holding for too long, and a lighter and brighter outlook on my relationships, career, practice and sense of self. The harmony I feel in my life today is a direct reflection of nina and her commitment to this work.

There are no simple words for what my time working with Nina has been. Nothing short of magical + transformational. The woman is gold! What started as distance private yoga sessions evolved into a mentorship that has helped me not only find my voice and but to truly connect to myself. Nina held supportive and safe space for real inner healing to be done and she did this with grace + ease. Through my work with Nina I was able to learn how to live from a heart centered place, grounded for what may be the first time in my life. I am now equipped with tools that will stick with me for life. However you may find yourself working with Nina, you can be sure you will leave feeling a little more whole and in some way a little closer to home. Thank you for your undeniable magic!

Recently, someone asked me if my mentorship with Nina was worth the investment. Without hesitation, I said "not only was it worth it, but it is the best time and money I've ever spent in my life". Truly, it is. I came into the mentorship looking to extend my yoga teacher training, but through Nina's guidance, deep work and exploration, she helped me discover an entirely new path for myself. Coming out of this mentorship, I feel full. Nina helped ignite my inner passion, increase my confidence, and all around wake me up. Nina has changed my life and she will change yours. My only regret? Not finding her sooner :)

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 :)

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.
