It is said that Yoga is a mind-body experience that radically changes the way you perceive the world around you. I didn’t realise the truth until I discovered Yoga for myself. It is difficult to describe in words, but I hope that by coming to a Yoga class in Scotland with me, you will discover the benefits for yourself.

I encountered yoga whilst traveling in 2003 and it has been a journey of self-exploration since then. Yoga became such a huge influence in my life that if I wasn’t physically doing it I was thinking about it. This is when I realised my path would be to teach others the beauty of Yoga.
Finding my one on one teacher whilst in India changed my life forever and I continued with my daily practise once I moved back to England. After a lot of research, I discovered a very serious Yoga teacher in London and I would drive 3 hours approximately 5 times a week to practise with him.

I completed my first 200 hour teacher training in India in 2011 at the Sivananda Yoga Ashram, Kerala and started teaching immediately in India and Thailand for the following 3 months. Upon my return to Oxford I began teaching private clients. In 2014 I completed my second 200 hour training programme in Vinyasa Yoga, this time in Dharamshala, Northern India.

I am a certified Vinyasa and Sivananda teacher and a registered Yoga teacher by Yoga Alliance. I have been teaching private and group classes in person and online via Zoom, so I can share the knowledge and experience that I have gained over the years.

At the end of 2020 I moved with my family to the beautiful village of Dyke, Forres and I look to continue offering online and in person Yoga classes in and around Morayshire. I offer group classes which is a lovely way to meet others and share a practise, as well as private sessions which are lovingly created around your requirements or expectations. Yoga classes in Scotland: Dyke, Forres, Brodie. I will travel outside of these areas for private and corporate classes, please do get in touch for more information.


Nadia is the best yoga teacher I’ve had. She is knowledgable and experienced but also gentle and compassionate, especially with beginners. I would recommend her classes to anyone. She uses familiar vinyasa flows alongside more challenging poses which vary week by week, and she always makes time for relaxation and an (optional) breathing practice at the end of class. During 2020 when we’ve been stuck at home her virtual classes have been an absolute lifeline and have brightened up my Friday each week. Thank you Nadia!

I have been practicing yoga for many years now and Nadia was my first teacher. I knew straight away that she was incredibly special - she has such a open and generous nature, bringing an ease and flow to classes, both with movement and with breath. Since then I have tried different types of yoga with different teachers but I am always drawn back to her classes. Everyone - beginners and those who are more advanced, young and old - can join together and feel a deep sense of connection during her classes, along with laughter and a beautiful sense of wellbeing.
