Nadya came to yoga 15 years ago, looking for a way to de-stress after a long day at an office desk on Wall Street. Discovering a deeper interest in eastern philosophy and yoga, Nadya embarked on a quest around the globe, traveled to China, Tibet and Nepal, and participated in a two-month Ashtanga Yoga intensive at the Holistic Yoga Ashrama in Kathmandu. Later, while in London UK, Nadya received a Hatha Yoga Teacher Certification from The Yoga Education Institute and, in addition, studied pre-natal Yoga. Later, she received a Yoga Alliance Certification from Mama Nirvana’s Teacher Training program in Amherst, MA. Originally from Kazakhstan, Nadya is fluent in Russian and conversant in Mandarin, with background and degrees in International Relations, East Asian Studies, Social Anthropology, and Education. She lives in Montague, MA with her husband and 4 young children. Learn more about Nadya and her journey to teaching Yoga here.
