Although Danish born and raised, Nina’s yoga journey started over a decade ago whilst living in England, as a means to counter-act what years of competitive horse riding had done to her body. She is now a Yoga Alliance certified yoga teacher trained in Hatha, Core Strength Vinyasa and Smart Flow. Always seeking a deeper understanding of yoga and movement, she is currently pursuing her 500 hrs YTT in Smart Flow with Annie Carpenter.
Nina is a self-confessed anatomy geek, but likes bending the rules and challenge yoga dogma. Her approach to asana is based on bio-mechanic intelligence and curiosity blended with classic yoga principles, which has resulted in her very own dynamic and unique style. She is known for her ability to break down handstands and arm balances, a subject on which she has taught workshops in Europe, Asia and the US. Nina works from the principle that asana is a union of strength, flexibility, balance and breath, but also thinks it imperative to inject playfulness and fun into her practice and teaching.
Her teaching is about personal empowerment, developing body intelligence and creating awe, amazement and gratefulness for your own body and its capabilities. Nina aims to give her students strong, safe practices, which includes them understanding and respecting their unique body. She works from the concept that we are all our own guru: Her job as a teacher is to introduce you to your own power and help you find peace and presence through movement.
