As a childhood dancer, NADIA NOELLE ZOHBE felt best when in tune with her body and mind. Nadia found her love for yoga and discovered the practice while navigating the struggles of anxiety and body image issues at the age of twenty one. Nadia Zohbe has been an active yoga practitioner for the past 7 years. She received her RYT-200 hour training from The School of Royal Yoga in 2012, and has been teaching ever since. Yoga has taught her to be aware of her breath in every situation, for it is her compass home. Nadia has dedicated her life to sharing this practice with the world to improve and motivate the health and growth of others. As a heart based teacher, she believes that the yoga practice should help one release layers of the ego to find a more authentic place internally, while cultivating strength in the body, calling the mind. Nadia's teachings focus on purposeful breathing, transitions, and postures that challenge and inspire students to build physical and mental strength.
A true believer that yoga creates inner strength and healing, Nadia views sharing the gift of yoga as a constant privilege.
