Meet Nanada in 2016 and 2017 in our Yoga shala
Yoga became a regular practice for Nanda more than 10 years ago. The meditative and spiritual side of yoga seemed to be still out of reach for her. She was curious and eager to learn more. After a couple of years she decided to leave all behind to do something that she truly enjoyed and wanted to learn more about; Yoga. About 6 years ago she signed up for a Yoga teacher training in Thailand and a week of detoxing (juice fasting). It was a life changing experience.
After the YTT she started as a Yoga teacher in Thailand at a retreat center where she created Hatha yoga/Yin yoga as well as Vinyasa yoga based classes. During her time she also managed to get extensive knoledge in Thai massage and Oil Massage. Detoxing also still had her interest and she got a job as a manager in a Detox center.
Her classes are focused on breath and body awareness, with the intention to create with this focus a moving meditation from the beginning till the end of the class. Her goal is to create a class where students can practice with joy and self awareness all the asanas in a continuous flow, guided by the breath. With your breath as a tool, she guides you through sometimes challenging poses with softness and stillness of the mind. She hopes to inspire students to incorporate this awareness in their daily lives

Massage involves working and acting on the body with pressure – structured, unstructured, stationary, or moving – tension, motion, or vibration, done manually or with mechanical aids. Massage can be applied with the hands, fingers, elbows, knees, forearm, feet or a massage device. Massage can promote relaxation and well-being
Styles we offer
It’s a 2500 years old massage style. It uses passive stretching and gentle pressure along the body’s energy lines to increase flexibility, relieve muscle and joint tension and balance the body’s energy systems. Thai massage is both deeply relaxing and energizing.
Thai massage takes place on a futon mat on the floor, and you wear loose fitting clothing. You start by laying on your back, and the therapist uses gentle compression and stretching techniques to open up your body, beginning with you legs. Some people say Thai massage is a little like doing yoga without any effort, because the therapist will push your body into various positions without any work on your part.
Swedish massage therapy is the modality that comes to mind when most people think about massage. As the best-known type of bodywork performed today, one of the primary goals of the Swedish massage technique is to relax the entire body. This is accomplished by rubbing the muscles with long gliding strokes in the direction of blood returning to the heart. But Swedish massage therapy goes beyond relaxation. Swedish massage is exceptionally beneficial for increasing the level of oxygen in the blood, decreasing muscle toxins, improving circulation and flexibility while easing tension.
The goal of meditation is to focus and quiet your mind, eventually reaching a higher level of awareness and inner calm. It may come as a surprise to learn that you can meditate anywhere and at any time, allowing yourself to access a sense of tranquility and peace no matter what's going on around you. Our yoga teachers are happy to lead your mediation before the daily yoga classes.
