'Nadia's candles are so beautiful; like her, they bring a sense of peace, love and joy to the house.'
'There are not many people who are genuinely kind and enlightened who still have a sense of humour and a wry take on things. Nadia does and that carries into the things she makes. It's the contradiction I love, and her candles, which litter my house, have that inherent spirit.'
'We love Nadias candles at home! And when we are done, burning the candles, we use the glasses - they are in the kitchen, in the kids room, in the bathroom... everywhere!'
'Yoga with Nadia is gentle but disciplined. Challenging but soothing. She has taught me for many years and is a wonderful, unpretentious teacher.'
'I started practising yoga with Nadia after a back injury. I discovered a new range of movements and breathing exercises to help me heal and avoid more injuries. I am very grateful to Nadia that she opened me to a different way of taking care of my body, which is essential for every athlete.'

'Our people work hard, and have considerable influence across a wider workforce. If our organisation is to succeed, then our peoples' ongoing emotional, physical and spiritual health is of strategic significance. Nadia has worked with our business since September 2011 and has been pivotal in the development of a groundbreaking corporate retreat designed to help people re-establish that all important balance back into their busy lives, and there is no doubt that her influence will resonate for many years to come.
Nadia has supported the project from the very start, driving forward with the elements that she saw as essential. Her incredible skill and engaging personality have enabled our key people to experience the benefits of gentle yoga, physical exercise, healthy eating and meditation. The feedback from our people has been overwhelmingly positive, and a great many have returned to work and immediately implemented initiatives to reach out to their own staff and give them something to help improve their well being - this is exactly the level of impact we were looking for.
Nadia's impact in our business will be transformational. Our Wellness Retreats will have provided the environment to allow Nadia to share her skill and passion to care for others with nearly 200 people, giving each and every one of them a reminder to take care of themselves, but more importantly, an introduction to the techniques of yoga and meditation that for some will become a daily source of revitalisation.'Gillian Duggan MD Amey Community
‘After a class with Nadia I feel like I have done good to both my body and mind. Her classes help me release tensions in my body and her teaching is to me like reading pages of my favorite book; fun, relaxing, filling my need of learning. On the long term I noticed her teaching is opening my heart, body and mind.’
‘Nadia's wealth of experience is expressed through her supportive, down to earth approach to teaching yoga. Her energy and attention to detail enable students to develop an honest practice. Nadia's teaching is food for the soul and her classes for me feel like home.’
‘Nadia is the most amazing teacher; she always brings an enormous amount of beautiful positive energy to class. Her classes are challenging and fun and always leave me feeling uplifted, calm and wanting to go back.’
‘This will be my 3rd pregnancy in which I've attended all Nadia's classes.
Every class leaves me invigorated with energy yet calm. I also feel I learn the knowledge that my body knows how to birth without intervention.’
‘I love Nadia's classes because her approach is grounded and positive and I have the space and time to reflect both in body and soul. I find her classes uplifting and spacious and always look forward to the next one.’
‘Nadia's classes have changed my life. I have always felt supported and challenged, physically, emotionally and spiritually. Her down to earth wisdom, filled with humour, make her teaching inspirational, fun, unique.
Her deep understanding and appreciation of pregnancy and labour fills her classes with valuable information. I left every class feeling deeply touched, alive, connected to my body, my baby, and confident in my ability to give birth naturally, as I wanted. Nadia gave me the inspiration, the poetry, the smiles, the energy, the strength, the knowledge, to have a beautiful pregnancy, empowering natural births (VBAC), and a positive and loving transition into motherhood.’
‘I very much enjoyed the training and thought Nadia was excellent. I particularly enjoyed that Nadia taught us to think critically about why we are doing the postures and sequences and to consider what relevance they have for the pregnant woman. This included not just doing postures or sequences that are included in a Pregnancy Yoga book as this won’t apply for everyone. I also enjoyed Nadia as a teacher as I believe she was very generous in giving as much of her understanding and knowledge to us. I also liked the emphasis she placed on ‘softening’ in the woman’s approach to her body.’
‘Nadia is a real inspiration and kept the group engaged throughout. Her no nonsense approach was refreshing and felt like I learnt a huge amount in quite a short time.’
‘Nadia’s approach to teaching infused the whole room with a relaxed and friendly atmosphere which is something I hope to take with me when I teach my classes'.
I really enjoyed getting to know the others on the course and the sense of community was really strong. The final ceremony including sharing food was really amazing and a wonderful way to finish the course.’
