Tribe Leaders Spotlight: Nina, yoga teacher

Updated: Jan 26, 2021

Meet Nina

She is the founder of Yoga in English with Nina, a yoga teacher passionate about teaching yoga according to the unique requirements of the individual.

Originally from England, she has been living and teaching in Bangkok Thailand for the past 12 years. The huge cultural difference she experienced was initially a challenge, yet has positively shaped her into the person that she is today. During her time in Asia, she learned about Thai cultural values and applied them to herself to create a positive outlook on life and to live more in the present moment. She appreciates the little things in life. Her previous job was as an International School Teacher so she has always enjoyed teaching others. Then through her passion for practicing yoga, she’s found what she really loves to do by combining the two: Yoga and Teaching!

She immersed herself in the ancient Asian yogic methods including learning Thai massage; its this knowledge that she brings to Lyon. Even when she is working, she doesn’t feel like she’s ‘working’. She teaches all of her classes here in Lyon in English to all levels so everyone can enjoy the benefits that yoga brings to the body as well as the mind.

Nina, tell us about YOU, what do you like doing in your daily life?

Having a nice big breakfast with English tea of course. I’m always cycling all over the city to teach classes, I’m an ultra-trail runner so I run a lot and I regularly practice my yoga and meditation. I’m always meeting up with friends as those relationships are very important to me. As I don’t have a Monday to Friday job I feel like l have loads of freedom and everyday is different.

Can you summarise what you are currently working on?
