Nina – Assistant Studio Manager

Name…
Nina

My favourite way to spend my free time is…
a long walk amongst the trees (preferably surrounded by mountains!) with my gorgeous boys. Watching my boys climb trees and play and really live in and enjoy every moment – because they remind me to do the same.

The things I love most are
yoga, juicing, sprouting, meditating, reading, sunrises, sunsets, fires, picnics, summer days, holding hands and making lists! (I do love a good list!). Cooking, reading, chatting, movie nights with my boys is pretty awesome too!

The reason I first came to yoga is…
I bought my first yoga book and attended my first class when I was 19 – I loved to see the beautiful shapes made by the yogis. Now it is less about the shapes and much more about taking the yoga off the mat and into my life. I love the balance and sense of well-being yoga brings to my life.

The next step on my yoga journey is…
cultivating what I learn on my mat and bringing this into my life.

The special quality I bring to Whitespace is…
to work hard whilst having fun!

My favourite thing about working here is…
the students, the team, the teachers, the boss, the studios, the building – oh that’s everything! I love being a tinsy part of the Whitespace family.

What’s your favourite pose and why?
ardha chandrasana – I love the concentration and focus that’s necessary for this pose, yet it is so much fun too! You really have to put it all together for this pose to work – the grounding, the alignment, balancing from your centre, opening up your heart, finding that space between softness and strength, the drishti, and of course the breath.

The biggest thing Yoga has taught you?
it’s about the journey, not the destination – enjoy it all!

A fun fact about me…
(my dark side) – scaring my children and laughing my socks off!!!
