As she continued practising, a positive pattern of joy and wellness emerged. Nina started teaching hatha vinyasa yoga in 2010 at Yogeshyam Ashram, after years of being a student and discovering her natural holistic wellbeing.
At the time she discovered a unique style – fertility yoga – and in 2011 after months of practising, detoxifying her body and meditating she was able to conceive.
