MEET YOUR GUIDES.

  ANNIKA SAIGI   Yoga and Meditation Teacher   Hi my name is Annika and I am a 500 hour + RYT Yoga instructor as well as the founder of this wonderful space I have the pleasure of sharing with so many beautiful people.  Starting with classes in the local neighbourhood centre, I was awe inspired by the positive energy of the students that were so passionate about working on their wellness. In what seemed like a flash, we were then able to string the pieces together to create Nin Yoga, their own intimate space that will always be welcoming, affordable and fun.  Growing up in St Marys, I always knew this end of town had more to it than it seems, and it’s been an absolute honour to be able to bring Yoga to Western Sydney.

  PAIGE FRANCIS   Yoga and Meditation Teacher   I first found yoga as a means of support for my anxiety. Meditation and pranayama have since been a regular practice for me. The more yoga i did the better I coped with life and the more I shared yoga the more I saw how it can help everyone.    I made my journey into teaching to give back to something that has given me so much! Yoga is a means to observe yourself as you are here and now so you can better move forward. It is an act of self awareness and self kindness that may result in growth - but the aim of yoga is not to change yourself but rather be aware of your true self.

  KRYSTAL BERTRAND   Yoga & Kids Yoga Teacher   When I started practising yoga I was not expecting to fall in love with it so much! I quickly realised that it was so much more than a series of poses. Practising yoga on a regular basis has done wonders for my mind, body and soul, especially on my mental and emotional well being.  That is when I realised I wanted to spread this amazing gift on to children and enrolled into kids yoga teacher training (which I completed in Dec 2017). I want to inspire children to be the best version of themselves, to love themselves unconditionally without needing the approval of anyone else. To have self belief and a powerful clear mind and the emotional stability to back it up! I truly believe yoga can help achieve all of this and more! I am continuing my teacher training and will be completing 200 hour level 1 later this year.

  CLAIRE EVA   Yoga, Meditation and Prenatal Teacher   I enjoy filling my classes with a range of different styles of yoga and focus on moving from a space where we are honouring our bodies and how we feel each day.  I fell in love with teaching Yoga because I believe in a busy, fast paced world where it is easy to get caught up in negative old patterns and living mindlessly; Yoga allows us to slow down and be present within ourselves, to start to move from a place of purpose and intention, allowing us to let go of what is no longer serving us and manifest what we truly want to bring into our lives - both on and off the mat.  So let's roll out our mats, have some fun and grow together.

  DANIEL NUNNARI   Qi Gong Teacher   Qi Gong has been an important part of my life for many years. Since beginning the practice I've improved my health and wellbeing significantly; I now have more energy to do the things I love, better sleep and I feel much more relaxed throughout the day.  The deep breathing and dynamic movements create the perfect environment for the mind and body to synergise.  It is the fundamental practice that helps connect and balance everything in life, it has done this for me and I wish to share this with everyone.  Through Qi Gong... "Breathe more, Move more

  BRIANNA LAW   Yoga Teacher   As a freelance dancer, I initially started practising the physical aspects of yoga, as a way to meet the rigorous demands of dance. My curiosity got the better of me, and with self-inquiry and guidance from a few very beautiful teachers, I tuned into a more holistic, united practise of the mind, body, breath – Yoga.  With a sincere “You can do anything, if you breathe and put your mind to it” attitude, my classes are balanced with an intention to find challenge and relaxation, allowing moments for reflection. I’ve learnt that it’s important to not take yourself so seriously, be playful and smile.  My biggest goal is to share my knowledge and create an open dialogue for holistic and healthy living between oneself, the people who surround us, and the beautiful Earth.

  VANESSA SAFAJOU Yoga and Meditation Teacher   I came to yoga with a very stiff body (of which I wasn’t the hugest fan) and the all too common misconception that I wasn’t flexible or slim enough for yoga. It didn’t take very long for me to fall in love how this practice made me feel within and about myself, and I knew that I wanted to help others feel the same.  One of the things I love most about yoga is that it helps us to accept ourselves as we are. No matter when or where we start our yoga journey, it is one that will never end. We learn that there is no perfect way to perform an asana, to breathe, to move or to feel. Instead, this practice helps us to look within, to reflect and to find what serves us and what doesn’t.  I feel very privileged to be able to share what I’ve learned through my own practice and study, and the knowledge and experience passed on to me by many wonderful teachers and fellow students. Whether it’s your first class or you’ve been practicing for years, my hope is that you leave class with a calm body, a clear mind and a smile on your face.

  RENEE COLEMAN Yoga Teacher   Hi my name is Renee and I recently graduated from my 200hr YTT in June 2018 at Sukha Mukha yoga in Bronte. I first came to yoga hoping to find stillness for my active mind and healing from life’s ups and downs.   I come from a long background of martial arts and have previously worked as a martial arts instructor for many years, which keeps me sharp, active and strong, and yoga has complimented my martial arts to bring me the stillness and inner peace I hoped for. Of course my yoga journey is far from over.   Aside from yoga and martial arts I spend my time working full time as a physiotherapist. I have been a physiotherapist for 3 years now and have developed a fascination with the workings of the body and the mind. I am very happy to be a part of this wonderful space at Nin Yoga and I look forward to meeting all of you beautiful people.

I’m a disability support worker who aims to make a difference through delivering yoga to the people I care for.  My classes are spirited and diverse.

From expanding my consciousness, to showing me how to cultivate patience and compassion in all areas of my life.
