Safe, therapeutical and great focus on alignment!

Had I started yoga with any other teacher, I would never have continued. Nefeli is an extremely safe teacher and very aware of each individual students requirements. Her focus is on alignment and her classes are fun yet thorough and I always leave class on a high!

Aligning the body, to serve the heart!

Thank you Annika, I am more than happy you are enjoying the teacher training so much and you are absorbing exactly what you need. The body is the vehicle of the heart, so we align the body and as we create freedom for the joints, we create freedom for the heart!! Since the body and Spirit are basically One, we cannot serve one without the other, they go hand in hand. If the body is in pain the Spirit is idull, when the body is well the Spirit can thrive! The are yoked together.

Nefeli has given me an amazing introduction to yoga and taught me a whole new way of thinking and approaching life. Her practises have a great balance between spirituality and "exercise"
She is a beautiful person and teacher.

Dedicated to her students

I have been so lucky to have been in a position to practise with Nefeli. Be it private or group her dedication to the well being of her students are extremely important. Because of this, as a lower back and neck pain sufferer, I have been able to continue my work on the mat. Your teaching and positive influence on the mat has also helped me to incorporate all this good energy into my life. I hope that I will be able to study under you for the teacher training program later this year. I cannot imagine doing it with another teacher. Looking forward to our next lesson xxx

Thank you Karin for your kind words. It is always a joy to practice with dedicated yoginis like you. I look forward to doing the Teacher training with you so that you can add on to your pre- existing knowledge and dive deeper into the practice as you cultivate the "teachers eye",ntewching people what they need Vs what you know or have planned for the day :) Adaptability is key!
