“Don’t let people pull you into their storm, pull them into your peace” ~Pema Chödrön ~
A quote Nina strives to live by…
As a 30-year high level Executive, (wife, full-time working mother of her now adult kids) in a NY/Philly based Broadcast Sales & Marketing Firm, Nina leads a busy, fast-paced life. While exercise and dance were always a consistent part of her life, she only practiced yoga as it was integrated into her other forms of exercise. She “came back” to the mat more mindfully about 5+ years ago through the dogged encouragement of her life-long best friend, who knew it would help add calm and balance back into her life. After only a short time practicing at The PP, Nina was able to disconnect from the busyness of her life and become fully present on the mat. She began to see the immediate benefits and positive impact that yoga was having on her life. Quickly hooked, thoroughly committed – her love for yoga grew as did her desire to learn and deepen her practice. So together with her best friend, they completed the 200hr YTT at The PP and her yoga journey continues from there.
The more she learns how yoga integrates the mind, body and soul – the more she inspires to share of herself as a teacher. While Nina still straddles the corporate and “Yoga” world, she knows that her love for learning, practicing and teaching will eventually land both her feet firmly planted in the yoga world.
