I base my courses on the science of movement and biodynamics, spiritual wisdom of my lineage, and my own embodied experience and study. As a student of life I am always learning, studying and researching. I believe that as a teacher it is my job to stay informed with new information as it arises and be a few steps ahead of my students so that I continue to provide you useful and applicable teachings.
2020 Workshops TBA
The different courses I offer are for beginners through advanced practitioners. There is always something to learn, a new insight or a new angle on the familiar. Like the old saying, “you can never touch the same river twice.” As you and I continue to evolve and grow each course will be different yet will contain the essence and principles of my Movement Approach.

This year step boldly into your teaching path with advanced techniques and empowered approach to embodiment. Nianna will shed light on principle teachings of Krishnamacharya, the Grandfather of modern Vinyasa yoga as we know it in the west.
In this 4 hour workshop you will be challenged with not only advanced asana but with cultivating a powerful, refined breath through deepening your understanding of pranayama and bandha and how all three create the foundation of practice.
9-11 AUGUST, 2019 Women’s Weekend @Glow Studio Haarlem
Through our body we sense the outer world and the outer world leaves an impression upon us. In life each of us will experience pain and loss, joy and peace as well as the mundane and ordinary. We integrate each experience into the whole of who we are. How we transition through life’s circumstance will determine how we perceive ourselves and interact with the world.
It is through the nervous system that we regulate our response to pleasure and pain and integrate traumatic experience, loss and grief as well as overwhelming joys and love’s simplicity. Our soma holds great wisdom and speaks to us clearly through image, emotion and sensation. It is our work to learn to listen, slow down, and feel our way through it all. This is how we heal.
