Nadia’s passion for health started at an early age while she was growing on the beautiful island of Bali. As a child, this took the shape of devising creative inventions to get her parents to stop smoking. With time it developed into a growing interest for exercise and nutrition, as well as kickstarting her yoga journey. Eventually she went on to study a masters in Health Psychology at University College London, and soon after she joined the Aug2020 YTT to deepen her understanding of yoga as a keystone practice for holistic health and wellbeing.
Choosing the Peaceful Warriors training on the island where she grew up, was a shaping experience. The thorough, well-rounded lectures on the philosophy, anatomy, and practical aspects of teaching yoga provided a strong foundation that gave her exactly what she needed for her next project. Her immersive experience in the tight-knit Peaceful Warriors community also helped her realise that keeping up a daily yoga practice, no matter how many benefits it brings, can be a huge challenge for many people.
She set out to use her behavioral psychology background to create a course that would tackle this issue and dive deep into the psychology of how to stick to health practices, like doing yoga, for the long run. Using a practical, science-backed method, the course guides people in understanding and applying tools to maintain their yoga practice for good.
