Meet Nsa

(Lead Teacher Trainer)

Vinyasa – Art of Teaching – Yin/Restorative – Ayurveda – Yoga Philosophy – Business of Yoga

Growing up in Long Beach, California Nsa played numerous sports and especially enjoyed dance classes for the alignment of ballet. But it was not until after college that Nsa fell in love with yoga while seeking relief from the stress and anxiety of the entertainment industry. She has been practicing yoga for 9 years and now holds an E-RYT200 Yoga Teacher Certificate. She has a degree in Social Welfare from UC Berkeley, and has experience working with addiction, mental health and “at risk populations” reclaiming their wellness. Nsa has been leading Proud Journey Yoga classes and retreats in Lagos for the last 1 year and teaching since early 2015. She offers her clients hatha, vinyasa and yin/restorative styles of yoga, while working one-on-one in yoga therapeutics and uplifting yoga to alleviate depression/anxiety/addiction. During the 200hr training she will also be teaching on topics of the art of teaching and the business of yoga – reflecting her 8 years of work as a marketing consultant.
