Nianna is a dynamic and inspiring teacher with compassion for her students and a sincere regard for their healing path. She infuses music into her teaching both recorded and live to create a rich atmosphere which lulls her students into ecstatic states of passion and bliss. As a dancer music played an important role, now she brings the music into the studio. For over a decade Nianna has studied yoga, dance, and movement arts in India, U.S. and Europe. Yoga found her at the ripe age of 18. While attending Cornish College in Seattle she was a modern dancer who hungered for a life of integration which yoga satisfied. Nianna now teaches from years of personal practice and embodiment, intelligent intuitive sequencing and applied spiritual wisdom. She leads transformational and insightful public classes, private sessions, speaking engagements, and workshops in Los Angeles and New York. She is co-director of Away Inward, a company that specializes in uniquely personal, playful, and healing cultural submersion, spiritual pilgrimage, and eco-adventure retreats. She is a native Los Angelino, born at home in Santa Monica, CA. Her home studio is Exhale in Venice, CA.
