Growing up Nadine loved playing musical instruments including classical piano, and dancing. She gained a Bachelor of Music from Melba Conservatorium of Music then completed a Bachelor of Education. She worked as a Primary School teacher for over twelve years before Yoga transformed Nadine’s life!
Yoga provided the pathway and tools to overcome many challenges and to create a life of balance, good health, happiness and abundance. Nadine travelled to Byron Bay and Bali to complete Level 1 and 2 training with Byron Yoga Centre. She also studied Vinyasa at the Australian Academy of Yoga and Kids Yoga with Rainbow Kids.
Returning to her home town after years of travel and exploration Nadine started Sohum Community Yoga in Tooradin, South East Victoria. Nadine is a dynamic and warm yoga teacher who brings energy, humour and philosophy to her classes. Students leave Nadine's classes feeling energised and refreshed, creating more space throughout the body and mind for a happy and healthy life.
Getting to know the Zenko Team
Do you have a mantra/quote that you often turn to?
The mantra I use often is Sohum. So hum briefly means ‘I am’. I chose this mantra as the name of my business. It allows me to connect to everything that surrounds me. My environment, people, elements, etc. No separation.
How do you fill up your love tank?
I used to fill my love tank with alcohol. I left that habit behind when I found yoga. I now fill my love tank in many ways. I practice daily, I spend time with my family, in nature, with friends and also push myself to experience new and exciting things.
What advice would you give someone wondering whether to try yoga for the first time?
If someone was inquiring about trying yoga for the first time I would ask them what made them think about trying it? Often it is because a friend recommended they try. I would hone in on what may make them hesitant to try it, considering they have asked; and support them to feel safe. I would ask them what they would like to achieve from going to yoga. I would then offer them the numerous benefits in relation to their needs.
