About Nina

Hi! My name is Nina Elise – welcome to my website!


A little about me:
I have over 20 years of experience in yoga & fitness, specializing in body awareness, anatomy, and inversions. Growing up, I did gymnastics & played several sports, which taught me how to connect with my body on a deeper level.

After reconstructive knee surgery in 2014, I began taking yoga classes to aid in my recovery. I quickly found yoga as a way to not only rebuild my strength, but also alleviate stress and anxiety. Shortly after, I became a certified yoga teacher and personal trainer, and have spent the last 6+ years taking trainings & courses from amazing teachers around the world to understand the body even more.

I have found that yoga & fitness can be very meditative when combined with awareness & understanding of the body. Combining my training in transcendental meditation, anatomy, and fitness, my teaching style is meditative, challenging, and unique, whether you are taking a vinyasa or yin class with me. This combination creates an amazing experience for mental & physical growth & progression in every students yoga practice – on & off the mat.

With a solid understanding of the anatomy of the body, I customize all of my classes and private sessions based on the needs of my students, as every body is so different.

I am currently traveling around the world and am available for group, corporate, and private sessions in person & online.

What People Are Saying

“Nina is an amazing yoga teacher and personal trainer!! She worked with me one-on-one to show me exercises that help strengthen my core, which has always been my weakest area -especially after having a baby. Within weeks, I noticed my core getting stronger! She is very easy going which makes excercising with her very enjoyable and fun. You can tell that she genuinely wants to help her clients be the best version of themselves!”
