Meet Nadja Villegas

 

Welcome to my journey

Helping you live life to the fullest

 

Nadja is a San Francisco Bay Area, Silicon Valley Wellness and Holistic Coach and TCM and Acupuncture Masters student.

She began her journey as a yoga student and soon discovered her calling. After progressing to an advanced level, she trained to become a yoga instructor to help others.

Nadja found her way to Yin Yoga as that was the best way to transform students both physically and mentally.

Wellness

Sometimes yoga isn’t enough. Through Acupressure, Nadja helps clients unblock and restore balance and energy flow through the body’s meridians.

Similarly, she found Dynamic Cupping to be the best way to release fascia and increase range of motion so students can get the most out of Yin Yoga.

Wellness Coaching lets Nadja helps students create new patterns and become better versions of themselves.

Nadja is a talented and best yoga teacher I’ve had. She connects with the class and delivers a well balanced session with varied Yoga moves. Her expertise is at Yin yoga, mobility, and breathing. One would always be able to feel much more relaxed after her session.

Nadja is a sensitive, caring teacher who offers private yoga sessions as well as group classes. Since everybody is unique, her approach to yoga is also individualized, not a one size fits all.
