My name is Nubia Teixeira and I am originally from Brazil, where I started teaching yoga at the age of 18. Currently I live in California - USA and I am the founder of the Bhakti Nova School of Yoga and Dance and lead classes, workshops, and teacher-trainings internationally, independently, and in collaboration with my husband, kirtan artist Jai Uttal. I live in Fairfax, California, with Jai and our son, Ezra.
I perceive Yoga as an art, my connection to this ancient practice is reflected in my unique teachings. I have dedicated the past 30 years of my life to this “art-science-philosophy-practice” called Yoga and via my personal experience, insight and curiosity I gathered many gems that supports me to support my students to stay firmly rooted in their spiritual practices.
I am the author of the book Yoga and The Art of Mudras and of the instructional CD, Pranayama: May Breath Be Our Prayer available on I-Tunes https://itunes.apple.com/us/album/pranayama/1183936704
Serving humanity with a healthy physical body, with a clear mind and an altruistic heart is critically essential now. Let us via this beautiful vehicle of our bodies, bring more light, more love, more devotion, more kindness to the world.
I have faith in the yoga techniques I practice, I rely on the Yogic scriptures to keep me on track, I reflect on the philosophical teachings to keep me inspired and nurtured. I trust that the light of the ancient yogis & yoginis and the benevolence of my spiritual guides will shine upon my heart, purifying me, so I can be an instrument for the light of Yoga itself to continue shining upon the ones near and around me.
