HATHA * VINYASA FLOW * YIN YOGA * YOGA NIDRA * CHAKRA BALANCING YOGA * KRIYA YOGA * VEDIC CHANTING * MEDITATION * YOGA PHILOSOPHY

 

Octavia Nasr's yoga practice began fourteen years ago and has been evolving since. Her dedication is expressed through a daily sadhana that includes asana (poses), pranayama (breathing exercises) and meditation. She considers yoga to be a gift of peace and non-harming that has nurtured her when she was consumed by a high profile job, and through every thick and thin of life to date.

 

Octavia took her first yoga class by chance and never stopped practicing yoga since. Her hunger for learning took her to yoga studios, gyms, ashrams and retreat centers near and far all over the world. She attended workshops, tried various forms of yoga practices with diverse teachers in diverse languages.Vacations were now planned around yoga and work trips were opportunities to try new styles and meet like-minded people.

 

Her journey has taken her to India six times where she has traditionally stayed at the Parmarth Niketan Ashram in Rishikesh. There, she learned yoga philosophy and was initiated by Sadhvi Abha Saraswati “Mataji” on Vedic Chanting. Experiencing the humility of ashram living, immersed in prayer, meditation, yoga asanas and daily Ganga Aarti, are the soulful treasures that keep calling her back.

 

Octavia completed a 200-hour teacher training course at Peachtree Yoga Center in Atlanta and her 300-hour certification in Arambol, India at the Yogvit Yogshala. She believes that in teaching she can reflect all the love, dedication and selflessness of her own teachers. She likes to combine Mantra chanting, breathing techniques and meditation with the traditional yoga poses. She is a big fan of Surya Namaskara (Sun Salutation); she believes that everyone can and should practice the 12-step series on a daily basis for a balanced healthy body, sharp flexible mind and compassionate heart.

 

During 2015, Octavia travelled twice to India. During that time, she completed an intensive 100-Hour Kriya Yoga class at Parmarth Niketan Ashram in Rishikesh. She also taught traditional Hatha yoga classes at the ashram and she took part in the 16th annual International Yoga Festival. 

 

Now the journey continues and Octavia is dedicated to using her knowledge and experience to help people tap into their higher selves to deal with illness, trauma, PTSD, work pressure, anxiety, balancing career and personal life or anything else that might be ailing or troubling them. Octavia believes yoga is about serving others, which in turn helps her grow spiritually.
