Yoga-in was officially launched by Nazama Tague in 2014. At 19, she first tried yoga at university, but after a few sessions felt too stiff and inadequate to practice.
Around her mid-twenties, feeling the impact of past traumas and having both mental and physical health difficulties, she discovered a new compassionate teacher who made yoga accessible. That was it, she was hooked.
However, by her late 20’s Nazama hit burn-out mainly due to her job. Feeling severely depressed, she quit her job with an aim to recover over a couple months, but in fact it took her a year. In this time, she was truly able to bring more self-care, yoga and meditation into her life, and also volunteered at a yoga centre.
Nazama, is committed to demystifying yoga, meditation, mindfulness and ayurveda, and teaching in an accessible way to as many people as possible.
Nazama has completed training in:
- Yoga Teacher Training (2 year 200-hour yoga alliance course)
- Meditation Teacher Training – included Mindfulness (2.5 years)
- Children and Teen Yoga
- Therapeutic Yoga for Healthy Back Care and Wellbeing
- Mental Health First Aider
- Ayurvedic Health Coach (Due to complete in 2022)
- Advanced Meditation (Due to complete in 2022)
“When I first started yoga I could barely reach my knees, let alone touch my toes! But then I tried a more gentle style, and I fell in love with yoga and later meditation.
It took time, but now I have much more energy & better physical and mental health. PLUS, I can almost touch my toes!”
Yoga-in first began as Yoga Classes in Sodbury. After some encouragement from her yoga trainer, Nazama started a small class as a hobby.
Overwhelmed by support from friends and the public, within a year she soon started more classes. She later started working with charities, schools and companies.
Meditation is a natural transition from yoga, and so Nazama started learning this in depth. Once again, she found a positive response from others who also wanted to learn mindfulness and meditation too – especially work places.
From time to time, Nazama also works with and brings in other talented yoga and meditation teachers, and other professionals who also share the same values.
Why does the Yoga-in Approach Work?
It’s an easy-to-follow, compassionate, light-hearted fusion of yoga, meditation, mindfulness and ayurveda, taught in bite sizes in a way that everybody and every body can have a go at.
Yoga is therapeutic and can move beyond just poses and twisting yourself into a pretzel.
Through flowing unforced movements, directed breathing, visualisation, deep relaxations, with a fusion of light mindfulness and meditation; yoga works to re-balance all the many layers of our being.
The result. You’ll feel fantastic, improving fitness, strength & flexibility, rediscovering yourself, and creating feelings of a happier, intuitive, creative, calmer you,
The same goes for mindfulness and meditation. Not only creating a sense of calm, boosting your mental wellbeing and even your immunity, but also being able respond rather than react to any stresses in life.
Yoga and mindfulness is your inner experience and can be part of your journey through life.
