Yoga and Pilates Instructor, Studio Owner
Nalini has been a dedicated Yoga student since 2010 and teacher since 2015. Her practice began purely as a form of exercise to help her through uni, but has transformed (and continues to do so) into something much more.
Nalini believes Yoga is a fantastic tool for anyone to help disconnect from external stresses and pressures and instead connect inward through mindful movement of body and breath. Inspired by her wonderful teachers, Nalini completed her 200 hour training in Sydney with Akasha Yoga. Shortly after, she took the plunge, left her corporate job and moved to the Gold Coast to teach Yoga full time.
Nalini acquired Floating Lotus in 2017 and moved it to its current location in 2020. Now working alongside her husband, Jason, together they endeavour for the studio to be a positive, welcoming and vibrant space for the community. Nalini has learnt so much from the teachers and students she works with, such as a newfound love for Pilates! A big believer in the importance of continued learning, Nalini completed her 500 hour Yoga teacher training with Byron Yoga Centre in 2020 and mat Pilates certification with Studio Pilates in 2021.
As a teacher Nalini is passionate about creating interesting and unpredictable sequences that move fluidly whilst maintaining a strong alignment focus. Nalini caters for all ages, genders and levels of experience in her classes. Expect a bit of sweat, a little laughter and a whole lot of love.
