“Quite simply one of the most wonderful yoga teachers I’ve had in the past 28 years of being a yoga student. Now that she can teach remotely from her headquarters in Taos, New Mexico, people all over the world can appreciate this gentle yet rigorous, loose, yet structured, positive form of yoga goodness. As a former Iyengar student with a healthy respect for all that this method has done, Nadine draws upon alignment from her Iyengar training and makes things kinder, gentler, and yet, still a stretchy and sometimes sweaty challenge! Highly recommended!” Peter McDowell

“Nadine has been particularly helpful in offering opportunities to work toward more advanced poses and inversions. Her hands on and individual guidance is particularly helpful to me in that the specific adjustments in form are memorable in a way that general verbal instruction can lack. I may think I’ve got it right with the general instruction but her individual adjustment often leads to aha! moments for me.” Luma yoga student, Santa Cruz

“Nadine Lollino – perfect mix of passion and compassion” Luma yoga student, Santa Cruz

“Nadine’s approach to yoga instruction is as balanced as the balance sought by her students. She is neither cheerleader, nor sage, nor drill sergeant, nor pedant. She respectfully encourages her students by being respectful of the practice in a lighthearted, accessible way. She fluidly introduces you to your self-awareness and abilities. She understands alignment and movement and the calming effect of focusing on it. She is wittily humorous. In short, Nadine is positive energy.” Chicago student John Castaneda

BIO

I began studying yoga in 1996 as part of a dance therapy program in college. My formal yoga practice began in 2000 with Miguel Latronica in Chicago studying Astanga Yoga. After a year of practicing with Miguel, I began teaching for him and assisting with his teacher trainings. I had taught Pilates for many years and eventually moved on to teaching yoga full time while developing my career in massage therapy. After many years of studying Astanga Yoga, I branched out into other styles, eventually finding my way to Iyengar Yoga. My classes are influenced by the flow found in Astanga and the alignment detail of Iyengar. My classes are lighthearted with an educational focus to promote posture awareness, injury prevention and tools for healing from injury. I bring a strong influence from dance into my teaching style. I enjoy leading workshops for teachers either through a teacher training or as continuing education in hands-on assisting, props, ethics in yoga and working with injuries.

Workshops/Special Classes:

Head and Shoulders, Knees and Toes
This class explores how the alignment of Tadasana (Mountain Pose) aids in healthier/happier neck, shoulders, low back and hips. The aim is to educate and stabilize our posture through an overview of the anatomy and function of these common pain areas, the use of props, muscle engagement and modifications.   This class is for teachers interested in deepening their understanding of these common stress areas and how to shape sequencing and cueing appropriately. Students interested in learning how to work in class and at home with weakness or pain primarily in neck, shoulders, low back and hips are also welcome. Be prepared for partner work.

Nidra is referred to as ‘yogic sleep’ or ‘psychic sleep’ where, guided verbally in breath-work and visualization, you consciously relax.  This is a one hour guided relaxation with discussion.

Deepening Your Practice Beginning with a seated meditation, and then followed by pranayama and challenging postures, this afternoon class is a time to ask questions, gain feedback and receive assistance. Although this class is an opportunity to practice more advanced postures, it is also about discovering pathways with modifications and variations that can teach us more about the essence of the pose, its function and alignment. Come with ideas and postures that you would like to understand more deeply.  Stay tuned for new workshops.
