Special Guest *MAHA* Teacher

Nubia Teixeira

Yogini, teacher, dancer, healer & author,  I was born in Brazil and have been practicing and teaching traditional yoga and classical Indian Odissi danceNubia Teixeira for almost 30 years. 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 a healing art, my connection to this ancient practice is reflected in my unique teachings.

I am the author of the book Yoga and The Art of Mudras and of the instructional CD, Pranayama: May Breath Be Our Prayer.

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.

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 define Yoga as Grace and I see Yoga as an instrument to awaken spiritual evolution in one’s path, divine love in one’s heart and the unison of our heart’s intentions and actions. I welcome you to experience the sacredness of your incarnation via embodied practice and to find in the bountifulness of your physical body, the  gateways to the realm of the extraordinary." - Nubia Teixeira

With Gratitude to my Teachers:

I feel fortunate to have received the gift of yoga from so many unique and traditional teachers. I feel the honor and the responsibility of carrying this gift within me. With this responsibility comes deep commitment and an inspiring excitement to share those teachings with you.

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.
