V5 Africa Keynote Speaker / Founder at Grounded Mindfulness
Nadia Padayachi started yoga in high school as an alternative to netball or hockey. Becoming a yoga teacher happened entirely by chance in 2016, following a sixteen year career in various corporate institutions. My teaching style and practice has been shaped by a few life events, namely growing up in the Cape Flats in the 90s, a turbulent family life, maintaining a lengthy corporate career, a hip operation and finding myself in unsafe spaces. Ultimately, finding solace in my mind and body became a bigger priority as time went on. In learning about myself through unraveling and reflecting, I found there was an aperture to hold a shared space for people and their lived experience - and where words did not suffice, there was ample room for movement, for re-rooting and connecting with the body as a means of healing.
