Nadia Gilani is a writer and yoga teacher. She first discovered yoga after her mum took her to a class in the 1990s – over twenty years ago. She has been practising ever since. Nadia has extensive experience of working with people with different bodies and from all walks of life, from complete beginners to those who are more experienced, teenagers to the over-seventies, refugees and asylum seekers to domestic violence victims, people living with mental illness and those in recovery from substance misuse. Nadia is deeply committed to making yoga inclusive. Her teaching approach is contemporary, non-dogmatic and explorative, while maintaining a deep respect for the ancient Indian practice. Nadia’s working background is in news journalism and communications, which she did for a decade before teaching yoga and meditation. The Yoga Manifesto is her first book.
