Nzinga emphasizes comfort in the postures and practice of yoga, as well as patience with the self as the body adapts to the ways the mind inspires it to stretch. Nzinga further encourages family involvement as parents are welcomed and encouraged to bring their children to attend the yoga sessions.
“Yoga is a science, a psychology, if you will. It includes the way you live your life, the way you nourish your body, your movements, proper breathing, meditation and studying for deeper insight. My practice, of Egyptian Yoga, has helped me grow my confidence on and off the mat. Egyptian Yoga inspired me to breathe through each moment, stretch myself and interact with the spiritual essence of my being. In completing my Egyptian Yoga (Thef Neteru Sema Paut) Certification with Aunkh Aukhu, I am deeply grateful for the experience and exposure. I seek to help others nurture their body, mind and soul with this system of yoga. It is my greatest desire that you step off the mat feeling refreshed, nourished and balanced.”
