A Bit About Nella
Nella is a NC native and currently lives here in Wilmington. She has a 9-yr old son, loves all outdoor activities, especially on the water, and loves to travel all over the world.
The beginning of her yoga journey was not one of success. She tried classes at many studios over the years, and although she loved the environment, she didn't feel like she belonged or that she could do it. In summer 2017, upon recommendation of a friend she tried a studio that had recently opened. After being in class led by encouraging teachers, she found a daily practice of yoga. With a supportive community, she was able to discover and embody transformation in her life physically, mentally, and spiritually.
Yoga gives her space for a deeper connection to self and allows for deeper and more meaningful connections with others. Equally as important, yoga shows her daily anything is possible. Being a part of her students' journey in profound self-discovery is her passion and observing their progress brings her joy.
She is a 500HR RYT (2021) and has her BA in History from NC State University. She is also a NC State Certified Paralegal working with local and international law firms over the past 24 years, and she recently became a Captain with the United States Merchant Marines.
As a lifelong learner and student of yoga, Nella's next goal is to become SUP certified by the beginning of Summer 2022, so look for her on the water downtown!
