Padma Nair is a native Keralan who, unusually for an Indian woman, has developed a strong reputation internationally. Padma is highly educated in Yoga, Sanskrit, Psychology, and holds a Masters in Indian Philosophy. Padma first trained in Hatha Yoga in 1980, qualified as a teacher with Sivananda’s Yoga Acharya in 1997, Yoga Siromani in 2001. She qualified to teach Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga from Mysore in 2013. (Since 1980 Padma has been studying yoga with many teachers all around the world).

Warm and humorous she has been teaching Yoga and Chavutti Thirummal (a deep form of Ayurvedic Massage complementary to Yoga) for over 28 years to her students all around the world.

Welcoming all levels from beginners to the more experienced, Padma’s yoga is traditional and classical - fusion of three different schools – gentle Sivananda, precise Iyengar and energetic Ashtanga. With this wide repertoire of approaches, Padma’s teaching can take into consideration that each individual is different. Every class has a different energy as she tailors the guidance to suit her student’s needs. Padma is a gently challenging teacher, over 4 or 5 days she watches what you are capable of and senses when, in a safe manner, you can do more than you believed possible. At these points she gives you individual guidance and support. In inelegant moments, there is often a peal of laughter, you try again and your range expands!

Padma and her Yogashala have been featured in the Huffington Post & in The Guardian in 2014, in The Times in 2013. For more info see
