Nahid has practised yoga since 2000. She subsequently trained with some of the world’s most respected yoga teachers (including Simon Low and Gary Carter), founded the Good Vibes yoga and fitness studio in Central London and, for over 10 years, has taught a personal client list ranging from professional athletes, A-list actresses and City CEOs to people with Parkinsons or recovering from cancer. She is also a Somatics Movement coach, a re-learning neuro-muscular method that helps clients move more fluidly.
In that time Nahid has developed her own revolutionary form of yoga practice, which she calls The Human Method™. The emphasis is on blending slow, gentle yoga flow, somatic movements, restorative poses and breathing techniques to quieten the mind and calm stressed nervous systems. The classes are suitable for complete yoga beginners as well as the more experienced (the weekly schedule and booking details are on the website).
‘I pay special attention to the senses, focusing on physical and mental wellbeing while encouraging the body to move naturally and with more ease,’ she says. ‘I’ve found that my teaching works well on screen; I can see my clients easily and we’ve been doing some great work. The classes for NHS staff and the community have been very inspiring; we’ve built a friendly, mutually supportive group and I look forward to “seeing” them every week.’
