Master Yoga Teacher Nubia Teixeira

I am the founder of the Bhakti Nova School of Yoga and Dance and lead classes, workshops, and teacher-trainings internationally, independently, and in collaboration with my husband, kirtan artist Jai Uttal. I live in Fairfax, California, with Jai and our son, Ezra.

I perceive Yoga as a healing art, my connection to this ancient practice is reflected in my unique teachings.

I am the author of the book Yoga and The Art of Mudras and of the instructional CD, Pranayama: May Breath Be Our Prayer.

I have dedicated the past 30 years of my life to this “art-science-philosophy-practice” called Yoga and via my personal experience, insight and curiosity I gathered many gems that supports me to support my students to stay firmly rooted in their spiritual practices.

Serving humanity with a healthy physical body, with a clear mind and an altruistic heart is critically essential now. Let us via this beautiful vehicle of our bodies, bring more light, more love, more devotion, more kindness to the world.

“Nubia’s classes are a piece of art interweaving her vast knowledge and mastery of asana, mudras, mantras and pranayama into an hour long journey of heartfelt flow and song. She is a gifted teacher whose authenticity and joy light up the way as she guides her students with her gift of song, hands on adjustments and her playful and devotional approach to her teachings. I am proud to call her my teacher and mentor.”
