Nicolina Sandstedt

Location: International, El Pescadero, Baja California Sur Level: E-RYT 500
Nicolina's inspiring presence and teaching style is organic and intuitive. Through centering, up-lifting and challenging yoga practices she guides her students to explore their own sense of flow. 

At age 18, Nicolina left her home in Sweden with a thirst for deeper understanding of herself through yoga and the ancient cultures of the world. She spent the following 6 years traveling, with 3 long stays in India. A lifelong romance with Yoga was born and in 2006 Nicolina completed her first Yoga Teacher Training with Yandara Yoga Institute. The experience was transformational and she shortly returned to study and work at Yandara. In 2009 she moved back to Sweden and completed her degree in Physical Therapy at the University of Gothenburg. The deep understanding of anatomy and physiology is an invaluable support in her profession as a yoga teacher and teacher trainer. During her time in Sweden, she continued to deepen her studies of yoga, she taught regularly at yoga studios and teacher trainings across the country, and is co-founder of “Yoga Treats” studio. 

When Nicolina started Shiva Rea’s evolutionary teacher training, she experienced a true transformation in her practice. Through Prana Vinyasa® she found herself liberated and empowered in the teachings of Yoga, Tantra and Ayurveda and the continuos flow of pulsations, rhythms and waves. 

After living a nomadic lifestyle, Nicolina has unpacked her bags at Yandara Yoga Institute, Baja California. This is where she spends most of her year, apart from a few months divided between Sweden and Bali. 

Nicolina is in awe of the magic that is everywhere. When she is not teaching yoga, you may find her surrounded by the elements of nature, admiring the cactus forest, exploring the arid desert hillsides, doing tarot spreads, making delicious raw treats for community potlucks, and sipping endless cups of tea with her beloved.

Nicolina feels immense gratitude to her teachers. Her main training and teacher certifications are with Shiva Rea (Prana Vinyasa®), Angela Farmer & Victor Van Kooten (Underground Yoga), Sarah Powers (Insight Yoga), Biff Mithoefer (Yin), Kevin Durkin (Iyengar Yoga), Corrin Adams (Vinyasa), and Sivananda (Classical Hatha Yoga).
