About Nadine and Jay

Nadine O’Mara

Nadine is a senior yoga teacher in Sydney, Australia, who has brought her unique blend of yoga to people of all ages while in India, America, the UK and Australia. She is passionate about supporting women and their families and has done so through some of the most challenging moments in their lives. Her training and influences in yoga are far and wide and her teaching reflects that.

Nadine and her family: partner Jay and daughters Indigo and Aiya, have been part of the Steiner community in the UK and then in Australia since Indigo was 6 months old (she is now 12). The teachings of Rudolf Steiner have firmly helped shape their beliefs, while Steiner rhythms and celebrations have guided and nourished family life.

Nadine believes that by building calm and connected families, we will help create a more balanced world.
