Director of the Mudita Institute
Ayurvedic Consultant & Cook, Health Writer
Nadia is an Ayurvedic Lifestyle Consultant, Cook and Health Writer. After suffering from a restrictive eating disorder and activity disorder in her teens, Nadia had ongoing digestive problems and body image issues throughout her twenties..... until Ayurveda and Yoga changed her life.
She began Yoga in 1998 and came across Ayurveda in 2002 while studying Naturopathy. She promptly transferred to the Australasian Institute of Ayurvedic Studies (A.I.A.S) to study Ayurveda with Dr Ajit instead. She has been living, breathing, researching and writing about its daily principles ever since, particularly from a food/diet perspective - both for Mudita, as a nutrition columnist for Nova Magazine and as a guest writer for national and international websites including Everyday Ayurveda and journalist, Sarah Wilson's blog.
Nadia originally studied science, then commerce at University and worked in the field of communications for 12 years as a speech writer, marketer and event manager for law firms and universities. But she has found her groove as a health writer. She is our manager, administrator, marketer, designer, web designer, event organiser and produces many of our articles, blogs and has co-authored or written our publications. She is also a speaker at our Retreats and runs our cooking demonstrations at Retreats and Courses. She is passionate about helping other people, particularly women, liberate themselves from stress and confusion around food and their bodies!
She has also been a formal Zen student of Doko’s since 2008 and is the web designer for Compassionate Mind Australia. She is married to Kester and lives in Northern NSW with Michael, Justine and their three children. She has a couple of furry babies who you may meet at the clinic some time, Gus and Nooshka, the Australian Shepherds.
Nadia offers one-on-one or small group cooking classes at the Mudita Health Clinic.
