Inspirational Speaker, Facilitator, Yoga & Meditation Teacher
Nina Hansen has walked the spiritual path for over 18 years. Nina's profound wisdom and serenity captivates participants at the numerous workshops, retreats and courses that she leads. Nina's spiritual dedication and loving nature can be felt during the various teachings she offers that are flavoured by her gentle and soft teaching style. Compassion and tolerance are intrinsic components in her ability to convey the message of yoga and spirituality in a modern and contemporary approach.
Originally Norwegian, after studying and living in England and travelling extensively, Nina now calls Australia home and prefers the pristine beaches and warmer sub-tropical climate of the Sunshine Coast.
Nina has followed the Tantric path since 1999 and this focus is reflected in her teachings on Tantric sexuality, the awakening of the divine feminine and her skillful practice and transmission of the transforming practice of Tantric yoga. Nina’s path as a Tantric teacher is one of authenticity and integrity as she communicates this diverse and fulfilling path.
Nina embodies a sincere and mature attitude to genuine inner growth. This is reflected in her understanding that bringing spiritual practice into every moment of life by cultivating awareness is an essential quality to develop on the spiritual path. This ability to remain present is fundamental to expanding consciousness and is a constant reminder to embrace the journey of life and cherish each and every day.
As a truly gifted graphic designer, Nina runs her own thriving business – Nina Hansen Design where she uses her natural appreciation of aesthetics in a visual context. Nina has previously worked in some of the biggest and most successful design agencies around the world but now prefers the freedom and flexibility of her own business. Nina completed her studies in Visual Communications and the History of Art and Design in England. Nina is also an enthusiastic dancer and revels in the glitz, energy and flow of all things Latin dance.
It is perhaps fitting that her travels to India marked the beginning of Nina’s spiritual path. Nina was fascinated with the richness of Indian philosophy, specifically Tantra and quickly became absorbed by metaphysical and esoteric teachings. Her strong background in art, creativity and design gave Nina a deep appreciation of spiritual art, architecture and esoteric symbolism, all of which have an important role in the spiritual tradition of India.
Nina followed the calling of her soul to embark on the spiritual journey and search for happiness and true inner peace. After this beginning Nina spent extended periods in both India and Thailand practicing and studying this path of wisdom.
Nina has realised that the relentless pursuit of happiness was at the heart of human existence and yet this happiness is always within. The contentment we are all searching for is a deep inner peace and Nina lives each day through the understanding that happiness is a choice and we are the ones responsible for making that choice in each and every moment.
