Panelist - International

Yoga Day 2021

Featured as a member of the Panel to discuss the Real Meaning of Yoga on the largest virtual yoga gathering in 2021. Virtually celebrating International Yoga Day on 19th June, 108 Masters, from 50 countries and all 6 continents gathering on a common platform to disseminate life transforming ancient yoga wisdom.


Nyamwathi is amazingly kindhearted and caring in every way which you will see wonderfully reflected in her yoga classes. I was only able to take classes for about three months but it was just the inspiration I needed to pursue my own training to become a yoga teacher. She made me feel safe and courageous to go deeper in my practice and to trust in my body.
Starting with a session to discuss your own wants and needs, the classes are adjusted to suit you and help you reach your own personal goals. Because of the private one-on-one sessions you really get the extra attention to proper and safe alignment that I don’t feel you get in a bigger class setting.
I learned so much about the benefits of different poses and, which was absolutely freeing for me, realized that every body is unique and moves in different ways. This means that stretches don’t look the same for everyone and that, in fact, some people are not able to move in certain ways. This really gave me more confidence in my own strengths and abilities as opposed to what yoga is “supposed” to look like. I can’t thank you enough, Nyam, you’re an absolute inspiration.

I always feel like I get more than what I paid for! Yoga with Nyamwathi has been transformational to my practice and to my own actualizing the benefits of yoga to my daily life (finally!). Nyamwathi is a wonderful teacher and I love how she incorporates subtle and yet powerful meditative practices to her classes that simply elevate the classes to a whole other level. I hadn't really had one on one yoga classes before Nyamwathi and I couldn't recommend her classes more! I truly feel like I am receiving more than I bargained for! Her playlists are also a lovely bonus and I am constantly looking forward to my classes with her!

Nyamwathi is an amazing yoga teacher. Her lessons are always thoughtfully put together and designed to make you feel better (every time!), whether you’re tired or anxious or restless or in need of a more physical workout. And her in-depth knowledge of different types of yoga and how the body and mind work together means she can adapt her lessons to give you just what you need. I’ve seen and felt my own improvement with every session. Thank you, Nyamwathi!

I’ve had somewhat of a love-hate relationship with yoga since I first began practicing 4 years ago. I had previously been a solo practitioner, learning through YouTube videos and making some quality progress in the process.
However and inevitably, I kept arriving at my version of the "yogis block”. My progress was always stifled by the underlying imbalances in my body that I was unable to correctly diagnose and self-prescribe treatment for. After toiling away for so long and nursing the same injuries through my day to day life, this also restricted my ability to pursue long term exercise programs due to a variety of limiting factors.
Nyam has been a revelation to my practice and has helped me surpass these plateaus and learn so much about how not only the body works, but also the mind. I finally feel free of the tension that has underlied so much of my experience of life thus far and that’s mostly thanks to her.

I found Nyamwathi by chance when my previous yoga instructor left Kenya. It was absolutely wonderful crossing paths with her as she is an excellent instructor and teacher. She works to customise her sessions for each of her clients and helps strengthening and enlivening the body to become healthier.
I have recommended Nyamwathi to many of my clients and have only heard amazing feedback.  Not only does she practice and teach Hatha yoga which is truly a pure form, she is also experienced in ashtanga, vinyasa and yin yoga practices. 
If you're looking for a great yoga instructor, look no further...she's right here!!

With my long days at work, this is a welcomed practice that everyone should take time to do for their own well-being. You can only love others if you love yourself.

Rehema Chege

Nyamwathi really understands the mechanics of the body and uses this understanding to design creative sequences that fit the needs of her students. Within two weeks of working with her I felt noticeable relief in my lower back and have continued to make progress since then!
She also imparts interesting and insightful bits of information and philosophy both related and unrelated to yoga.
Above all else, yoga with Nyams is fun and I look forward to every session!

Mikhail Teja

The lessons are what I have been looking for, for a long time without even realizing it. I look forward to every class, and encourage all my friends to join – even the men! 

Valentine Ngeny

Nyamwathi is gifted with more than just teaching yoga.  She guided me how to work with my body & the best suitable yoga poses & sequence to work for me. I learnt so much about myself while training with her.  

Every session had a starting & ending meditation & stretching to help ease my body from strenuous workouts from the gym.  Loved the oracle card readings after the sessions.  I ended up learning two sequences.

One was the moon salutation which my body needed due to hormonal changes. Second was a vinyasa based warrior sequence. Its nice cause both the sequences are totally different from each other.  

I look forward to continuing my yoga journey, thank you so very much. 🙏💛

Kamal Kaur

Nyamwathi teaches with such care and creativity. Classes are tailored to my overall objectives, but also my needs on the day. We continue to practice virtually when I'm away, even in a different continent with forever changing schedules. I still feel very looked after in these virtual classes.
I look forward to my yoga journey continuing with her!
