My name is Nina Zettl, and I live in the beautiful Comox Valley with my husband and our three wonderful children. I am a Yoga Teacher, Birth and Postpartum Doula, Women’s Health Advocate, Mind-Body Therapist, and Reiki Master. I hold a Bachelor of Arts Honours in Psychology from the University of Saskatchewan and have achieved Master-level certification in both Angel Reiki and Holy Fire Reiki. Additionally, I have completed advanced training in Craniosacral Therapy, Yoga, Self-Regulation Therapy, and Childbirth Education.

 

With over twenty-five years of experience in yoga, my journey began in early childhood when my mother introduced me to asana, pranayama, and meditation. My formal teaching career started in 2012, and since then, I have accumulated over 800 hours of advanced training and mentorship in various styles, including Prana Vinyasa ®, Prenatal/Postnatal Yoga, Lila Vinyasa Flow, Vinyasa Krama, SriVidya (Tantric Arts), Trauma-Conscious Yoga, Hatha, and Yin Yoga. I have taught over 3500 hours of yoga and wellness classes across Western Canada in studios, retreats, conferences, and festivals.

 

My deepening studies in the subtle aspects of yoga and my passion for hands-on healing led me to explore the power of prana, and inspired me to study Usui, Holy Fire II, and New Earth Angel Reiki and achieve Master-level certifications. Over time, I recognized the profound impact of integrating the nervous system into healing practices, both for my clients and myself. This realization guided me to pursue advanced training in Self-Regulation Therapy with the Centre Foundation for Trauma Research and Education and Trauma-Conscious Yoga with Judy Weaver. Currently, I am enrolled in the Barral Institute, pursuing certifications in Visceral Manipulation and Neural Manipulation.

From 2012 to 2022, as a Doula, Childbirth Educator, and Prenatal Yoga Teacher, I supported over 150 families through pregnancy, labor, and delivery, providing comprehensive care and guidance during these critical times. For over a decade, I taught hundreds of prenatal yoga classes and childbirth education courses to expecting families, which was incredibly fulfilling and joyous. In recent years, I have stepped back from full-time doula work to focus on my studies in Manual and Somatic Therapies and pursue a career in counselling. However, I remain passionately dedicated to supporting expecting and postpartum women and their children in the clinic.

 

My wellness offerings combine Reiki, Craniosacral Therapy, Self-Regulation Therapy, Visceral Manipulation, and mindfulness techniques to help clients deepen their mind-body-spirit connection. I aim to empower individuals to connect with their innate gifts and inner wisdom, facilitating their journey through trauma toward a full and harmonious life.
