Her corporate clients have included Orange, Mac Cosmetics, Estee Lauder, Aveda, La Mer and ASOS.
She relishes teaching a range of populations, from stressed out CEOs, to magazine editors on tight deadlines, to the not so bendy, the sceptics who don't think yoga is for them, the curious beginner, the open-minded improver, to yoga teacher trainees right through to clients with a range of addiction issues. Her aim is to demystify yoga yet still show you the magic of this powerful ancient technology.
Prior to this, Nahid has had a diverse creative background. She set up her first business in her 20s selling fashion accessories to Browns, Barneys in NY and Japan as well as The Conran Shop. In her 30s, she went back to college to study for a MA in Computer Science, learning to program in code. She was one of the founding team of three women who set up Scarlet magazine. Combining her creative background with her business acumen and entrepreneurial spirit, and just as she was about to turn 40, she opened up the first Good Vibes studio in October 2006, leading Londoners into a new era of fitness as a lifestyle.
