January Team Player: Nina Kuziel


Favorite part of yoga?

My favorite part of yoga is that all you need is a mat and you can do it anywhere. I started practicing yoga to quiet my mind and stay present.


Where did you grow up?

I grew up in northern Virginia, then we moved to Cincinnati for 4 years, then we moved to the Baltimore area for middle and high school. I’ve been in the northern VA/DC area for the past ten years for undergrad and grad school, but my parents still live outside of Baltimore.

I have three siblings and five nieces and nephews so I try to visit them as much as I can.


What are your top three hobbies?

Besides yoga, I love to swim, run, and travel whenever I can.


Favorite vacation?

My favorite vacation was a surf/yoga retreat I went on by myself to the north shore of Oahu when I was in grad school (March 2009). It was there I discovered my interest in yoga which soon turned into my passion.


Those who know me well know that…

I can’t go a day without ice cream….Travel inspires me…. My top 3 favorite movies are Holiday Inn with Fred Astaire and Bing Crosby, Les Miserables, and Elf… I never miss CBS Sunday Morning… Savasana is the reason why I do yoga and my favorite yoga pose.
