Nazo has been rock climbing for over 15 years. She has lived and climbed all over the world.
Her enthusiasm for rock climbing has taken her to some of the wildest and most remote as well as magically beautiful places in the world.
She enjoys all types of climbing from single pitch to multi-pitch, from traditional climbing to sport climbing, as well as bouldering.
The movement of climbing and the feelings you experience during a climb is priceless.
Her passion for rock climbing led her to AMGA (American Mountain Guides Association) to get single pitch instructor training. She is also a certified WFR (Wilderness First Responder) through NOLS (National Outdoor Leadership School in the US).
Along with climbing, Nazo is passionate about the yoga posture practice. She is a certified Yoga Teacher and has trained with two different yoga masters and is certified through both.
She has been teaching yoga, organizing yoga retreats and teaching in yoga and climbing retreats here in Cyprus as well as overseas. The love of the body, movement studies, healing through touch and the body-mind interest resulted in a Thai Traditional Massage Certification through the Yoga Massage School of Thailand (under the authorization by the Thai Ministry of Education). She continues this with Shiatsu Therapy Training which is truly magical work, where she is excited to delve deeper into the body-mind consciousness.
She enjoys the great big outdoors, from trail running to swimming in the blue seas.
She has long been fascinated with exploring the connection between yoga, meditation and climbing.
Nazo holds a Master’s degree in Food Engineering from the University of Maine and has worked many years as a food engineer in the US as well as in Cyprus.
