Registered Yoga Teacher. AFAA Certified Fitness Instructor.
Hello! I am Nani Kays Berger, an accountant/economist turned Fitness Instructor living in Portland, Oregon but grew up on the beautiful island of Kauai in Hawaii. I found my passion teaching fitness classes and can't wait to share them with you. My classes are high-energy, sweat-soaked, parties designed to make your workout fun. My goal is to make you feel healthy, sexy, happy....and confident within your own body! In each class I put emphasis on each movement with purpose, proper body alignment, and will help you understand muscle engagement while smiling and having a good time. I am an Advanced BUTI® Yoga Instructor & Master Trainer, E-Registered Yoga Teacher & YACEP, and POUND Pro®. My yoga is focused on alignment, flowing movement, and core strength. I have been practicing yoga for several years and enjoy Iyengar, Vinyasa and Ashtanga sytles. I have a Bachelor of Science in both Accounting and Economics from Portland State University.
In my spare time I can be found practicing BUTI® yoga, pilates, traveling, planning choreography and dancing! I believe every BODY can exercise and learn to love the workout burn. I encourage you to love and accept yourself in the present moment, feed your body with food that makes you feel good, throw away your scale and listen - pay attention to how your body feels. Do not diet, eat to nourish the body to be healthy. Smile at yourself daily and say something nice about your body inside and out.
