Madira Gregurek


Bringing the energy of the sunshine with her to Dundee from her motherland, Croatia, Madira exudes warmth and brightness.

She founded Hot Yoga Dundee in 2011 and following on from its growing success, opened Nomad Yoga in 2019, a dedicated studio offering hot yoga and pilates in the centre of Dundee.

Her yoga journey started in 1994 in Jaganath Puri, India, where she dedicated 4 years to living, breathing, and dreaming Yoga in all its limbs within Yoga Baladeva Ashram.

“My classical training has provided me with a lifetime of respect and dedication towards Yoga as a spiritual, physical and healing practice. I have been passionate about Yoga, dance and the arts all my life and I believe in the transformative potential of these mediums for personal and social change.”

Madira has additionally trained in Pilates (Alexander Technique & Pilates, Ireland) and Dance (MA Dance Performance, University of Limerick), enriching her teaching and allowing her to confidently work with people with spine, shoulder and hip injuries, as well as bringing a unique flow and softness to her Yoga practice. A nomad at heart, she has taught communities of sportspeople, dancers and students all over the world, including Sweden, Austria, Belgium, Germany, Greece, Ireland, Scotland, England, Croatia and India.

Madira seeks to empower her students to be strong, flexible, and easy in their bodies, peaceful and clear in their minds, and playful in spirit.

“Being a teacher here at Nomad Yoga Dundee gives me the opportunity to contribute and to share my experience, knowledge and passion for yoga with you. My teachers and I understand that every student has their individual reasons and needs for practicing, and whether it’s physical, emotional or spiritual, we will provide a welcoming, supportive environment for you to have the most positive experience.”

Evy koutzas


Seeking a method to release stress from work and studies, and incorporate fitness into her lifestyle, Evy discovered yoga whilst in graduate school. Her interest in yoga emerged slowly at first; however, upon experiencing heated vinyasa, she eagerly created a consistent practice, finding unexpected and powerful mindfulness connections on her mat that were far beyond her initial fitness hopes.

Evy completed her 200-hour vinyasa teacher training in her hometown of Chicago in 2012 and has furthered her knowledge with a restorative yoga course, a 50-hour Yin and Myofascial release training, and continued education workshops.

Evy moved to Dundee in 2016, and she’s been enjoying scaling Munro’s and adventuring around Scotland ever since.

As a teacher, Evy strives to provide an inclusive and inspiring environment where her students feel challenged yet supported- empowered through a practice that is strengthening and meditative. Each class will connect breath to movement, explore strength, and cultivate self-acceptance.

Sofia completed her teacher training in Athens, Greece, and has been bringing warm, sun salutation filled classes to the studio ever since. 

Alongside practicing yoga, Sofia is a bioscientist.

Ailsa has been exploring Yoga for quite some time now and finally took the plunge to complete her 200-hour Ashtanga Yoga Teacher Training course at Meadowlark, Edinburgh.

With 10 years instructor experience she loves to bring her energy and fresh ideas to her classes. Based at the University of St Andrews she teaches a range of other classes including Spin, Zumba and various bodyweight/strength classes along with personal training giving her a versatile skill set.

Min Li


Min started her yoga journey in 2015, three years after she moved to Dundee from China, when she was experiencing big life changes. She found yoga a great way of developing her strength, flexibility and confidence, as well as restoring emotional balance.

Min completed her 200-hour Foundation Teacher Training in 2019, and has furthered her yoga journey by completing a 50-hour Yin Yoga & Myofasical Release Training, a restorative yoga course, an Anatomy course, and a Perinatal Yoga Teacher Training.

Min is very keen to provide you with the tools to find out what your body needs and how to look after yourself and build up strength, flexibility and confidence in a nurturing and safe environment, helping you to connect to your authentic self.

Quinn Churchill


Quinn’s yoga journey began in her first apartment in 2020. During Savasana, she experienced a profound sense of true presence and peace for the first time, even after years of trying different kinds of meditation. This feeling ignited a deep passion and curiosity in yoga.

In that same year, Quinn embarked on a 200-hour yoga teaching course to explore the dynamics and teachings of yoga. In fall of 2021, Quinn discovered the Nomad Yoga Dundee studio, and a new door of yoga opened for her. She committed herself to a consistent practice at the studio, which proved to be exactly what she was seeking.

After months practicing at the studio, Quinn returned to Canada and started teaching at a small spa in her hometown. When starting her journey as a yoga teacher, Quinn found an opportunity to expand her awareness as a student of yoga and life.

Quinn is exceptionally fluid in her expression and translates this into her teaching style. In her classes, she invites you into your own unique expression and to join her in the transformative, healing, and playful gifts of yoga.

Savanna Gude


Savanna is a yoga teacher and outdoor instructor, living in Perth.

Yoga is a big part of her life, and she’s been teaching for 5 years now. She completed her  teacher training in 2017 at Kranti yoga in Goa India. Since then she’s traveled and taught around the world.

Savanna teaches creative vinyasa flows and peaceful Hatha flows focusing on the breath. When she’s not on the mat you can find her on the river, or up a munro!

Heidi Dore


Nature, neuroscience and ancient wisdom inspire Heidi’s teaching. She has been practising yoga for 20 years and teaching more than a decade.

Heidi’s qualifications include a 200 hour and 500 hour certificate with Vajrasati Yoga accredited by Yoga Alliance, and she is currently developing her expertise with professional mentoring from a senior teacher at Yoga International.

Her classes blend classical yoga with healing principles of Traditional Chinese Medicine and Shiatsu.

Heidi’s style is informed by sacred texts such as The Bhagavad Gita, Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras, The Tao Te Ching, along with a MA in Religion & Philosophy.

eLLEN forsyth


Ellen completed her 200hr YTT at Gayatri Yoga School, in both Vinyasa and traditional Hatha yoga. She adores teaching both styles as she believes that we can all benefit from the freedom of Vinyasa flow and the discipline of Traditional Hatha.  A real focus of hers when teaching is to remain in-keeping with Indian Yogic tradition through meditation, pranayama and mantra but also involving some of her scientific knowledge from her Anatomy degree by providing students with insight into the relationship between their body and asana.

Yoga is Ellen’s biggest passion, but additionally it has been crucial for her in regaining her own health after spending 4 years suffering from Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. This is one of the main reasons she decided she wanted to teach, as she wanted to be able to pass on the gift of yoga to other people and act as an example that yoga does not have to be perfect, bendy asana to change your life.

As her yoga career continues, she looks forward to spreading the benefits of yoga into the healthcare field.

Selena Putri

sOcial media manager

Selena is mixed Malaysian/Danish, and is a true nomad at heart, who feels most at home on her mat. Selena discovered a love for yoga in 2016, from the very first class she took with Madira at the University of St Andrews gym, where she was studying at the time.

Selena strongly believes that in the noise of today’s world, we can all benefit from taking time to come inwards and develop one’s own relationship with one’s self. Selena now embraces a new chapter in her yoga journey as a yoga teacher, and is committed to daily growth and learning from sharing her practice with fellow nomads.

For Selena, it has been the flow of asanas, lessons of mind-body connection, balance between control and surrender, and the tuning in to breath, which have been most valuable in training her whole being to face any adversity and find inner peace.

Although Selena no longer resides in Dundee, she is still an active part of the studio. She manages all the social media and content creation for Nomad, keeping our yogi’s inspired and up to date on the happenings at the studio.

Outside of yoga, Selena has recently completed her studies in Art History & International Relations, enjoys outdoor running, gardening, videography, cooking creative plant-based dishes, and hopes to one day open her own plant-based café.
