Nova runs a private yoga therapy practice and offers bespoke teacher training in London, where her clients have included many prominent people in the fashion, music and film industry. She has worked with the Canadian Armed Forces to teach yoga and meditation to cultivate calm and relaxation post-tour, and the Canadian Olympic Swimming Team commissioned Nova to give pranayama and meditation yoga sessions before competitions.
Nova’s unique sequences have inspired students across the world, at both her retreats and her old studios in Kho Tao, Thailand (2005-7) and Kensington, London (2007-15). She is now based more in the New Forest, but continues to offer some continuing professional development (CPD) classes and workshops around the country plus regular classes at a few venues in London.
Nova Milesko’s yoga classes include elements of the hard, yang-styles, such as Akhanda, Anusara, Ashtanga and Vinyasa Yoga, and the softer, yin-styles. Her meditation and yoga experience goes back to the early 1980s when she first began to explore the practice of Buddhist meditations and yoga with her mother.
Her intense love of yoga and a need for a realistic approach to investigating the nature of things have helped her to create her own bespoke yoga teacher training which she currently runs once a year. She continues to learn, committing to at least a 100 hours of CPD per year – all of which gives her the food of knowledge to feed and inspire her students.
She has studied with world-renowned teachers Visvaketu (Akhanda), Shiva Rea (Vinyasa Flow) John Friend (Anusara) and David Swenson (Ashtanga). She has also been privileged to learn from inspiring teachers Sarah Powers, Paul Grilly, Sharon Gannon, Michael Gannon and Mathew Sweeny among others, amassing over 2000 hours of training and over 10,000 hours teaching.
