Nathalie & Eszter

Eszter and I lived in Sudan and have a deep love of the country. I am the fourth generation to grow up in Khartoum. My origins are from the Middle East. I started Blue Nile Lotus in 2008 where many Sudanese and expats came to practice yoga and meditation. Numerous individuals were trained at Blue Nile Lotus and earned their teacher training certificate. Eszter is Hungarian and worked for the UN when in Sudan.  Eszter is an amazing yoga and meditation teacher. Together we have run retreats and workshops worldwide. 

When the war broke out in Khartoum, our hearts ached. I had been in Khartoum a month before the outbreak of war and had started dreaming about spending more time in Sudan. Neither Eszter nor I went through what most of you went through.  What we would like is to be with you in community and offer tools to help you move through your own experience. We wish to create the space for you to remember who you are at your core. We hope to create a sense of community, so that you feel held during these challenging  times. We are not coming with western tools to resolve your trauma. We are aware that the institutions that come to ‘save or help’ are out dated. The healing can only happen by you. If you decide to join, we would be honored to accompany you as you move towards wellness
